    911s cab with top up

    is the same noise wise as coupe? Thats what my dealer says at least you drive faster than 120-130 kmh?

    Re: 911s cab with top up

    I've driven both and the cab is definitlely louder inside at speed but only over 70-80 mph

    My ragtop BoxsterS is louder than my CarreraS coupe. BUT they did amazing things with the cab top. It's got several layers to reduce noise. Because it's not a big deal anymore with all those fabric layers, IMO, noise should be __a__ factor but not _the_ deciding factor when trying to figure out if a Cab is in your future.

    Re: 911s cab with top up

    If your question is: What's the more quietcar, than you have to take the coupe.
    If the question is wether the cab is anoyingly loud, then the answer is definetely: NO!!
    We had a 996cab which was pretty good isolated, but altough the 997's top looks the same, it' really a lot more quiet.
    IMHO the cab gives just that little more noise feedback to the interior what i miss in the coupe.
    Just go and compare them for yourself.

    Re: 911s cab with top up

    I don't ever really notice it in my Cab. Very tolerable and the stereo can be heard perfectly with the top up!

    The modern cab tops are very good in terms of sound insulation indeed. I recall an older thread where it has been stated, that - according to PAG's claims - the cab is LESS noisy with the top up (compared to the Coupé). Sounds strange, but could well be as the soft fabric may create less sound resonance compared to the Coupés metal roof.

    is that right?

    I read/heard that somewhere as well.

    Re: 911s cab with top up

    I still intend to do an objective test of this. Will be comparing an 06 S coupe, S cabriolet and S cabriolet mit hardtop. Will post results herein.

    when?

    Re: 911s cab with top up

    My '067 997 C2S Cab with the hardtop mounted is definitely quieter than with the softtop. That being said, the softtop is much quiter than my 986 ever was.

    And it sounds much BETTER with the top down .

    when I get a free day! Will maybe try in this coming weekend. I just don't want to run the test with variables that can negate the findings. Ideally, I want to find a set piece of roadway that can be taken at the same speed with a coupe, a cab, and with a cab with hardtop installed. The logistics of such a test is always the hardest.
