    997 GT3 Clubsport question

    I have a question on the 997 GT3 with clubsport option: does anyone know if is it possible to remove the complete rollcage from the car?

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    i would be pleased to help, but don't really get your demand.
    It surelly must be possible but i would say it'll be very complecated and you might have some difficulties at the bottom of the rollcage.
    The top under the roof, i guess want be a problem. The hard one must be at the side were the rollcage goes into the coachwork.

    More i can't say. sorry.

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    Hi Cram, i explain myself a bit better.
    I've been searching for a while a used 997GT3 no clubsport but it's apparently quite difficult to find one here in switzerland.

    Today i've received a call from my dealer saying that he has something i could be interested in. Unfortunately, at least for me, it's a clubsport version but with all the options i'm interested in.

    So my question relative to the removal of the complete rollcage since to me it would be nice to use the space behind the seats for occasional stuff.

    Removing the rollcage is not a big job - less than 1 hour's work. It does call for 2 people to do it, to eliminate the risk of damage to interior trim when taking the cage out of the car.

    It leaves holes in the carpet where the cage normally fits. Maybe the dealer would give you a deal on a second carpet section for the rear window area?

    Thanks for the details. I've send you a MP. Would be happy for you if work the way you wish it.

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    Well i hope so.
    Nice to know that also the complete rollcage can be taken out since i thought this could be possible only for the small one.

    Thanks guys. I will have a chat with my dealer about it

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    I would leave the cage in in the back. you can always remove it if you are disturbed by it. but it does add regidity which is well suited for GT3...

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    At least, when purchasing the car, keep the rollcage stored for resale purposes. From my understanding, the cage is bolted on. If the car features the carbon bucket seats, which should be this way if it is a CS version, it will be difficult to use the space in the back anyhow.

    Thats why the new folding seats are awesome. more comfortable and capable with the roll cage to put things behind.

    Re: 997 GT3 Clubsport question

    And that's why, if i take the car, i will ask the reseller to change the seats as well for the bucket ones
