Roof Rack for 996/997

Recommended Posts

I’ve done my research looking for an inexpensive roof rack system. I just cannot bring myself to purchase a Porsche roof transport system for what they want. From my experience you have to do your own research. I checked with the official Thule, Rhino, Yakima, rackwarehouse, Amazon sites, and no one really took the time to help out. So I found a Rhino Rack Camper Shell Roof Rack (54 inch wide) at AutoAnything for $328.00. I wll have to, I guess, spring for the Porsche spungy paint protectors called foam gaskets. I plan on using the bars to carry a road bike. In the nine (9) years I’ve had my 99 Boxster I've had use my wife’s Toyota to transport my bikes.


I am converting over to my 2000 C4 as my new daily driver. My 312,000 mile 99 Boxster is Non-Mission Capable due to my inadvertent backing into a tree next to my driveway earlier this week. I already received my replacement right rear tail light and I ordered a 2003 rear bumper cover to replace the dented original bumper cover. And today my renewed registration came in the mail. All I need to do is pick up the bumper cover, replace the tail light and get the car painted.  It came from the factory with Black Metallic paint, but the right side clear coat is all but gone. So I thinking I would get a super cheap MACCO black metallic repaint or go for a MACCO color change to Sapphire Blue Metallic or Miami Blue or Lava Orange (all true Porsche 911 colors from prior years). I am really fond of the Sapphire Blue Metallic. Etc.
