Porsche Classic launching branded motor oil for air-cooled boxer engines

Filed under: , , ,

Porsche Classic Motoroil

It's hard not to love the look of a classic Porsche. Whether it's the upside-down bathtub styling of the 356 or the gradual evolution of the 911, there is a little beauty in all of them. However, the older they get, the more that needs repaired to keep them on the road. Porsche Classic is helping out, though, by introducing its own brand of motor oil for the demands of the company's vintage, air-cooled engines.

Developed at the Porsche Development Centre in Weissach, Germany, Porsche Classic Motoroil comes in two weights - 20W-50 for the 356, 914 and 911 models up to the 2.7-liter G-Model and 10W-60 for 3.0-liters-and-up engines through the 993-chassis 911. The company claims that the air-cooled engines have different heat demands than traditional, water-cooled units, and this oil is made to meet those requirements.

According to Porsche, modern, synthetic oils are sometimes too effective when it comes to old engines. They are fantastic at sopping up debris, but those deposits are often holding archaic seals together. Suddenly removing them can cause leaks. The new oil is specifically designed to work with the old-fashioned materials found in its classics. The company also knows that most owners aren't driving their vintage cars everyday. So this formulation is more alkaline that normal to neutralize acids that they build up and corrode components.

Both weights are available now to order from Porsche dealers. The 20W-50 costs $11.83 for a one-liter container and $51.27 for a five-liter bottle. The 10W-60 goes for $15.55 for a liter and $68.68 for five liters, according to company spokesperson Calvin Kim. Even if you don't have an air-cooled model, it might be worth buying a can for the cool design. Scroll down for the official announcement.

Classic Porsche Crest

The steady-handed folks at Porsche Classic are now willing to sell you a perfectly reproduced emblem for your early 911 or 356. The work that goes into creating this badge, it seems, is fairly extraordinary.

This epically scored mini film - seriously, it sounds like a Wagner-meets-Chant up in there - is like a Mr. Rogers video short, but for car guys. Follow along as the Porsche crest goes from hunk of metal to shiny icon, with typical German precision. Scroll down to find the details in Porsche's press release, as well.
