    fully automated hood

    I would like to know if there is a possibility to install on the 987/987S a fully automated system for the hood - alike the one used for the 997/997S cabrios - to be able to open and close it just by using the key remote.

    I don't understand why it is not a standard equipment, as the system exists for the 911... At least, Porsche should propose it as an option, like Mercedes for the SLK...

    I really don't have a problem with the arrangement as is. You unlock the car by remote, open the door, sit in, put key in ignition turn on, unclip roof and press the tit. The whole operation must take all of 30 seconds. If you are in that much of a rush, drive off with the roof up, keep under 30 mph and drop the roof whilst driving. I believe it takes 12 seconds. Where's the fire?

    haha yea..

    for me i would leave the hood until i am on the main road..

    I prefer opening and closing the top while driving simply because it's awkward to keep the finger on the button the whole time while standing. Wish the one-touch operation would work for standstill mode as well.

    Re: fully automated hood

    It's probably done that way for safety reasons, so no digits and other body parts get trapped in the mechanism. It also frees both hands for driving for safety when on the move. All part of having to protect people from themselves. It's the same if you manually extend the rear spoiler, it goes up with one touch, but you have to keep finger on tit when retracting.

    Re: fully automated hood

    It is not a question of being in a rush (12 seconds is really not so much... and I even can open the roof while driving) but I would like it very much to open the hood while walking to the car. IMHO it would be especially interesting in summer by high temperatures to refresh the inside of the car before going in. It would also be interesting when you park very close to another car and when you can open the door only by a very narrow angle...

    I think it has something to do with the roof mechanism and the short travel way.
    I'm very disappointed too, my wife almost broke a fingernail when she tried to open the roof.
    Of course one can get used to it but I still wonder why they installed such a dumb way to open the roof on a premium roadster.
