If a pit crew communicating with the driver the there would have been a corresponding cabin connection/plugin for any headset or helmet, no? I guess the only way to find some clues would be to remove the rear roof panel under the antenna and check for any routed cabling. As the front windscreen does not have any radio antenna set in the glass I can only assume the radio uses the roof antenna, and the short stubby style was simply a Porsche cosmetic option at the time of ordering(?)

There you go. Seems as though hole-less 968 roofs exist.

The motorsport antenna system would not have been available to the public. It would have only been available through the motorsport department. Calling it "factory" is a stretch - each motorsport order would have likely been custom configured to the team, regarding the antenna style and setup.

Generally (in this era), an antenna was only installed for endurance racing. Otherwise it was left out.

Good to know - makes it clearer.

Good luck with your search! Great to see that there is more than one CS originating from Belgian on here. Is it a later ('94 or '95) model?

I had one of these clubsport shelves that I used for several years then sold on.

Frenchtoast's information is correct, it uses brackets from the ends of the shelf to the outer seatbelt receiver mounting points, but it also has provision for a centre bracket to the leading edge of the cargo floor. My shelf didn't come with this centre bracket and my car didn't have a point for the bracket to mount to on my car. With just the outer brackets the shelf wasn't very secure and moved around a bit so I wasn't comfortable with putting decent weight on it.
