SMARTtop & REMOTEtop Porsche 996

SMARTTOP for Porsche 996 Carrera Cabriolet
SMARTTOP-for 996 Carrera Cabriolet
Retrofit your your 996 Carrera Cabriolet with Carrera 997 Cab Roof Control

The SMARTTOP roof control unit allows opening or closing of the convertible top while driving at slow speeds. It works like a window lift and opens or closes the roof automatically at the touch of a button. With the SMARTTOP roof module it is no longer necessary to stop the vehicle and pull the handbrake to allow roof operations.

With SMARTTOP 996 You can operate the roof while driving at slow speeds max. 30mph (50km/h). A short push on the "Open" button opens up the roof completely. A short push on the "Close" button closes the roof completely. Pushing either button while the top is moving stops operation at once.

Manual operation: pushing one button for a longer time only moves the roof as long as this button is held. In case the roof is not in one of the mechanical end stop positions it can, for safety reasons, only be operated the aforementioned manual way. When it reaches an end stop position the comfort function is reactivated again. At higher speeds exceeding the allowed maximum the roof stays in a locked state if it was in a mechanical end stop position.

Operating the roof control while at a stop: for safety reasons the one-touch function is deactivated as long as the vehicle is not moving at all. Thus it can not be triggered accidentally while a person might be at risk. The roof can be operated the normal way in pushing and holding one button. If the driver is really sure that no one could jam the roof operation, the one-touch function can be activated on a per-use basis with a combination of key presses: if the roof is fully closed, press and hold the close button for about 3 sec, then touch the open button for comfort opening of the roof. If the roof is fully opened, press and hold the open button for about 3 sec, then touch the close button for comfort closing of the roof.

Traffic lights and parking: the comfort function stays active for about 8 seconds when stopping the vehicle. This enables you to start a roof operation while waiting on a red light or on your garage door to open.

Easy Installation: Fits all Carrera 996 cabriolets 1998-2004. Simply replace the original unit in the corresponding socket in the fuse box. Plug and Play: very easy to install for anyone in 1-2 Minutes. No professional help needed.

NEVER operate the roof with the key if someone could be endangered! Take notice of our safety advices. You are solely responsible for any damages or injuries.


RemoteTOP for Porsche 996 Carrera & 986 Boxster
RemoteTOP for 996 Porsche Carrera

Product Features: The remoteTOP controller will give you a lot of extra comfort in and around your Porsche. The original idea was to give the U.S. 996 convertibles the ability to operate the soft-top via the factory-supplied key remote in the same way that the Euro models do. The end result completely overshoots this goal by adding seveal other features into this small but versatile controller.

In short, you will have these new features, once the product is installed:

996 Cab: Operate the soft-top with your original factory-supplied remote-key(s), no reprogramming of the key(s) or the car necessary. A Selectable One-Touch operation will, once started, complete the soft-top cycle automatically by itself.

996 Coupe: Operate the windows (and sunroof on 996 Coupe) with the original factory-supplied remote-key(s), no reprogramming of the key(s) or the car necessary. A Selectable One-Touch operation will, once started, close the windows (and sunroof) or open the windows automatically by itself.

996 Cab: Selectable "Always-Arm" Mode, which will enable the passenger cabin ultra-sound motion detector alarm when the soft-top is OPEN.

All vehicles: Selectable Lock-In feature locks the doors once you start the vehicle or start moving. In contrast to the original Porsche Lock-In feature which can only be enabled or disabled at the dealership, our controller lets you decide if you want that feature, and even better, it also UNLOCKS the doors when you switch the engine off. A detail the Porsche engineers seemingly forgot.

All vehicles: Comfort window control allows you to use the electric windows for 15 more minutes after you turn the ignition off. Also enables window control after you have unlocked your car with the remote control. This allows you to sit inside and IMMEDIATELY use the power-windows, no need to put the key into ignition first.

Bonus Feature: Audible feedback ("chirps") using the alarm horn when locking/unlocking the car by remote. (For technical reasons this feature is not guaranteed to work on all models / model years).

All functions of this module can be adjusted according to the user's needs:

Function 1 - Workshop/Diagnose mode. Makes the module invisible to diagnostic tools.

Function 2 - Manual or One-Touch control of the softtop by remote.

Function 3 - Arm passenger cabin motion sensors with top down.

Function 4 - Lock and unlock doors automatically.

Function 5 - Audible signal when locking/unlocking (BONUS FEATURE).
