PostPosted: Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:28 pm    Post subject: Roof rails or bars or racks? Reply with quote

Hi All,

I’ve just been informed by my local Porsche centre that the 992 has no provision to add a set of roof bars/rails and therefore can’t accept a roof box?

So, onto my question: Is this really true ie. no bike, skis, snowboards or extra luggage? Doesn’t sound plausible to me.

Do any of you guys know of anyone with roof bars on a 992 or even better, some pics of them fitted?
Tequipment don’t seem to offer them and I’ve put out a few enquiries to suppliers but no responses yet 😬

As a bonus question - do the rails (if available!) get in the way of the sunroof? 😎

Hope you can help!

For bikes I would recommend these. Will fit any car. I've use mine on two 991's, the wife's Evoque, my parents Kuga. I attach mine to my glass sunroof and have had no issues at 'moderate' speeds! Cool

Not sure if they can be used for other accessories as well.

Seems a better investment to me rather than buying a car specific solution! Thumb

I second seasucker’s.
I’ve used them *ahem* up to motorway speeds and they are rock solid. Have carried two bikes down to Cornwall and back with no issues.
They lack any security but are great otherwise.

Thanks for the heads-up on Seasucker - I’ve never heard of them but look like a good plan-b!

I do prefer proper fitted ones though Smile

The SS looks like something I can just keep in the back of the car just in case I guess!

Many thanks for the replies guys Smile
