Does the 987 have motion sensors?

So I just read up on this "red clip" stuff and the thought came to me that I had no idea that Boxsters have internal motion sensors. The dealership never mentioned that to me! Does anyone know if the 987 has a similar setup?

This is straight out of the porsche website:

"To protect the car against break-in or theft, the new Boxster’s have an advanced and intelligent alarm system. An exterior monitoring function and radar-based interior surveillance are standard. The radar is permanently enabled unless the roof is lowered. The alarm is set whenever the doors are locked using the standard key remote. The standard system also uses an electronic immobilizer to protect the car from theft.
The system is simple: when you remove the key from the ignition the immobilizer is automatically set. When the key is reinserted, the immobilizer is disabled. Lose your key? It can be cancelled like a credit card so that no one else can use it. To ensure easy access to the cockpit in the event of an accident, all locks are automatically released if any of the airbags are deployed."

It's not very detailed...but at least it has something.

Ah thanks. I should've looked closer. Hmm... maybe I'll have to find some kind of way to enable that as you all have....

Call the parts counter of your dealership and ask for a little red clip that goes in the hole for the roof latch for a 987. If they don't have them yet, the company who makes them will certainly do so soon... I bet they've made a pile of cash off them and want to keep the cash rolling in for all the new Boxster owners out there.
