Also, do I have to buy a Porsche brand rack or will Yakima or Thule work? Ive done an extensive search on this topic and I think I have to buy the Porsche brand.
Thanks for the help,
So I'm talking about back when they were new.
I had a 4S that I did a lot of stuff with.
Bought the Porsche rack system. GF at the time had a VW bug with a rack and a bike mount. It turned out that from that era the VW and Porsche attachments for the rails were the same. It's a funky flat square with a bolt you tighten down on. I used all sorts of stuff - bikes, boards, box and they interchanged.
VW and Porsche prices were not the same for the same kit.
