Thanks for all the info! I'm changing my plans and budgeting for the OEM roof transport system instead of the Yakima system.You can see the safety strap on the rear cross bar going inside the rear window, just in case. I would highly recommend you use a strap like below to secure your load (tent), as you would be at fault if it came off and hit another car. You may smash your rear window, but your load will still be attached to your car. No gutter attachment or suction cups to worry about, just Porsche roof engineering.
The OEM system is the way to go for sure! The OEM is very sturdy!Thanks for all the info! I'm changing my plans and budgeting for the OEM roof transport system instead of the Yakima system.
Could you elaborate more on how that strap works and where/what it's attached to? It's hard to see what is attached to what using that strap in the image.
Gotcha. Will try to do something about that as I'm sure I won't be able to deal with that for 3000 miles straight. Might just tape it to the headliner out of the way.The strap is a knotted strap tied to the cross and the knotted end is threaded between the door frame and the top of the rear door. You thread the strap with the knot inside the car, then close the rear door. You may have a couple of inches of free strap/knot inside your car. May drive you nuts if it bounces around in the center of your rear mirror view .
Where can I find these? I'm actually not sure what "r-springs" are - are they springs from the Cayman R or an aftermarket part?You may score by getting the R springs used or new and using your old shocks. Make sure all the rubber is good putting it back together. So, higher spring rate, then the wheel spacers to widen your track.
