For Our Porsche Aficionados
Do you know the proper pronunciation of “Porsche”? In keeping with the family name of their founder, Ferdinand Porsche, the family name is pronounced emphasizing the final ‘e’. Strictly speaking, you should pronounce it “porsch-eh”.
Ferdinand Porsche, the eponymous founder of the company, made the world’s first hybrid electric vehicle in 1899! It was essentially an electric car with an internal combustion motor used as a generator. It was also the first car with brakes on all four wheels.
Not only are Porsche vehicles the iconic “kings of the road”, they also dominate the sport of car racing. With over 30,000 race victories, no other brand can keep up with them in the record books, let alone the track. To read all of the awards granted to the Porsche brand over the years, you can find them listed on their official website.
Common Problems with Porsche Automobiles
Porsche Lower Control Arms: With age and mileage, critical suspension components such as control arm bushings, thrust rods, tie rods, ball joints, sway bar links and wheel bearings begin to wear and lose their effectiveness. Over time, your Porsche will lose some of its key handling characteristics. As a driver, you may begin to hear “creaking” noises and/or notice front-end vibrations or shimmying when going over road bumps or hitting pot-holes. These are indicators that your suspension needs attention.
At Eurasian Auto Repair, one of the most common suspension issues we see with Porsche vehicles is worn or failed control arm or thrust arm bushings (thrust arms are the forward facing control arm). The control arm bushings take most of the force during braking, cornering, and heavy acceleration.
Porsche Bad or Failing Coolant System: A symptom of a bad or failing coolant reservoir is the engine overheating. If the coolant reservoir has any problem that prevents it from properly holding coolant, or from properly pressurizing the system, it may cause the engine to overheat. Porsche engine overheating should be addressed as soon as possible in order to prevent any possible damage to the engine.
Porsche Brakes: One common complaint about Porsche vehicles is that brake pads and rotors may wear out prematurely. When it comes to brakes, you need to find out the problem BEFORE replacing parts. Brake issues are a safety concern and should be addressed by an expert. Furthermore, a professional technician with experience will be able to tell you whether or not these repairs could be covered under warranty or if they are part of a recall.
