What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1997 Porsche 911

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 911's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Porsche, from the axles to the transmission.

When you tune into you 1997 Porsche 911 drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow Porsche's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
