Remotely Close/Open softtop on a 1999 C2 cab.

Recommended Posts

I have the key remote system on my MY2001 cab. From there I can open the front luggage compartment and open/close the convertible top........plus open/close the car ;-)

My guess would be that you would just need a new set of keys and then they need to hook up their computer to the car to enable the option.

I've heard that oversea, it was possible to remotely open and close the convertible top of the 996 series with the key remote. Is this upgrade possible for a canadian 996 c2 1999 ? Does anyone know the parts that is involved ?



Hello Bo,

Yes you heard right, in Europe all newer 996 cabrios have a key remote which allows you to open the trunk, open/close the doors AND open/close the roof. The oder ones allow you to open/close the doors and the roof.

Unfortunately Porsche does not offer this convenient feature on any cars exported to the American continent - the reasons everyone can think of himself :)

If people would finally stop sueing each other and car companies for *@#%^$ they produced themselves!

Right now we are planning to integrate a remote control feature into our smartTOP 996 units or offer it as an extra module, so it can be easily added in the usual "plug and play" manner known from our smartTOP products.
