ECS Tuning sells it for $84.60 for a 5 liter can plus $11.70 shipping to my place, for a grand total of $96.30. Ships in 3 days.

Amazon sells Motul 8100 X-cess 5w-40 at $42.67 with free delivery, arriving in 2 days.

I'm pretty sure the Motul is "good enough". I wouldn't be surprised if the Motul is actually better.
Yikes, $96 bucks for only a little more than half what you need. My local NAPA usually has enough in stock for me.
Even worse is that the 996TT takes an additional 2 litters over us poor NA folks. And I thought the 996 was bad when it came out (highest capacity car I had until then was only 4 quarts!)

Looks like he can save a couple of bucks from Suncoast: https://www.suncoastparts.com/product/SKU5W50OIL.html (about $1/l)

I wanted to find the logic behind the ‘new’ ‘Classic’ line of oil, cuz Porsche has smart marketing people, right? So I burned quite a few brain cells doing some fuzzy math and calculus on an envelope. I used the Product Rule (real) to solve (imaginary) using a new form of math no one will ever use called differential integration.

Solve for d, where d = reason for product introduction

In a nutshell, where d=reason, Porsche solved the problem and concluded:

D*reason = 2x$

NO ONE warned me that there would be math on this forum. My head hurts now. I'm going to lie down. :shock:
