Interchangeability of 930 sunroof roof's
 
I need a sunroof roof for an 87 930 and was wondering if of you know which year would be very very close to the same.

I found a guy from the Hershey Swap meet that buys parts cars all the time.

I had a real problem with a 68 911 sunroof replacement in the 80's during restoration.

I want to get the newest roof I can and wanted to check with you first. Maybe up to the end of the C2?

I bought a fixer 87 930S factory slant that I want to save. The body and the rest of the car is in really good shape but the roof has some damage.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I believe the vents above the rear window is deleted on the C2/C4 models, and I believe the front window uses another seal. I am not sure, it was too long ago, so please verify before you take my advice for truth.... :-)

I had the same issue a few years back, and ended up with a Carrera roof since they are readily accessible.


Regards,

Johan

Thanks Johan.

I can't remember what year the aluminum color slide rails ended and the black started. I am thinking 1986 but know the Carrera's started late 83 for 1984 model in the US.

If you need the full roof, then I can't help. But if it's the full sunroof cassette you're looking for I have the one I cut out of my'86. Needed to remove to properly weld a roll cage that a cage builder didn't properly weld, and replaced the roof skin with a fiberglass skin.

Here's a pic of the roof:

Thanks Ed. I found a guy in PA with a bunch of complete roof's real cheap. I just want to make sure and buy the right one because of shipping and I won't be driving back over there until April during the Hershey meet.

What color are your sliding rails if you don't mind me asking?

That is a nice panel you have there Ed.

Don't know, I'd have to look. I've got the sunroof stored in my trailer which is 20 miles from here. I can check it out late tomorrow. But it's from my June'86 build 911, and was a perfectly functioning roof when I pulled it out. Was really hard to make that first cut.

Still looking for information on what year sunroof roofs would be the same as an 87 with the black sunroof rails, motor mount etc.

Thanks.
