    Child seats for rear of 911

    Can anyone give a new 996 owner some direction on booster seats and child seats that fit in the rear seats? I have a 2 year old and 5 year old, both car lovers but I am having a tough time getting any of their seats to fit. I saw a posting about latches? Are their latches for child seats in the 996?
    Thanks for any help for a guy still trying to convince his wife that the 911 was a good choice!

    Re: Child seats for rear of 911

    The rear seats of the 996 and 997 are too narrow to fit many modern booster seats, such as the Graco Turbobooster. You need to get a booster seat with an adjustable width, such as the Britax Parkway or the recently discountinued Fisher Price Safe Voyage booster seat (a Britax rebrand). I got mine for a great price from Albee Baby

    The official Porsche child seat installs in the front passenger seat. You can have latches installed in the front passanger seat of your 996 along with an air-bag deactivator. Do a search for "child seat" and you will get all the gory details.

    For my 996 C4S and my subsequent 997 S, I stuck with Porsche's car seats. Both the child seat and the booster of them fit on the rear seats perfectly. I don't know about the infant seat but for sure the other ones do.

    Both the Porsche Junior Seat LATCH part number 955.044.800.39 and Porsche Plus part number 955.044.801.03 work and fit perfectly in the rear seats. I've used both at different times as the kids were growing. Get the one you need according to your kid's age and weight. I recommend against putting a kid in the back until they are about 2 1/2 to 3 years old so they don't get carsick and vomit inside your car. Put them in the front until then.

    I have used the Porsche Junior for about 3 years in my Boxster and my child has done really well in the seat - seems to find it very comfortable.

    I have not yet had the latches installed in my front seat but the kit is called "Child Seat Preparation" and comes with an airbag disable switch. Have a look at

    For my 2001 Boxster, I did not get the latch system installed and am not sure if it was even available. Instead, I used an airbag disable kit combined with the seat belt which went through a channel in the car seat. In addition, there was a strap attached to the seat with a clip on the strap. The strap went over the top of the seat and I clipped it to the roll bar which had a small welded loop that worked perfectly. I never knew what the loop was really intended for but it was perfect for this.

    I have a 911 now and I'm going to use my existing Porsche car seat (Porsche Junior) in the front with the Child Seat Preparation kit. I'm going to buy a Porsche Kid Plus for the back seat. Might be able to save some $$$ on a different brand booster seat but, after such a good experience with the Porsche Junior, I'm going to stick with something that I know is comfortable for the kids.

    Good Luck
