Does any body make a car cover for just roof/windshield area?

I am looking for a new waterproof cover that I can use throughout the year with the top up. My Boxster is parked out side and is used as a daily driver. I'd like to keep it totally dry and protect the rear window from the sun. I can't keep the car clean enough to use a full cover.

Wow that was fast. Thanks for the reply. $230 is a little steep though...

I have had a California Pop-top cover for a few years now

and really like it...much cheaper than those other options and does keep the interior cooler especially with a black top. I use it with the top down too sometimes. It needs replacing now and looks pretty ragged, but I would buy one again.

There is also the Reflectionite Cool Cap, and an "interior car cover," sold by Perf Prod that I've been looking at. Not sure if the latter will work well if the top is up.

I have used the Calif Pop-top and the Cool cap, because I want to keep the sun from killing my full leather interior. Both are made of Tyvek, the Cool cap having a metalized top surface, which is super-reflective, in fact, blinding when you install it.

After a couple of summers the Cool cap began to disintegrate. It is also a lot more complicated to attach than the Pop-top. Even though the Pop-top doesn't fit my car perfectly, I've used it a lot more, and when it begins to break down, I will probably get a new one.
