Engine Protection Plate


Recommended Posts

Has any one used these? Apparently there is an aluminum one from Porsche, and one or two aftermarket ones. Mine will be a dual purpose car for a couple of years, DD and about 6 DE weekends per year. Other than some more weight at the wrong end, any downside to using these?

I had one put on by the dealer when I had the ROW M030 sport suspension installed, as the car was lowered 20 mm front and 10 mm at the back.

This protection plate weighs something like 1 - 2 lbs, but serves to protect the bottom side of the engine (bolts, etc.) from catching on anything. Plate gets sacrificed before engine does. IMHO it's a small price to pay for peace of mind (especially given that the dealer had just repaired another Carrera after it had the bottom of its engine ripped off by an obstacle - and that car wasn't even lowered!

Such a factory option engine protection plate is available for the 'flat bottom', regular 996 engine. I am not aware of any such plate for the GT3/Turbo/GT2 motor. If it is, what is the part number?

I don't know if there is a different one for the GT3 engine or if the same plate works for both engines. I'm trying to learn more about these plates. Any info will be appreciated.
