Car cover question

I am looking to buy a great cover for my 930 Slant (935 mirrors). I was considering the Coverking Stretch Satin with no mirror pockets sold by Pelican. Does any one here have experience with these? Will it have enough room for the 935 mirrors or will it be too tight?

Thanks!
Jm

I use a 997tt car cover that I already had, fits nicely. Should not be an issue w your mirrors as the side pockets stretch, plus its porsche and available at any dealer about 200$

Why covering such a piece of engineering - in a garage???

FYI, you're adding additional chances of skratcing the paint with the cover, no mentioned moisture... unless you CLEAN the car every time before putting it up; if not, you're just acumulating old dust/dirt/droppings etc on the cover underskin - the surface that touches the car!

Ask me how I know. M2c.

I plan on covering clean. We have lots of polen and dust most of the year, and I have small children, so I will use any and all protection I can afford. =))

oh yeah, no AC in FL will turn it into a garage queen real fast for July and August. I'm in SC and it get's hot here but nothing like FL. My daughters are in Jax and Jul/Aug are miserable there. My A/C is not working at the moment, so when my wife and I go for drives we just make it a windows down and hat day! Did a one day 600 mile drive to the mountains a couple of Saturday's ago, hats and windows!

TT surgeon, I just want to make sure I am getting the correct cover... Is yours the indoor cover for the 997tt Gen 1? Dealer is quoting me $350, so I wanted to make sure I am getting the correct one, since you mentioned that yours was $200. Cost is not a concern, but want to assure myself I am asking for the right one.

thanks again.

As a rule of thumb would you still use an outdoor cover for the car or theres too much humidity and rust problems?

I live in Montreal and even in the summer time it's quite humid.

Was looking at the Stormproof cover from Pelican.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think indoor only indoor, the outdoor might be too heavy and not allow adequate ventilation.

Ok thank you. I think I will only use it after a good wash and very dry weather.
