    child seat

    For those of you who have kids (My boy is 4). Did you buy the child seat from Porsche? How do they compare to the other child seats? Fits fine in the rear as well as the passenger seat?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: child seat

    Porsche child seat is nothing more than a rebadged Britax - of course for all the extra money u pay u get the proper Porsche logo on them.

    I've already answered you on the other forum but for those interested here, after a lot of research I went with Fisher Price Safe Voyage booster seats for my twins, they fit great in the rear, unlike most other booster seats which are too wide for the TT.

    Re: child seat

    Ordered the Porsche Plus Booster with my 997TT. It fits nicely in the seat - unlike previous child seats I've tested. My only complaint (or more likely, the boy's) is that the rear seat back places the back of the booster in a very upright position. Undoubtedly, he'll be slumped forward as soon as he falls asleep.

    I read in a post many months ago that the rear seat backs are easily removed and I think this would alleviate the problem, letting the booster seat back recline a bit. Anyone have experience with this?

    I took the seatback out of our cab in about 1 minute--it was just one or two screws on the outside bracket.

    Re: child seat

    I'm seriously considering buying a 2008 997 TT Cab, but want to be able to put a child seat for our 20-month old daughter in the back. This would need to be a full forward-facing child seat, rather than just a booster seat.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to if this will work? Which brands might work best? I'm also worried as I think the cab will have less room in the back than the coupe? Any knowledge from the 996 TT cab vs. the coupe? Does the TT cab have similar rear space as the regular 997 cab, or is it even less?

    Re: child seat

    The one that's narrow enough is Sunshine Kids's model with 5-point harness.

    As you can see from this overview, Porsche has a full seat that will fit in the front and rear of a 997.

    The biggest problem with a cab is that the seatback in the rear is very upright, maybe even angled forward, which would not be very comfortable for a 20 month old (or anyone else for that matter). So you might want to consider removing the seatback like BSL did.
