2003 Boxster Used Top


Recommended Posts

Seems strange

The 2003 top uses different mounting hardware so the norm is to acquire the top already installed on the top raising mechanism. You'll go broke buying the needed parts from Porsche.

Now why would he pull a perfectly good top from the top mechanism?

I thought that you could replace these tops while retaining the mechanism on the car?

If you look at his other auctions it leads me to believe that he is an 'auto recycler', maybe he plans to sell the rest of the car a bit at a time... :P

I agree with the question but I thing there are several reasons. The canvas is cheaper to ship and you can sometimes get more money for two parts! Maybe the top was even cracked or damaged w/o doing in the canvas.

As long as it's the right year replacing the whole top and frame can take less then a 1/2 hour while just putting on canvas can take 8-10 hours!

WOW! :o

My comment could be a bit misleading as you are correct, you can put canvas on the car with the frame still on the vehicle. But if you happen to have the correct frame/top off a donor car the entire frame is 4 bolts and an the transmissions arms and you are done. It's silly easy.
