    993 4S has a wooden foot board???

    Hi everyone,

    Firstly thanks to everyone for your positive feedback on the beautiful white 993 4S I was fortunate to buy. When checking it through during the pick-up I pulled back the carpet on the driver side footwell to discover a wooden foot board (where the pedals are) Smiley. I asked the salesman at Porsche who was equally surprised and didn't know why it was there.

    Should I be concerned? Is this common practice? It definitely isn't something that came from Porsche (surely it would have been made from a non-flammable material if it was?), but it is a well crafted "plate" that has the niches for the pedal stems neatly carved out. I'm wondering what I'll discover if I remove the foot board. Smiley

    As it's just been driven for 6 hours it's covere with flys. As soon I've had a chance to wash it I'll be sure to post pics Smiley

    It came from the factory like that.

    It was like that since the beginning of the 911.

    I know my 911SC (1980 model) has wooden boards on either side.

    Yep. Same on '82 SC. 

    I think the current (or recent) Corvette has Balsa wood sandwiched in the floor pan. Good sound-deadening properties apparently.

    Interesting. I was wondering about the choice of materials but I guess it makes sense.

    Also very light and - most important of all in the context of the Corvette - cheaper and easier to work than the foam-filled "honeycomb" materials normally used in double-skinned structural components like the one in question.
