Windstop centre piece

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure the windstop is worth the money ($300+) or the effort to build one. I find that it is probably an unnecessary accessory. Usually I forget to put the thing on and I don't much notice the difference. I haven't been over about 70 mph with the top down so I can't judge it effectiveness at higher speeds, but I have my doubts.

TP: Thx for the pic. I will give this a try when I get my Boxster back from the workshop.

Dannov: I've been thinking about it for a while.... travelling at 100k/h the wind is certainly pretty ghastly. My girlfriend has kindly requested a windstop. :)

Maybe I will just stick a piece of card board in between the roll bars to test it out first....

Porsche Australia wants ~$800AUD for the windstop set.

I find that the black mesh screens that fit within the roll hoops do more to eliminate those nagging little crosswinds on the neck than the clear plastic center section. Rather than the cardboard test(blocking your view), you might just stretch some nylon hose over the roll hoops and see how you like that.

With the windscreens installed, top down wind fury only increases slightly as speed increases past 100kph. The difference between 100kph and 200kph is small enough not to be a concern. Driving without the windscreens, or rolling windows down at 200kph leads to major wind buffeting and reduced speed.
