I used to be a mechanic for 20+ years .. I would say change the oil every year.
as with the brake fluid, Your brake fluid attracts moisture from sitting which
can rot the brake lines.
I don't know what fluid the Porsche takes as I don't have one "Yet" few more months
but if its something like 90W every few years is fine just make sure to check the level.

Thanks for the advice chaozz. Porsche recommends changing brake fluid every 2yrs and oil at least every 2 yrs (if driven <9000 miles per year). I decided to change oil every yr and brake fluid every 2yrs, as recommended. The brake fluid they used was Castrol. I don't know if it was 90W. Glad to have you join the Porsche Club. It's my favorite car. Thanks again for the advice.
