From 2005 to 2012, German manufacturer Porsche produced the second generation 987 Boxster. These vehicles were an improvement upon the first generation Boxster in that they offered greater space in the cabin, technological updates to the vehicles suspension system and improved aerodynamics. These compact sports cars delivered high performance and an enjoyable ride. For this reason, many Porsche 987 owners have taken great pains to care for their vehicles, which is why so many are found on highways today. Though, the Porsche 987 is fundamentally sound, some drivers complain of issues with their cars.
Several Boxster 987 owners have found that the while the experience of cruising around with the convertible top down is exhilarating, the rattling of the wind deflector is downright unnerving. They describe the rattling as constant and loud enough to be clearly heard over the wind noise. Over time, the issue may worsen if left unaddressed, to the point that the constant buffeting causes permanent damage when the deflector attaches to the mount.
