Looking for Porsche mechanic/specialist shop on Long Island, NY

Just bought a 1998 911/933 and looking for a specialist that can handle all jobs, big and small.

I've seen a few online, but would appreciate any suggestions of places on Long Island, NY

I'm sure I'm not alone in wanting a shop that really knows Porsche/air cooled cars.  

Thanks in advance.


horn stays on 1995 993

I bought the car with the horn fuse removed. I thought it might be the usual bad horn return grommets and replaced them. It stays on when I replace the fuse. It is a very early model without upgraded alarm equipement (no remote).  It is the original sheering wheel which I found out for Porsche parts area, the 1995's had a service advisory to replace in 1996 the steerring wheel, airbag, and airbag mounting bracket.  Mine was not upgraded so the new airbag mounting bracket will not work. 

How do I shorten alignment spikes on 993 Convertible top?

I recently purchased a 993 vert and the spikes that align the front of the convertible top to the windshield are starting to punch holes in the top when it is lowered.  I assume that the prior owner or shop that installed the top did not use the proper length on the spikes.  Is there a way to shorten or adjust the spikes so they do not continue to pressure the top while it is down?  It won't be long until there are holes due to the issue.  Thank you very much!

'96 993 right rear noise when in a left turn

Whining noise from my 1996 993 C2 cabriolet. When I turn to the left only I hear a noise that sounds like it is coming from the right rear quarter area. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks!


Where is the best place to repair / replace a 1997 993 cab near O'Hare?

I have a smallish tear about 3 to 4 inches long on the convertible top.  Just need a reputable referral for an upholsterer / convertible top specialist.

Thank you, Steve - 847-312-5898



Manual Set Number Tags

Recently purchased a set of owners manuals on eBay for my 1996 C4. One item was two plastic sheets of numbered tags. The individual tags can be removed from the sheets. See the attached photo. Does anyone know how these "tags" are used? I've never seen them before.

Convertible Top is stuck in the OPEN/DOWN position - is there a fuse or relay or poss a sensor at the Emerg Brake that may not be allowing the roof to close ?

My rag top is currently stuck in the OPEN/DOWN position - I can tell that it is getting power as I can hear a clicking sound when I press the button to raise it. What should I check for (fuse, relay, pressure switch at Emerg brake...?)


thx for any help !
