Hi all,  anyone have a website listing the OEM battery post bolt?  Turns out I was having some electrical issues, while troubleshooting, I discovered

the bolt was stripped.  While I was trying to remove it, the bolt snapped.  Worst part?  It was like this when I bought the car from a Porsche Dealership

in CT.

I don't believe the bolt is available separately, only in a complete cable.  You may be able to find an aftermarket from someone like Dorman that would fit.

Sheesh..it's a bolt.  Go to Ace Hardware and buy a new metric bolt and nut.  Also, most auto parts stores have replacement bolts for the battery connector cable.

Well sir, I already did as you suggested as I wouldn't be able to drive the car.  

 

I came here for help & information not judgment or ridicule.  

 

I would really like to keep the car as original Porsche as possible is why I asked if anyone knew where to get this bolt.

Sorry to be so short.  If it is helpful here is the battery diagram.  You could buy either #1 or #4 for a completely new cable with the bolt and nut.  AutoAtlanta only sells OE Porsche parts and is a good source for OE Porsche parts.
