When I bought my 2006 911 it only had one key. Checking with the local Porsche dealer, I got a cost of approx $500 for another key with remote. Doing a little research I found blank keys and local locksmith who can laser cut them. I also found a used key compatible w/2006 Porsche with remote. It has the same FCC ID as my key. Can my remote and the used one be reprogrammed to work on my ignition? Porsche dealer would also have to reprogram mine and the one I would order through them. Going the used route would certainly save quite a bit $$.

Yes, it is just a matter of the car learning the key. If you have one cut make sure you try it before you pull out of the parking lot!!.

This is just another example of the bean counters at Porsche ripping us off. These keys can be made for $10 if that and we all loose keys once in a blue moon.

During spelling class I was busy flying model rockets through the neighbor's window.

X2 There is a "chip" (transponder coil) in the key. The DME needs to be programmed to allow that chip to start the vehicle.

I believe the key must be programmed for your car.

I bought my Boxster from a dealer, and one point I negotiated was that they would supply me a second key as part of the purchase. Their cost was probably minimal (and wholesale) and it saved me the $400 quoted price if I had purchased one.

Too bad the Durametric software can't program a key for you.
