The only noticeable heat comes from the rear exterior ports just below the tailgate.

You mean yours hadn't rusted through by winter? ;)
<--- riding Italian steel again after all these years. At least it isn't rusty on the showroom floor any more.

Well the 451 does produce a lot of heat, the other day after driving for 20 minutes I stopped and someone wanted to see the engine and wow opening the engine bay produced a huge wave of heat.
I've not noticed the back getting hot after an hour or so drive, so I doubt the ice cream would melt ;) there is a good seal around the engine bay and 2 heavy layers of firewall type material.

Heat From Engine?
Nope. Not a problem. Six trips in the last 18 months with the Euro version that were in excess of 750 miles each. Straight through. No stops other than fuel. All summer trips. Absolutely no problems with heat from rear area.

Always carry a straw.

|smorris||It didn't seem to be a problem for my VW or FIAT rear engine cars. Porsche is putting out some serious HP right there behind the driver, as are Ferarri, Lambo, et al. It shouldn't be a problem for a low out put engine with adequate insulation and cooling.|
