Anti-Freeze question

Posting for a friend. Can anyone tell me if regular anti-freeze can be used in an older Boxster (1999) ? If so any mixture recommendations ? He lives in Montreal Canada but does not drive in winter.

Thanks

My local independent Porsche repair shop recomends Zerex G05. So that is what I went with. They use it on all the German cars they repair.

No problem. The one issue with it is. It's almost clear. So hard to see through the coolant tank to see the level.
