recommended engine oil


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 Carrera ; Year: 1986; Body Type: Convertible; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.2; Total Mileage: 78k;

My car is a Euro version (ZZZ) Carrera.I have heard many opinions on what is the correct motor oil to use in the older 911's and all the controversey per ZDDP or the lack thereof.I have also heard that Porsche now recommends Mobil 1 for all 911 models after 1984. Is this true?Also, what brands does Porsche recommend if an owner wants to stick with the dino oil?Porsche previously specified Shell Rotella for my car. What do they say now about Shell oil?Thanks much for all the great emails that I receive per your forum. You guys provide a valuable service to the average owners of older 911's.
