Default Adventures with Porsche Entry and Drive

(Or "How to Operate your Macan without the keys...")

May wife and I went grocery shopping last evening. I dropped her off at the grocery store and I drove over to the other side of the shopping center to kill time (and avoid spending an hour pushing the shopping cart). I parked the Macan, got out, and tried to open the rear door to get my rain jacket. The door wouldn't open. That's odd. So I pressed the door unlock on the front door and retrieved by rain jacket. Then it dawned on me... I don't have my keys! I had been able to run the car because she had her key in her purse. So I put on my rain jacket and walked back over to the grocery store to get her keys, then walked back over to the store I was originally going to. Oh, did I mention it was raining? Imagine that... raining in the Pacific Northwest!

How far away can you drive without the key before the car starts to complain?

With both of you having keys, which key is the car talking to? Hers or yours?

I find this interesting because of the way BT connects to cars. Which phone is the BT connecting to, driver or passenger, or passengers in the back? I've had this happen in other cars thinking the phone was connected to mine when it was connected to another phone.

The strange thing about porsches system is that there isn't a starter button to go with the keyless entry. Regardless, it should detect the key not present and flash up a warning. That's what other cars do. Past that, whether the engine is disabled or not I don't know. That's why I have a tracking system just incase

She got out at the grocery store and I drove about 600 yards with no key in the car, with no indication anything was amiss. When we both have our keys, it usually responds to the key that is closest to the drivers seat, but sometimes it is whoever gets close to the car first. I haven't been able to figure out a pattern on the Bluetooth - sometimes it connects to my iPhone, sometimes to hers.

The dumbest thing is that they gave the car keyless start and instead of a button it's a fake key...WTF PORSCHE

Just went out to the garage and experimented. Same results. Never noticed it in 3 years with the car, I guess the car doesn't check on door close like Lexus and Honda.

Glad you shared. Oh and yes I'm still keeping my Macan I can live with it behaving like this LOL

I happen to know someone who drove from Akron to Cleveland not knowing there was no key inside.
Don't ask me how I know this. ��
