    Rollbar for Turbo Cab

    I see from the European order guide there is a roolbar offered
    (rear seat delete) for the new Turbo Cab. Not offered here in the US. Does anyone have a part#?
    Is it the same rollbar available for the Ordinary Cab?
    TIA

    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    Seems to be the same rollbar, part no. 996 580 984 00.

    What comes first, the rollbar or the car?

    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    Wayne, are you referring to the Porsche rollbar (the chrome one)? If so, it meets no track specifications or PCA or POC. The mounts points for it are not strong enough.

    Re: cosmetic rollbar?

    So they provide a "looks" bar? And you remove the rear seats for that?
    That's worthless..I need one so I can run at least 165 mph tech at Silverstate. The cage I had in the coupe was functional; AND it looked cosmetically correct.
    Stable what stable? Sold the 996 TT, just delivered the Viper Competition Coupe to the Canadian racer,,down to the Lincoln Navigator and my wifes 996 (hate to drive it afraid I'll scratch it or worse !) Stradale and spider waiter.
    Yes ordered.... Nov build slot.,.. lapis with Graphite.

    I want the rollbar here so I can have it installed day or maybe 2 or 3 after delivery!

    Re: cosmetic rollbar?

    wayne, the party line for a long time was that this bar was FIA approved. rumor is that porsche found out the vendor was full o crap. gert has never been able to obtain FIA documention either. POC and PCA both have requirements for which this bar falls.

    Right. I've been assured that this rollbar provides some safety improvements during a rollover but it is not FIA approved and it does not provide the same safety as a "real" rollbar.
    So yes, maybe this is some kind of "cosmetic" rollbar, even if it serves some purpose during a rollover.

    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    RC,
    is it possible to post a picture of this "cosmetic" Rollbar ?

    Sure. Here it is.



    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    I know nothing about this stuff, but do you think that rollbar in combination with the little factory thingys that pop up would provide sufficient protection? Just asking....no flames pls

    "I know nothing about this stuff, but do you think that rollbar in combination with the little factory thingys that pop up would provide sufficient protection?"

    Maybe, but it still isn't legal for many tracks and many clubs in the U.S.

    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    The roll bar for the cab is for 'sport' use. It is ok for drivers ed and basic street use, but is not suitable for racing. I am argueing with PCA right now about the suitability of the gt3 cage for racing and they are giving me a hard time

    Re: ROLLBAR for Turbo CAB

    Ed, What is PCA telling you about the GT3 cage?
