Should I Swap my Vinyl to Glass? Your Questions, Answered

Updating the windows on your 986 Boxster will not only provide a visual improvement but also ease of use and improved longevity. In 2003, when Porsche began designing this whip with glass windows instead of vinyl plastic, they got everyone’s attention. Many car enthusiasts still prefer the vintage models and for good reason – they are classy and offer a vintage feel when compared to their younger sibling.

Thankfully, the convertible top aftermarket has designed something just for you – an option for a glass window upgrade that fits the 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 models. These aftermarket windows have been designed with a smaller window that fits nicely into the top boot. Since the vinyl windows fold to fit into the boot, upgrading to glass requires a smaller window, just as you will see in the newer Boxters. This means the entire soft top will be replaced with this kit, along with the rear window. Other highlights to note:
  • DOT Approved
  • Measurements are 35.5" wide by 12'' tall
  • Tinted minimally to a level that should match the factory front and side windows
  • Includes:
  • Safety Emblems
  • Embedded Defroster Wiring
  • Wire Harness Kit to Connect Your Vehicle's Electrical System

With AutoTops Direct, you can make this switch at a lower cost than you think. All of our Boxster glass window options are under $650 and can be a DIY project – just utilize the detailed instructions complete with pictures that are provided in the installation guide with each purchase.
