Sun Shield and Weather Protector (Boxster Spyder)
To protect the car from direct sunlight, wind and light rain, the Boxster Spyder has a sun shield and a removable weather protector. Please note that the sun shield and weather protector are not designed to provide the same level of protection as a convertible top. Drops can form in heavy rain and when driving at high speed in light rain.

The sun shield and weather protector must be removed before using a car wash.

  • Please see the chapter "CAR CARE INSTRUCTIONS" on page 185.

Ripples can appear in the sun shield when the vehicle is driven at high speed, but these disappear after a while.
