What is the difference between a Porsche 911s and a 911lux?

I guess your talking about the 911S and 911L? Porsche basically introduced three letter designations in 1967-68 to name the different variants of the basic 911 they were introducing. They ranged from lowest to highest in power and luxury. The 911S was Porsche's "Sport" model 911 between 1967 and 1978. It had a more powerful engine than just the base 911 and included fancier trim, sporting the first Fuch alloys when it was introduced instead of the old 356 inspired wheels on the base 911. The "Sport" model was to receive the newest updates, including mechanical fuel injection, while the 911T was still stuck with a carburetor. The next step down was the 911L (it switched letters to 911E after a short time). It was basically a basic 911 model that sported the 911S trim, was a little less expensive than the 911S, and had a little more horsepower than the 911T, but a little less than the 911S. It was sandwhiched between these two models and was the middle of the road 911. The difference is that it was not as powerful as the S, and received new updates a little later than the S. That's about all I know. If your interested look it up.

English Spelling and Pronunciation

What is the correct pronunciation of Porsche?

Porsch-uh. It is a family name, and is pronounced this way in Germany. Standard rules of English prevent "e" from being spoken at the end of a word, however, so Porsch, without the "-uh" is a correct English pronunciation. Many auto brand names are pronounced differently in English. It is really a matter of preference, but Porsch-uh is more authentic.

It is alright for Americans to have this kind of pronunciation guide as the -uh is brief but here in the Philippines, Filipinos tend to exaggerate it so what comes out is a long -uh, making it sound like a girl's name "PORTIA" (porshia).

As a German language tutor, it should be correctly pronounced as a short "eh" as in danke, or the she in sherbet and I hope these Filipino newscasters stop pronouncing it as "PORSHIAHH"!


Where was Porsche created?

Porsche was created in Stuttgart, Germany.

How many seats does a Porsche have?

it depends... i have owned a porsche 968 coupe with 4 seats, a porsche 911 turbo with 4 seats, a porsche gt3 with 2 seats, and a posche carrera gt with 2 seats. The porsche's that tend to be faster more expensive seem to have 2 seats, due to the fact that a lot of the expensive 1's, especially the gt3's, are meant for racing/speed. 2 seated porsches have exra weight in the back of the car for traction and grip, which makes them easy to control in higher speeds.

Auto Insurance Claims

How do you make an insurance claim when someone hits you?

When you had the accident you and the other driver should have exchanged insurance company details and your names and addresses. If you didn't do it then, and there was a police report filed, you can probably get a copy of the police report. But you tell your insurance company you were hit,and give them the details of the other driver and their insurance company (I hope they had one!) and they negotiate liability with the other person's insurance company. Usually, like a rear-ending, fault is pretty obvious; sometimes not. But that's part of the reason you pay your insurance: so they can take care of stuff like this for you. Phil

Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Snow White

Why would a 1980 Porsche 925 recently spray a lot of antifreeze all over the engine?

Over time, the rubber in the radiator hoses becomes brittle causing it to crack very easily. As the hot radiator coolant surges through the hoses under pressure, it makes it very easy for the hoses to break. (most of the time in the hardest places to find) The solution to finding the hole would be to take a garden hose, and put it in the radiator top, run it so the radiator won't run out of fluid and try to assess where the water/coolant mixture is seeping from. Either have a garage fix it, or purchase a new hose and replace.

How do you repair a 944 hand brake?

What exactly is wrong with it? If this is an early car, pre '85.5 then it's easier to just remove it and replace it with a handle from a later car '85.5+. It's a direct bolt in and it's much more solid, the early ones tended to have lots of slop in them and the catcher would go past the teeth causing it to not work afterwards. If you don't want to change it you will have to remove the assembly disassemble it and then reset the catcher and then when you get done adjust your parking brake shoes and your brake cable so that it catches before the handle goes up that high.
