2013 Porsche 911: Adding Oil and Water in the 991

February 6, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

Hanging the engine off the back end of the 911 creates its own unique set of challenges, like basic maintenance for one. The engine in a 911 is buried so deep within its bodywork that you're lucky to see so much as a single hose let alone any of the actual mechanical parts that make this thing run.

Of course, everything can't be off limits, so Porsche kindly added these helpful fill points for the oil and water systems. Getting to them requires hitting the button up front that raises the cover for the convertible top, so they remain hidden otherwise. Porsche even finished them off with metallic-trimmed caps. It's the least it could do for a $100K.
