Roof Transport System

Transporting objects on the roof

A roof transport system can be fitted on the vehicle for transporting bulky objects.

Various objects can be transported safely and securely using the roof transport system and additional attachments, e.g. ski rack, bicycle rack, surfboard rack, roof box or snowboard holder.

  • Only use roof transport systems that have been tested and approved by Porsche. It is not possible to fit commercially available roof rack systems.

For more information on the roof transport system:

  • Contact an authorized Porsche dealer.

Unsecured or incorrectly secured roof transport system or individual load-carrying devices
An unsecured or incorrectly secured roof transport system can become detached from the vehicle while driving and cause serious accidents.

  • Install individual load-carrying devices, such as ski rack or roof box as centrally as possible with respect to the supports.
  • Check the roof transport system and load-carrying devices before every journey and at regular intervals during longer journeys to ensure that they are fitted correctly and securely.
  • Tighten all fastening screws again.

Changed handling when the roof transport system is fitted and loaded
Vehicle handling is different when the roof transport system is fitted and loaded (higher center of gravity and greater wind resistance).

  • Adjust your driving style accordingly. e Do not drive at speeds exceeding 80 mph (130 km/h) when the roof transport system is fitted and loaded.
  • Do not drive at a speed of more than 110 mph (180 km/h) when the roof transport system is fitted but not loaded.
  • Load the roof transport system so that the load does not protrude over the sides of the roof transport system. Never load the roof transport system wider than the width of the vehicle.
  • Position the center of gravity of the load as low as possible with respect to the roof transport system and distribute the load evenly over the load area.

Unsecured or incorrectly secured loads
An unsecured or incorrectly secured load can become detached from the roof transport system while driving and cause serious accidents.

  • Secure the load so that it will not move during the journey.
  • Do not use elastic rubber tensioners.
  • Position the center of gravity of the load as low as possible with respect to the roof transport system and distribute the load evenly over the load area.


Damage to the roof or the load, if the roof system is opened or lifted when a roof transport system is mounted.

  • Do not open or lift the roof system when a roof transport system is fitted.


Washing the vehicle in a car wash or failure to observe the overall vehicle height or the maximum permitted gross weight can damage the vehicle or roof transport system.

  • Remove the complete roof transport system before washing the vehicle in a car wash.
  • Check the overall vehicle height with the roof transport system fitted before driving through height-restricted entrances (e.g multi-storey car parks).
  • Do not exceed the maximum roof load, maximum vehicle weight and maximum axle loads.
  1. Please see chapter “Weights” on page 390.
  • Do not exceed the maximum permitted roof transport system load.

Information

  • If you are not using the roof transport system, remove it completely from the vehicle in order to save fuel and reduce noise.
