    991 now with glass roof

    Hi all!

    Anyone used car configurator today? A lot of new things to have ..... new leather color Umbra etc.

    Most interesting is a complete glass roof ...... 

    Price is about 550,- EUR above standard sliding roof ..... it is not totally clear if its sliding or not.

    Configurator works not correctly : from inside car it shows instead of glass roof only old sliding roof.

     

    Best regards

    it says "electric glass slide/tilt sunroof" on the international configurator ...

    Hi!

    very interesting ... and here the sliding video :

    It seems the standard sliding roof will become a non-seller .....

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    wow, that looks sh!t!
    So the sliding roof looks ridiculous when open, and the glass sliding roof looks ridiculous when open AND closed...

    Closed it looks real fine I think ..... its a middle between former Targa and Coupe.

    That means Targa is dead Smiley

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    That video just illustrates the aerodynamics of having the rear spoiler lift higher when the sunroof is deployed...yes

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    I love it.

    Wonder when RHD production of glass sunroof begins?

    Also wonder how much heavier the glass roof is compared to the steel?


    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    Great idea (I love a glass roof/panoramic sunroof) but poor execution.

    I think it means that the Targa will be diffirent from 993/996/997 Tartga's......Perhaps 991 Targa will be more like 964 Targa

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    It looks really strange in silver (with such a contrast between the silver colour and the roof colour.

    I agree with Joost, the new 991 sunroof looks horrific when open and this design looks weird.

    Seems to me the best choices are normal coupe or actual cabriolet.

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    I would prefer the Targa construction out of the 991. Rumours are saying that the new Targa will go back to solid B/C Pillar like in old days. Seeing this all glass option, it somehow wouldnt make sense to have the 997 Targa construction next to it. I dont like this full glas option neither I would like the tradtional Targa concept :(


    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    Although i haven't seen this actual 991, judging by a similar concept used by Mercedes on various models, to my eyes it is not bad looking at all. I've seen various C class, E class and SL in white and silver and this theme makes nice contrast.

    Exactly. My C63 AMG Coupe has a similar roof and it looks pretty good in my opinion. Not sure however how the additional weight "up there" influences car handling.

     PCM also standard in the UK.


    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    How did this just "appear" on the configurator?  I thought we had reliable sources..?  Not a single "rumour" on this one, RC..?

    Re: 991 now with glass roof

    i have always wished they could make a clear moon roof as opposed to the solid sun roof. this is a nice option but i think i would do it on a dark coloured car.

    Looks great.....  It is close to my Targa 4S,,,


    Re: 991 now with glass roof
