Several things . Radiatior might need flushed or cleaned out . Make sure fan is working properly . and make sure radiator is clean in front of it and between it and air conditioner condensor if equipped ..sometimes air flow is a problem . Radiator cap is proper pressure cap. also some cars you have to make sure radiator is completely full and overflow is at proper level. meaning they can get air locked so run if a while while filling it .. to get air worked out . thanks Jerry holler if you need more.

You may want to check and see if the porsche has a coolant sensor. if so, it can also cause overheating.

Double check the thermostat and make sure the water pump is doing its job. To check the thermostat, simply take it out and reassemble the housing with out the unit. Run the engine and hopefully it will get warm to hot. If not check the pump.

Overheating no water in oil

Check coolant level. If no loss check thermostat. Also check the the thermostatic relay that runs the electric cooling fan for your cooling system to draw air through the radiator. If the will fan will not engage it will overheat in minutes.

Overheating....changed waterpump/thermostat!

Take the overflow tube out of recovery tank and immerse in container of water. Run engine and watch for bubbles. (head gasket) Is your fan coming on? (fan or relay)

Porsche boxster 1998 overheats very easily

it could be the thermostat has gone bad-does top hose get hot if no then likely bad thermostat, water pump is bad if pulley is wobbly it is bad, radiator is clogged with corrosion, look in rad when cold and if it is dirty or milky it needs flush and refill with new antifreeze

Water is not flowing in pipes

You need either a new thermostat or a new water pump.

Take off your radiator cap (when the car is cold) and then start it. If it looks remotely like a geyser in Yellowstone, you have a blown head gasket.
