    997 Turbo roof rack

    I now have 3000 miles on the baby and loving every time I get into the saddle! A super car and great for traveling. I ordered a roof rack to tack mountain bikes and skis on trips. It finally came and here are some pics of the Porsche designed bike rack. It is very well constructed and easy to use (after you spend the required hour figuring it out).

    One more

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Now that's what I call a utilitarian look! Can you take a picture of the car with the mountain bikes in place too?

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    You bet. I'll do it in the morning. I'll do a couple of road bikes since the mountain bikes are at another place.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Road bikes are even better.... Thanks a lot buddy!

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    You bet. btw, I think you will love your cobalt blue when it arrives. I have a cobalt blue 996tts cab. Here's a couple of pics of that baby. Enjoy!

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Man..you are so cruel (just kidding)...posting pictures of your beautiful Cobalt 996TT! That's only going to make the wait even harder for me! 2 more weeks to go!

    You should take a picture of both cars and post it on here. Those would be nice pictures.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    I did that with them side by side in July when I first took delivery of the new one. I am sure its still available if you do a search for July. The last two weeks goes by fast because you are basically not in a clear thinking mode! It will be here before you know it and you will find it well worth the wait.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    DJB, We'll see...I'm gathering all the parts I need for the car as the delivery date nears.

    I couldn't find your pictures.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Here are a couple from my files...

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    I thought the roof rack was cool, but having a TTScab and a 997TT thats really coooool

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Yep! The 996tts is tuned to about 540hp and sounds mean. However, I must say that I find myself always hopping in the new 997tt. It has such a more precise feel to the handling that I notice when I go between the two.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    What about comparing the F360 and the 997TT in terms of handling feel?

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    I find the 360 and the 997tt more similar than the 996tt and the 997tt on the street. I have not had the 997tt on the track yet, but the 360tt with its midengine and "planted" feel felt more confident at the limit than the 996tt. All are great cars! Now, nothing compares on the track to the Lola T-296!

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    Hey Atomic80, here are some pics with a bike on the rack.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    turbo with a bike on top. That just made my day. Cracking up over here.

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    love your license plate. It fits the car

    Re: 997 Turbo roof rack

    I LOVE the look of your rack with the road bike on top! You do know that I meant a MOTORbike when I asked for one, right? Just kidding... Looks great!!

    Love the plate too! Clearly inspired!
