The Porsche 911 Carrera has an optional addition, a Slide/Tilt Sunroof. This sunroof is absolutely huge, and it delivers an open, airy feel to the Porsche 911 Carrera; a smooth compromise between a convertible and the hardtop. Perhaps the most attractive feature of this sunroof is that it opens outwardly, and thus does not disturb the headroom of the sun-worshipping passengers.
If you live in a particularly hot climate – likely if you’re shopping for Porsche cars in Florida! – a tinted slide/tilt sunroof is an exciting option. Porsche has crafted the sunroof with more resilient glass, which equipped with an electronic sun shade to block particularly harsh rays from the interior. This way, you get the feel of the outdoors (especially appreciated on gloomy days) without the added heat or glare.
Conversely, if you live in a cold climate or travel where the weather is less than balmy, there is no heat lost in the sunroof and you get the benefits of additional vitamin D. It is certainly worth the addition, since the air flow is consistent, without adding the annoying din of having the windows down.
Despite having such a large sunroof, the weight added to the Porsche 911 Carrera is extremely minimal. In fact, the sunroof stereotype of additional weight is a misconception, as it generally does not add more than other optional add-ons.
The Porsche 911 Carrera delivers an unforgettable driving experience. If you are debating whether or not to add a sunroof to your Porsche, just remember that the sportscar feel synonymous with the Porsche name is heightened with a sunroof. Every journey becomes an adventure with a sunroof as you breathe in the sun, the wind, the fresh scent of freedom.
