    Underside protection plate!

    This protective steel plate featuring a black paint finish is designed to protect the underside of the Cayenne, particularly in difficult terrain, while maintaining the generous ground clearance on gradients. Can be fitted in conjunction with stainless steel skid-plate.

    Part no. 955 107 981 00

    I had not seen this before. I found it on the Posche UK website (web page). It does not appear on the US site.

    I think I want one.

    Re: Underside protection plate!

    Pretty cheap and highly effective. It doesn't affect ground clearance. Part number is 955 107 981 00, cost is around 220 Euro in Germany incl. 16% tax but without install (which is pretty easy).

    Re: Underside protection plate! GET ONE NOW!

    Haver just ordered one for my S (which left the factory 2 days ago!!!!) Dealer hadn't got one in the tequipment brochure so spoke to the techs, apparently there has been a memo through advising that these are fitted for anyone who intends to go off-road, as the engine is a bit vulnerable without it!!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED (BTW cost me Pounds125+17.5%vat) Dealer will fit it for me when the vehicle is PDI'd.

    Re: Underside protection plate! GET ONE NOW!

    I just ordered one this morning; $300.08 with PCA member discount. I think I will put it on myself when it gets here and post some photos of the install.

    Also, the dealer had a new Tequipment Cayenne catalog that had this part in it, with photo and part number. But, the US website still does not! If you want the latest information you can forget the US website.

    Re: Underside protection plate!

    I've never worked on one without the off-pavement package, so I only just now realized that that piece is included in the $2800 'running-board' package. Lucky me.

    A somewhat random question

    RC, I'm curious to know if there's any significance to the 955 or 981 in the part number? Does the Cayenne have a factory code like 986/996?


    Re: A somewhat random question

    i think that 955 is the cayenne factory 996 and 986.
    here in italy you can order the protection plate in alu
    code :955 044 800 15 cayenne turbo
    955 044 800 16 cayenne S

    factory order code :2JC price 516 euro (inc. vat.)

    Re: A somewhat random question

    :955 044 800 15 cayenne turbo
    955 044 800 16 cayenne S

    That's the front Stainless Steel Skidplate. This one is different. It mounts further back. It's steel, but not stainless, and it's painted black.

    Re: Underside protection plate! GET ONE NOW!


    Where did you order yours? Can you just go to the local dealer and get one or did you have to order through a dealer in the UK? I'd be really interested in one since I don't have the air suspension.


    Re: Underside protection plate! GET ONE NOW!


    Just go to your US dealer (Boardwalk or Park Place for you). I ordered mine from RB yesterday when I dropped the Cayenne off for the lurching fix. I think any Cayenne going off-road could benefit from one. That's just my opinion right now since I have not yet seen it, but from the description it sounds like you can't go wrong.


    Re: Underside protection plate! GET ONE NOW!

    Thanks Gary. I'll check it out next week and report back.
