Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1987 Porsche 928. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 928 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Porsche 928 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 928) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Porsche 928 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
