Why do I need a Porsche Boxster Car Cover?

Your Porsche Boxster’s biggest enemies are the UV from the sun, tree sap, animal deposits (especially those seagulls), and other environmental factors (acid rain.)

The Dreaded Seagull

It is important to realize that car covers keep your paint from fading or scratching. UV Light can impact your interior and cause discoloring, cracking, and convertible tops from disintegrating. A car cover will also protect your car from getting dirty and wet during rainy and snowy seasons.

Another key point is that a car cover acts as a deterrent and keeps your vehicle safe from car thieves by keeping the contents inside your Boxster out of plain sight. The extra time required to remove your car cover makes a big difference. The time required to remove the car cover increases the chances of a thief getting caught or seen. Car theft is a crime of convenience and opportunity. Ultimately, a covered car is a lesser target than other vehicles without car covers.

What is the difference between a universal-fit car cover and a custom-fit car cover?

There are many universal, and ill-fitting car covers available at lower prices. Many universal covers are made with inferior fabrics that quickly deteriorate, and don’t fit your vehicle correctly. Ill-fitting car covers can blow away with the wind or rub against your paint finish.

Custom-fitted car covers are made specifically for your Porsche Boxster Model. This ensures that your car cover provides maximum coverage and protection for your car. The custom-fitted car cover will snuggly fit on your car cover and not blow off. Your car paint finish will not mar by the movement or play of the car cover. An excellent-fitting car cover just looks better.

Do I need a Porsche Boxster Car Cover if I park my car indoors?

Yes! 

Firstly, the primary enemy of your Porsche Boxster is DUST! A good car cover will keep your convertible canvas top clean. As a result, this prevents dust from collecting in the fabric which causes premature aging and wear. Dust in your Boxster’s canvas convertible top will act like sandpaper and is the fundamental cause of premature wear.

You need to keep your canvas top clean at all times. You need to learn the correct methods for Porsche Convertible Top Cleaning & Conditioning. A good car cover goes a long way to preserve your convertible top, by reducing dust collecting on your car.

Using a car cover will keep your vehicle cleaner and save you a lot of time and money. No matter where you live, your car will get very dusty without a car cover, even in your garage. 

The worst case for dust is underground garages in large condominium complexes.

For indoor use, you need a good car cover, both an outdoor or indoor car cover will do. But the indoor car cover is lighter and packs away much smaller (conveniently) for storage and quick access.

Do I need a car cover if I park my car outdoors?

Yes!

Prolonged sun exposure and UV light will damage your vehicle’s paint, seats, and dash more than virtually any other element. In order to preserve the value and condition of your Porsche Boxster, it is critical to use a car cover.

You need to protect your Boxster from the elements that it will encounter being parked or stored outdoors. You must cover up your car if you are planning on not using it for long periods of time.

For outdoor use, you need a good outdoor-rated car cover. It is not advisable to use an indoor car cover outdoors.

What is the Difference Between an Indoor and Outdoor Car Cover?

If you store your car inside a garage 100% of the time, you are going to want to buy an indoor car cover. An indoor car cover is soft, small, and light. It will pamper your car’s finish and protect your convertible top from dust and your interior from prying eyes. An indoor car cover is deployed in seconds and easily packs away in your trunk or on a shelf.

If your car sits outdoors for periods of time, you are going to want to buy an outdoor car cover. Outdoor car cover fabrics protect your Boxster against harsh elements. Outdoor car cover fabrics are designed to be waterproof and protect your car from snow, tree sap, and bird droppings. They are made to hold up for extended periods in the sun. Over time, UV rays cause the most damage to your vehicle.

Outdoor car covers are heavier and thicker than indoor car covers. Storage of outdoor car covers is in a large hockey/football gear “like” size bag. You cannot store an outdoor car cover in your Porsche Boxster.

Do not store a Porsche Boxster outdoors for periods of time without a good outdoor car cover.

Can a Waterproof Car Cover do Harm to my Car?

Outdoor car covers need to be lined with a soft breathable material. This is so that the cover does not scratch your paint. You want a cover made of a material that is waterproof, yet can breathe to prevent moisture or mildew buildup.

When looking for a car cover, you want to ensure the cover fabric is breathable and allows moisture to evaporate through the fabric. This will ensure your paint’s protection. You want an outdoor cover that is “water-resistant” and breathable, not “waterproof” per se.

A fully waterproof cover can be detrimental to your paint job.

Conclusion

Take the time to research and choose one of the Best Porsche Boxster Car Covers for your car. It will make a difference and contribute to the longevity of your amazing car.
