2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

Takahashi noted it first, and although I always hope for spontaneous remission of car problems, there has been no self-healing here. The "check engine" light in our 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet continues, in its very correct German way, to covey both information and blame.

We'll report back on what this "fault of the engine control system" turns out to be. We've checked for both loose gas and oil caps. Both are firmly in place.

What's the first thing you do when you get a "check engine" light?
