Keep in mind, many of these vehicles, like the Porsche 911, Chevy Corvette, Jeep Wrangler and Ford F-150 have been around for a very long time, so the H6/Group 48 battery may not fit every year, make & model listed above. Please use our OPTIMA battery finder to see if the year, make & model of your vehicle has a direct-fit OPTIMA battery option.
