    997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    Hello, my 997S in on the vessel and I'd like to know how the porsche child seat mounts on the rear of the 997
    Does the rear seats of the 997 have the LATCH system??

    Thanks in advance

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    In America you have to go to your dealership to have them added. They have a kit for that.

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    I had the switch off airbag installed on the front, so I can put my child seat on the front seat.

    I don't think there is anything for the back seats.

    The back seats are too narrow for most child seats.

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    The back seats are already child seats! Put something for them to sit on to elevate and see how the seatbelt fits. My kids were fine (youngest was 3 when I got the car)

    Gnil, I don't understand...doesn't your car have the light on the console that shows the airbag deactivated when there is a person under the cut-off weight in the seat? My kids also ride in the front and I didn't install a switch.

    This is only on US cars due to your specific regulations..

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    In Australia the ISOFIX point is standard in the rear. Any car with rear seats have to have it here.

    What about german 997s? I bought mine in Stuttgart... Porsche Child Seats are claimed to fit on the rear of 911s...

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    I have a 06 997S cab and have been looking for seats for the rear (I have twin boys almost 2) and the Cabs dod not have Latch systems in the rear. Porsche no longer makes child sets, at least the ones I need. Been trying to find 2 seats, so far no luck.

    The tequipment I can see in my brochure are for the front seat :


    porsche baby seat ISOFLEX, G 0+ ( o to 18 month)

    Porsche Junior Seat ISOFIX, G1 + G2 ( 9 month to 7 years)

    ISOFIX equipment ( REf: 997 044 800 10 )

    Again, all of this is for the FRONT seat.

    Maybe there are smaller seats that would fit the back, I don't know.
    All the ones I have tried do not fit.

    In the back you can use a booster.

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    Use the teather strap at the top , its hidden by the carpet you make a small cut where the square cut out is to expose it. Then add the standard seatbelt through the back of the car seat. Worked great for me. I also removed the seat backs, Its only 3 screws and gives you an extra 4 inches of leg room for your kid.

    What is the name for the Porsche kit in the US to install the LATCH system? LATCH is much better than just putting the seatbelt across the booster seat!!

    To the best of my knowledge, Porsche does not provide any way to install lower LATCH anchors into the rear seats. Porsche only offers a kit to install the LATCH anchors into the front passenger seat. Please advise if I am mistaken.

    Thanks hatchback, that's what I thought.

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    I tried to put a "babylove compact" seat in the rear last night, and there is literally no room for the baby's legs if he dangles the leg over the edge. And we can't get the P babyseat on Tequipment anymore..Looks like the 911 is just not for babies/kids

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    Pete, what does the Porsche sales manager use in his car? I have seen it and it fits.

    It is , I take my kid often in the 911, but it is planed for the FRONT seat!!!!!

    In the back it works only with a booster!

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    Wayne, the Porsche sales manager has a toddler, but I don't know what he uses.. I'll have to ask him.
    Gnil, I believe it's illegal to de-activate the front passenger air-bag in Australia... otherwise he could be in the front and the wife in the back

    Re: 997 Child Seat on the Rear seats

    Someone must have a baby cos I have seen baby seat on a 997 there and it is apparently the sales manager's car (or maybe the GM)...

    Hey Gnil, Anything to get the family from A to B in the P-Car. Wayne, I'll ask the GM and let you know. I'm not so sure I wanna remove the back seat to fit the baby-seat, but the extra 4 inches leg room sounds good.
