Car is a 951. Having trouble locating one that already has the cut out for the rear view mirror, and the one that I did find, appears not to go all the way to the top of the windshield.

My 951 came with a sunscreen from Aviation Covers Inc and the fit and quality are awesome.

Look into solar window tints which you can actually get without a tint while they still stop over 3/4 of the heat and all the UV. Obviously another good thing about them is they also work while you’re driving. I have solar on the front windscreen of one of my street cars and also on my track car here in Florida, happy with the results.

WalMart. The collapsible circles. Easy to stow. Easy to use. Easy to pay. About $8.

After fitting, fold down the sun visors. That's what I do

I have the covercraft one as well and I like it. If you shop around you can find them much cheaper. I payed less than half the price at autogeek on Amazon, but it was only for the green one. I don't care about the color so I got it.. EDIT: NM I think the autogeek link is for qty 2 my bad

Advance Auto used to sell one specifically for our cars, it had to be order from the manufacturer though... might be worth a shot.

Here's an awesome supplier:

https://www.heatshieldstore.com/car-...sche-944-coupe

They make one for the windshield and the rear hatch glass.

If you sign up with your email address, they have 10% off and free shipping with purchase of two items frequently.
And they ship very quickly.
And I have no affiliation with their company other than being a happy customer!

I'm a big fan of ceramic tint and really need to get my 944 done since I have no A/C. Only problem is I can't legally tint the front windscreen here so only the sides and hatch glass can be done (legal max of 30%). Summers here are intense and high UV so I'm disappointed I can't completely enclose my interior.

You can get clear, UV-blocking tint that will cut down on heat transfer into the cabin while not reducing the transmission of visible light.

Unfortunately that is still applying something to the front windscreen, even if clear. Sorry I misled by saying I can't 'tint' the front windscreen. That was one of my first questions when I got my daily wagon done. They wont allow anything applied to the front windscreen except a banner and that is only allowed to come down so far.
