Convertible Top and Convertible Top Parts

About These Tops:

These convertible tops are made by Robbins and carry their 6 year factory warranty with 18 month labor allowance. The glass window version carries a Limited Lifetime warranty on the rear window bonding.

The original convertible top fabric was A5 German Sonnenland canvas. We also offer other canvas fabric convertible tops. The original top had a light green tinted rear plastic window. A defroster glass rear window version is also offered (a low profile window.) The plastic window top has blind stitch French deck seams, and original style side tension cables
. A Zipper around rear window zips to OEM headliner. In the glass window convertible top a zipper panel around the rear window (matching dimensions of old plastic window) zips to original headliner. Wiring for defroster is included.

Note to 1999 owners: The last digits of your VIN 3 should be XS654806 or higher.

The tops will fit all left and right hand drive cars.

Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black and Dark Blue

Our Porsche Cabrio tops are made by Germanex of Santa Monica, a specialist in German tops and interiors. There is no more finely made Porsche top.

The top is as original with the green plastic window.

Germanex emphatically urges that customers insist on original "A-5 sonnenland canvas." Alternative fabrics will not hold up as well. the original fabric has superior tensile strength and will resist sagging that will occur prematurely in alternative canvases.

Late 2001 tops may have glass windows. These later Carreras take a different top. We do not yet have the glass rear window tops.

Our 1999-2001 tops will zip into your existing headliner (which will likely be re-usable.) in the event that you want a new headliner, the extrusions must be transferred out of the current headliner. We can do this for you but you would have to ship out the headliner with everything intact for us to have the extrusions properly transferred to a new headliner.

CONVERTIBLE TOP FABRICS
Almost all manufacturers use Haartz fabrics. They may specify "heaviest weight" or "original replacement" in ways that seem reassuring. But they do not really tell the whole story. Please bear in mind that two things dominate, by far, the quality issue: (a) the manufacturing quality control in the factory that makes the top and (b) the care and thoroughness of the installation. There is a trade-off in weight: heavier is better for resisting tear through, but lighter is better for flexibility and abrasion from within that may arise from movement. Almost all our tops are a flexible medium density (36 oz.) fabric. Heavier is not better in most cases. Where it is, because of the top design, we will say so and the top will be made of the heavier vinyl.


Parts in this category (Porsche 911 (996) Cabriolet) fit cars for years: 1999, 2000 and 2001.
