Porsche Boxster Porsche Cayman
Rack Technical Details
The Bird Automotive Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman Rack is installed in the provided Receiver Pipes. The two Pipes serve as receivers for all versions of the Rack in a manner similar to trailer hitch racks seen on SUV's. They are 1 1/4" diameter, painted black and are intentionally inconspicuous. Nearly invisible without bending over to look, they are located to the left and right of the factory tailpipes, recessed behind the Bumper and tailpipes. The Boxster and Cayman Bicycle Racks carry one, two or three bikes. Golf Bag Carrier, Luggage Rack, Ski Rack and Snowboard Rack Options are available. When not in use, the Rack is easily removed in a couple of minutes and can be stored in the front trunk/boot. Snow Racks and Golf/Luggage Racks can also be stored in the trunk, requiring a few more minutes. No tools are required to prepare the racks for trunk storage.
Installation/Fitment of the Receiver Pipes requires removal and re installation of four bolts under the Boxster or Cayman which are located to the rear of the engine. Accomplished in under an hour by anyone of average mechanical ability, installation requires no special hand tools or modifications to the car. Because the car is so low, the rear must be raised at least 4" 10cm to access the four bolts. Ramps, jack stands, or a professional lift are required. Using the factory jack is not an option. Thorough illustrated instructions are provided; about half our customers install themselves. If assistance is needed, we can help locater a qualified installer/fitter.
Assembly of the removal portion of the rack requires about an hour and can be done in any location. We encourage customers to do this portion themselves to better understand exactly how the rack works. Once completed, the rack goes on or off the car in a couple of minutes.
