Continuous immobiliser problems, resulting in the car having to be towed to the dealer several times.

Battery goes flat quickly, mainly due to lack of use.

General Comments:

Last time the car went to the dealers for the alarm to be looked at, we received a non-Porsche set of keys (we are still trying to get them back).

Running costs are huge, although servicing costs have been more than fuel (car has only done 7500).

Sports suspension means scraping the chin on speed bumps and other inclined surfaces. The car would have been sold if only I could get the right money for it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
