You're not supose to drive a Porsche in bad weather. No rain. No snow. Only on nice days. Bad things happen at night. Only drive during day light.

Keeping you cell phone charged, and a tire plug kit might save ya.

$1300?? In the back seat?? Not on your life. $6.00 plug kit and a compressor (comes with the car) do it for me. If you all don't know how to use a plug kit I'd be happy to do a DIY. The hardest part is finding the hole after that it is all brawn and minimal brain.

While it isn't intended to make tires sound quieter or ride smoother, Continental Tire's ContiComfortKit is capable of comfortably sealing typical tire punctures making it possible for you to complete the drive home, to work, an important appointment or a tire repair facility. The ContiComfortKit carries Germany's TUV approval and is suitable for use with passenger car tires, including run-flat designs, as long as the vehicle's recommended tire pressure does not exceed 43 psi (3.0 bar) and the tire dimension is within the recommended application range.

That is basically what comes with the 997.1. Goo and a compressor. I wonder what kind of mess this stuff makes of your wheel and tire. Of course Porsche strictly recommends replacing the tire with any damage. I have driven plenty of plugged tires down to 3/32" without any trouble. My wife is an expert at finding nails. I keep up to date goo in the car in case I can't make it to a lift or home to my floor jack. I have always been able to make it home as most of the time you get a slow leak. Anybody know someone who has actually used this stuff? Oh, and driving in the rain is great fun. Much easier to get the a-- end out!

LOL, so your wife keeps getting nailed. Ooops, that came out wrong!:)

I'd never use the goooo with my cars. That's why I carry the tire plug kit.

And stop driving in the rain. I may want to buy your Porsche some day.:):)

Regarding the goo in the car, my dealer recommend never using unless it's absolutely necessary (stuck in the middle of nowhere). The issue is that when you do use it , it makes a mess but also the pressure monitor sensors need to be replaced, guessing they cost some unnecessary dough if you just swap the tire.

You won't like the price, but there is a spare available http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/991SPARE.html?Category_Code=991BASECHASSISWHEELACC

Apologies but that almost seems like a 4/1 joke! LOL maybe a timeshare on tow trucks is a good idea for people with no-spare-cars.

 

No kidding! Seriously, who the heck would ever do something like that to their beautiful 911? You'd have to be so afraid of a flat tire that you'd be driving a military-grade Hummer instead of a 911
