Hello, I'm Brandon - Porsche tech.

A small pit, even if you can't see it, is enough to make the glass weaker at that point. Torsional stress and/or changes in temperature can cause crack to run more easily than you would think.

The cost to replaced the windshield is around $500.

If the crack is small enough you could stop the crack by doing a windshield repair. The cost of the kit is $13.

Anything bigger than a penny diameter is too large to repair.
