I got one for my 981 GTS and kept it for the GT4.

It fits great, even over the spoiler! So yes Thumb

That explains why the cover I’m looking at as 981 044 000 00. So there must must be a difference, although if it fits s GT4 with that wing you’d have thought the Spyder would be ok.

Compared to the regular 981, the Spyder is a little longer and the bumpers / roof line / mirrors / rear spoiler are a slightly different shape, so I think it would be the safer option.

But as you say. if it fits a GT4... Dont know

£225, plus 10% off too if you quote your PCGB membership number thumbsup

Have had the car for 6 months now and really enjoyed it. Feels special every time I drive it, and puts a proper grin on my face. Not going to be using it much over winter as its not a daily so tucked away now for a few months. The ground clearance is not good, and with bumpy roads I have found that I'm scraping the front lip even just reversing out of my drive. I view it as a consumable though which can be replaced when necessary. Do you have a Spyder? What are your thoughts?

Hi and yes. Only had her since September - I drove a GTS for three years before making the change. It is better than I ever imagined really, with only a few minor compromises. Probably most surprising is the improvement in handling, grip, steering feel and braking. And what to say about the 3.8 lump? I guess if they'd made this a standard option, then it would have robbed 911 sales? Well, maybe! So far I've not braved any multi-story car-parks, but speed cushions are fine and I'm lucky enough to have a very flat exit from garage to the road, so no issues there. As to the looks, well in my mind it is the most beautiful all round car that they made three years ago. Ok the front bumper on a GTS is actually prettier - the Spyder has a kind of junior GT look which is fine - but the rear deck / wing / etc are just sublime. I'm also rather taken by the wheels, though they look very easy to damage as the edges stick out more than on the GTS, owing to the slightly wider rims. Strangely they have 982 part numbers, so I'm guessing they are used in a current model as well.

definitely weekend fun. I think it would be fine as a daily, just as long as no ramps! This site is too much of a headache to load pics to, sorry!

Your car is fabulous. The best looking car Porsche has made in recent years.
Is this your first 981?
