Griot's will sell you a specific fit cover (expensive).
Discount auto, PEP BOYS, AUTO ZONE, etc. will sell you an extra small or small (cheap).
CA Custom Cover will sell specific too.

Thanks Dan! I’m assuming extra small for the spyder?

California Car Covers has a template for the Spyder. It fits like a glove. But not like OJ's glove, this one fits!

I got the Noah fabric and it works great for dust and dirt in the garage or if I overnight at a hotel.

A Miata-size cover is close, but still too big.

Think I got the extra small for the Spyder and a small for a 911. They're cheap but do the dust/dirt job. The Spyder cover will also fit the car with roll bar installed.

California Car Covers is a perfect fit.

I think I called them to discuss what they had since i couldn't find it on their website. They knew the car, made a cover and said it would fit. It fits over a GT mirror (no pocket like some Cal covers have). I think they make many covers "on demand", so it's readily available.
