Can You Help Identify the Thumping Noise on this New Porsche 991?


The owner of a new 991-generation 2012 Porsche 911 has posted a short video of his car on YouTube under the alias "tmayeli", where he seeks the assistance of the online community to trace a problem with his ride.

From the clip, we hear a thumping noise when he turns the steering wheel at low speeds.

We don't have a lot of details to shed on this, but the owner stated that he took the 991 to a Porsche dealer after hearing the sound, which he says is sourced from the front end of the car. The dealer told him that this is something normal when outside temperatures are under 40 Fahrenheit or 4 degrees Celsius.

The driver explains: "This is a 2012 Porsche 991 with popping noise coming from the front of the car. According to the dealership this is normal when ambient temperature is less than 40 Degree Fahrenheit. I contacted the North American Porsche and send them this video; however, they said they would not open this file since I may be sending them a virus. So I am posting this online so they can respond to."

Think you can pinpoint the source of the noise or at least offer a plausible explanation after watching the following clip and help the owner understand what's going on?
