944 bolt in cage


Recommended Posts

I don't have a cage but if you are making a racecar then go weld in. If it is for a track day car and still has interior then the bolt in is the way to go.


Heres the place to buy one pre-cut and fitted for a 944. Looks to be the best deal and good quality.

If you are located in Calif the Lemons head tech inspector does cages pretty cheap. Can't remember his name right now.


Otherwise the Hankville cage is way better than a bolt in.


Eitherway have fun and good luck.

I know Lemons cars are supposed to be $500 cars. However that does ot include safety gear.


A 944 spec cars costs only about $2k more than Lemons car when you include all the "free stuff" you can do in Lemons. That money goes into suspension (springs, t-bars, swap bars & shocks). Plus a 944 spec car will last for years rather than just one event.

Buy a bolt-in....use it for the Lemons race....then you'll have gotten the bug for more 944 racing....move the cage to a 944Spec car...spend the money you saved on other safety gear like a fire system.


The bolt-in's don't fit as well but I think they are plenty safe if installed right, and you can add reinforcement if you want. I decided to go with Autopower's bolt-in not just because it was the cheapest option, but because replacement cars can be had pretty cheap. I figured if I had something catastrophic happen to the car that didn't affect the cabin, I could transfer the cage to a new tub cheaper than fixing the car or installing a new weld-in cage in a new tub.
