Synthetic vs conventional oil for Porsche

Conventional motor oil works for most vehicles, but not all. For high-output sports cars, synthetic motor oil works better. This type of motor oil is more refined and cleaner than conventional motor oil, so it works more efficiently in performance-enhanced sports cars. Synthetic, or “man-made”, motor oil is more expensive than conventional oil, but it is a higher quality and can improve your engine’s performance. Conventional oil typically needs to be changed every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, but synthetic oil can last upwards of 10,000 miles or more.
