Danger of damage at the convertible top.

  • After emergency operation, do not operate the convertible top with the rocker switch.
  • Drive slowly to an authorized Porsche dealer in order to have the fault remedied.


Hardtop (Boxster, Boxster S)
Since the convertible top stays open for a long time, it must be absolutely dry and clean before being opened.

This prevents damp stains and abrasion damage. Your autorized Porsche dealer will be pleased to advise you about correct hardtop storage.

Information
The inserts for locking of the pivot locks are not installed on vehicles delivered without a hardtop. It is essential to have the necessary parts retrofitted by an authorized Porsche dealer before a hardtop is fitted for the first time.
