986/996/987/997 items

- emergency spare wheel/tire that will fit all 996/986/987/997's. I kept it in the "frunk" for my 987.1, 997.2 and 987.2. It's never been used. Tire is old, definitely from a 986/996 but it's never been used. I might have mounted it once for a test fit. Diameter is a touch small, but close enough to be able to mount it up front. If you have a rear flat, you move a front to the rear and put this on the front. The 981/991 have another inch added to the diameter so it definitely does not fit. No longer for sale.

- colored wheel crests. If your car doesn't have this option, this tiny bit of bling does set it off nicely. $80

- 987 specific sunshade. I suspect it'll fit 986's. It definitely doesn't fit the bigger windshield of the 981. Gone.

- tow hook license plate holder. Slight crack in the plastic though still perfectly functional as the plate adds structure as well. Free to whoever wants it. Yes, 981/991 tow threads are different. Gone.

I'd like the sunshade and the tow hook plate holder. Paypal?

FWIW, I have a set of black floor mats and clear side marker lights available if anyone wants them -- both are OEM should fit any 987 or 997.

The black mats were what I used (my car had a special order interior with matching tan mats that I was scared of ruining -- but I put the originals back in when I sold…)

Jv takes the sunshade & the tow hook plate that I'm sure he'll get back into better shape.

I'd love to but cannot spend $1G. What did you do? Do you have one for the 991S? Is that car going off-lease soon?

I own the 911 and it just passed 4 yrs old so I coughed up ridiculous money (around $5k) and bought the extended warranty, yesterday the car hit 11k miles ...

As far as the spare I have one for the 911 ... I think I paid around $1k for it second hand ... Suncoast sells it for $1450 plus shipping so I think the price I paid was pretty decent ...

Once I had gotten a flat in the Porsche that went from full to empty in a few minutes and got lucky I was near a relatives house so after that it kind of worried me into getting one. Here is a link I posted on 6speedonline with pics of it on the car (post#35) ... Pretty ugly

Btw I did have the spare for the 997 that I think was the same one you're selling.

Wait, let me understand this... Do you think a spare from a 996 turbo can work on a 981/991? If so, I should keep mine. I thought it would be way too short, even for the front. Just measured it, comes out to 25". Calculation of 105/90-17 yields 24.5".

The 981/991 front is 26.5". Or do you have the collapsible one?

Your 185/60-17 spare comes out to 25.7" in diameter, so I guess that's close enough to the front size. I still wouldn't put it on the rear, you'll need to move a front tire to the back, just as I would have had to if I'd ever used the 986/996 spare on the 987/997.

Of course, by carrying the spare, I guaranteed myself out of a flat.

Mine is collapsible, I did a test run on it and it worked well without setting off any nannies ... I'm not sure of the measurements but if one day you want to drive over to Long Island we can give it a test fit and drive on your car.

I remember trying to put the spare on the 991 from the 997 I had and when I tightened the lugs the wheel would not spin at all ... Pretty sure it was up against the calipers if I remember correctly.
