This was found on the driveway.  It is from a  996 and is about 70mm long (hex head) and takes a 3mm allen wrench.  Any ideas?


Thanks in advance!

This may be silly but, what was the condition of the bolt?  Was there oil on it, brake dust, tranny fluid.  If there is a lack of such, maybe part of suspension on front end?


edit: last thought (it actually looks like a case bolt from a motorbike to me) ... the color.  Aren't most bolt on the engine a silver tone?  So where are black bolts found?

Condition: no dust, oil or dirt. The head is painted gloss black ~1/4 of the way from the top and is in perfect condition.

Reminds me of a neighbor I had as a kid, he was always yelling at us and we kinda hated the guy,,

He would work on a Old Jaguar in his driveway,, when he went in the house we'd toss a bolt or nut under the car..


Yep we were kinda evil brats back then.. 😄
