HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE PORSCHE BUSI­NESS?

HELP­ING YOU RUN YOUR PORSCHE

911 Porsche World - - Market Forces -

Key­less En­try on your­mod­ern Porsche is con­ve­nient, but as se­cu­rity ex­perts have been point­ing out, it­makes the car eas­ier to steal, and us­ing a scan­ner (pic­tured), thieves, who have worked out where the owner lives, can cap­ture the elec­tronic data on a key fro­mout­side the prop­erty, and open and start the car with­out the key.

How­ever, you can make thieves’ lives much­more dif­fi­cult. Scanners can re­ceive in­for­ma­tion through walls and win­dows, but­metal is an ob­sta­cle. So put the key in ametal con­tainer or buy a met­allised sig­nal block­ing pouch de­signed to shield elec­tronic keys. On key­less sys­tems, in­clud­ing Porsche’s, you can­man­u­ally set the key to func­tion only as a tra­di­tional key, which we’re told also foils scanners.
