Hi fellow Porsche drivers

I’m looking for a bit of advice can anybody recommend a good outdoor waterproof and breathable car cover. I already have an outdoor car cover from a reputable supplier in fact in the last 15 years I have purchased six from them. I acquired my first Porsche early last year and dutifully purchased one for the 997. However, I’ve noticed that when it rains the car gets covered with a very thin film of water all over it so got to say on less than impressed with it so I was wondering if anyone out there uses one that the really happy with. Many thanks in advance
James…K

I think they all do that due to condensation, but could be wrong. Mine does anyway.

If you don’t have space indoors to store the car but have driveway space then I can recommend (very highly) the outdoor Carcoon cover in large size which has been awesome for my 997 so far.

This won’t help if Classic Additions are the make of the hoods you already have, but if not, then they may be worth a look. The specialist dealer and also specialist workshop where I buy and service my cars recently recommended them to me for an indoor hood, but they both use the outdoor version and both rate them.
