    997 dimensions

    I searched so much for this info ... I need it to compute the driveway angle for my house ... I thought I should share it with you.

    Re: 997 dimensions

    thanks

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Where did you find this info? Its pretty informative. Thanks!

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Thanks, Pentium. I'm also building a new house and will have a ramp down to a garage. I've had to use the old tape measure to get the clearance measurements.

    What are your dimensions for your ramp, so far?

    Re: 997 dimensions

    If anyone is interested....I have a autocad .dwg file for a 911.

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Got the file..thanks!

    Re: 997 dimensions

    many thanks indeed!

    Re: 997 dimensions

    I appreciate you taking the time to providing this. I was looking for precisely this information about 12 months ago when I was looking to get my drive reprofiled. The dealer provided some data but nowhere near as comprehensive as this.

    To make sure my new drive would work I constructed a wooden space frame to represent the underside of the C2S you may want to check out some pictures at:

    For any one interested I have a Powerpoint file with all the dimensions that I can email.

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Excellent post

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Thank you guys! It's really nice to know that I helped other people with the similar problem.

    Porsche930S: the dealer has a little book and I faxed one page from it. The hand was quicker than the eye that day

    SoCal Alan: I sent the new info to my architect so I don't have the latest dimensions but it's about 4 meters wide, 9 meters long and 1.2 meters deep in to the ground. Last time the angle resulted was 10.7 degrees which should be fine. We are talking about a city house similar with central New York houses. It's all cramped between other buildings so the garage is beneath the house (half of it at least). It was a nightmare to get the city hall approve the project but I am so close now ... I can't leave my baby to sleep in the street

    FSU-997TT: can you please post the .dwg file?

    Snarf: can you also post that .ppt file too?

    Re: 997 dimensions

    Pentium,

    Sent you a PM

    My new garage will be 3 feet below ground and the ramp will have a 15% slope. So my architect and I have been working very closely with the dimensions of my 997S. We are limited by the size of the lot and the easements of the street, height of the house, etc.

    Re: 997 dimensions

    SoCal Alan: looking at Porsche's numbers the slope should not have more than 11 degrees.

    Correct. At 11 degrees, that should equate to a 20% grade. tangent(11 degrees) = 0.20 . I need to double-check my math, though. I could be wrong.
