Interior Cover

Does anyone know where could I get one that does not cover the windshield but only the interior?

Happy Boxstering,

Thanks guys! I checked the price and wow, they are expensive.

A member in another forum, are giving me his cover that's been sitting in his garage. It's similar to the picture I posted and they are free

Check eBay item #110804983178 , I was thinking about it myself, but I know I will never install it if I bought it. Be nice to see someone get it that will use it. I have also seen the other "cockpit covers" that you pictured for sale from time to time on eBay. Good luck, this is a fabulous price. P.S. it says no instructions are included, but you can become a contributing member at Renntech.org and view all porsche TSB's. Full instructions for install there.

That's California Pop-Top...I have one and love it. Light weight, easy to put on and takes up very little room in the trunk. Cockpit covers are nice but are not water proof...not good for a Porsche with all the electronics in the car.

Cool! Thanks jcb...that was nice to hear that you love the pop top. I will mainly use it during the warm weather to avoid opening and closing the top.

I know that it's just a matter of time that my 12 yr old plastic window will crack

I will post the picture after I pick it up today :-)

Don't forget to get the red clamp from Porsche you put in place of your top clamp (when the top is down). This activates your alarm while your not there!

I was thinking about getting a tonneau cover but am not sure if I want to drill holes in the body and pop rivet velcro under the clamshell. Installation is not for the faint of heart. Can someone who has a tonneau chime in and let us know whether they like/use it or not.

I don't have a tonneau on my Boxster, but I had one on my Miata. On the Miata, it had several advantages. (1) It was quicker to use the tonneau than putting the boot on and taking it off when you raised and lowered the top. (2) I bought a second-hand one that had never been installed for $80. (3) It seemed to complement the British roadster spirit of the car. It was pretty simple to install with no drilling into the body.

With the Boxster, I just don't see the same advantages. Although I have to "chop" my plastic window, it is much easier to raise and lower the top on the Boxster. The roll bar sticking up through the tonneau just looks odd to me. The cost is prohibitive, and I'm reluctant to drill holes in my car.
