    987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    Does anyone know already whether the 987 features a completely automatic roof? That is, does you still have to manually unlock the roof or did the Boxster get the same automatic lock from the 911?

    I assume that it is now fully automatic, because you can open it during the drive (<50 km/h).

    Actually, I was in Paris and sat in the new Boxster, but the roof was down and therefore the lock not visible.

    Re: 987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    I asked tis on boxa.net

    The brochure states you can open/close up to 31mpg - same as my 996. So this would infer a non-manual operating hood. You dont want people undoing hood clips on the move !

    You still have to unlock manualy the roof. Sorry. Same as the 986.

    Re: 987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    if the manual states that it can open close at speed, it is 99% likely that the roof will be fully automatic.

    Re: 987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    Yesterday was a short test of the new Boxster S on German television. Nothing too interesting. But there the roof lock was shown.

    Yes, it is a manual one as before on the 986. (The outer ring seems to be in alu colour now.)
    And yes, you can open it during drive at speeds below 50 kph.

    I am somewhat sorry. I hoped it would get the 996 automatic lock which would have included that you can remote control the roof.

    Re: 987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    That's a big surprise.

    I wonder then, they say you can open the roof whilst moving, can you close it? I remember my g/f used to have to use both hands to lock the top on my '01 Boxster. That could prove interesting......

    Re: 987 Boxster roof lock automatic?

    Sure you can close it too while driving but if you need both your hands, then I would not recommend it. I guess it's cheaper to make the roof lock not automatic.
