    Help with question about 996 Cabs...

    Having discussion with a friend, and i told him that the the 1st cabs to come out with roofs that would go up/down while moving (30mph) were the 996 C4S and TT Cabs...this was due to the fact that they have more strengthening in them than the narrow body cars...

    He says that this also came as satandard on some of the later facelifted 996 Cabs's...if which i don't agree..

    Can anybody find any reports to prove or deny this please ???


    Thanks for your help

    Well, I was just trying to get the message across to you gently.

    I don't know introduction dates, but I'm pretty sure all Cab versions of 911 went across to the new roof operating system within a short period.

    Oooooops! Must have been quite a large bet.

    Anybody out there know the dates?

    Re: Help with question about 996 Cabs...

    From MY2003 on the 996 Cab roofs could go down while driving less than 50 km/h.

    Re: Help with question about 996 Cabs...

    Indeed, a friend has a 996 C4 cab from 2004 and roof definitely goes down while driving up to 50ish

    Re: Help with question about 996 Cabs...

    Oh bugger, that's me done then


    G.

    Re: Help with question about 996 Cabs...

    My 03 C4 cab does it indeed. Sorry you lost.
