Anyone have pictures of the underside of a 997.1?

Recommended Posts

hi, anybody have a few underside pictures of 997.1 with protection panels mounted?

My garage ramp is quite steep, and I am trying to understand/have a clear picture of how the car is done "from below" :-)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ciao

The underside of the car is nearly smooth as the diagram PAULSPEED sent shows. The only protruding parts under the car are the front spoiler under the bumper about 5 inches back from, the two spoilers that extend downward from the bottom of the front wheel wells and similar spoilers located on the fromt of the rear wheel wells. If you are scraping it would have to be one of the items I have listed which are easy to see. I suspect it is the front spoiler that you are scraping on the drive ramp. Good news it is easy and cheap to replace and I believe it was meant ot be a sacrificial part given how easy it is to scrape it when going over or up even a slight incline.

Go to Rennlist and their 997 forum and do a search. I posted some shots of my 997 in the air around 2007.

I have seen shops with built in ramps that use lumber to ease the entry angle into the lift. 2 x 12's are cheap. You can't overcome the laws of geometry.

Wondering why I just got only now the email informing me that I have answers...

Anyway...

Unfortunately since I'm living in a condo there is nothing I can do with ramps.

The only way I found to get into my garage without cracking noises is backing.

In this way it works!

Coming in/out at an angle (ie. 45 degrees) might help if you have room to do that.

I use two 2 by 6 by 6-0 long boards to get my

car into the garage. Yes they have cracked

some what.

Good luck.
