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.

There’s something about the winter months that makes just about everyone feel tired and sluggish, even if you live in a part of the country that doesn’t deal with snow and ice. Once spring arrives, the need to get out and enjoy the fresh, sweet-smelling air arises. You start to see the roads littered with motorcycles and high end sports cars, like the Porsche 911 Carrera. But how can you make the most of your Porsche this spring?
Fortunately that’s not a hard question to answer! The new Porsche 911 Carrera is, quite simply, a beast. Oh don’t get us wrong, it’s a gorgeous, glorious beast. But it definitely has the heart and soul of a vicious creature, making it easy to find new ways to enjoy the vehicle during the spring months. As soon warmer weather hits, it’s time to bring the Carrera out of the garage. Once it’s been checked over and the fluids topped off, take that baby out on the road!
The best way to not only enjoy the new Porsche but to also keep the vehicle running in tip-top shape is to take it on a nice long drive. Short drives are fantastic but it’s definitely good for the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine to be fully run out, and a nice long drive will allow the engine to get completely clean. Find a long stretch of road, a route that you can stay on for a few hours without having to get off, and go for a drive!
While you likely won’t want to hit the almost 200 mph this engine can put out during your drive, if you have a secure place and a long stretch of road it’s fun to prove that the car can hit 60 mph in around 3 seconds! This spring, take your Porsche 911 Carrera out for a nice, long drive to clean out the engine and enjoy the scenery and knowing how much power you have under the hood. And if you don’t have one, remedy that situation immediately with a trip to your trusted Porsche dealer!
