The Boxster hood system is perfectly matched to the dynamic exterior design. It opens in just 12 seconds and can even be operated while the car is in motion at speeds of up to 50 km/h (approx. 30 mph). The glass rear screen is heated and scratch-resistant. The Boxster models ensure unrestricted driving pleasure – and not only when the sun is shining.
A concertina action protects the interior rooflining when the hood is folded away. The hood itself is made from a fade-resistant robust fabric which is specially protected against ultraviolet light. The hood structure is very light and stores compactly for a low vehicle centre of gravity with no loss of storage space. The interior is lined with a stylish and practical heat-insulating fabric that also reduces exterior noise.
The optional hardtop is elegantly styled to match the exterior of the Boxster models. It is made of robust aluminium and weighs just 23 kg. The integral glass rear window is, of course, heated.
On request, a three-piece wind deflector is available which reduces turbulence in the head and shoulder area. It is easily installed on the rear roll-over bars. The wind deflector is available in combination with the storage box on the rear bulkhead panel or with the BOSE® Surround Sound System.
