 Clacking noise (2 to 3 "clacks") when starting out or when coming to a stop. Had car on ltift and when turning either back wheel noise can be duplicated. Sound is either in trans or diff. not real loud but scary.  Can hear a slight whine when at highway speed with speed steady. Bring on torque and noise stops. The clacking only started after had full maintainance performed on car which included trans and diff fluid replacement. Respected Porsche specialist listened to the noise and said probably ok to drive until it gets worse and then transmission repalcement will be necessary as the most cost effective fix. Car is never driven hard since I have owned it (2012). Transmission shifts perfectly-no hard shifting. Have you ever run into this before?
