    997 Spare Tire Option!!

    I was at the dealership and saw this 997s being delivered with what the salesman says is a Spare Tire option. The tire sits in the back seat fastened by the seatbelt sitting on something that does not make it move like a base. I can not imagine its good for the leather in the seat but I shot some pics for you guys to see if you are interested in something like this, ask your porsche dealership. I forsure do not want to ruin my seats and where the heck am I gonna put the busted tire??? cause this one is a lot smaller. I think if this happens to me, I'll just call Porsche Assistance and get it over with... Anyways, here are the pics:

    Now that's called creative . Thanks for the pix .

    Re: 997 Spare Tire Option!!

    You've got to be joking...that looks ridiculous. Maybe you can put a spare battery on the other seat?

    You have the geniuses at SASO to thank for this comedy stunt

    Re: 997 Spare Tire Option!!

    What on earth was PAG thinking when they dreamed this one up...
    We'll offer up a solution that nobody will want nor accept.
    There should be an award for this blunder!

    Looks good to me.

    You'll notice the thing has a base so it won't chafe or deform the seat. When doing a road trip you have to pack the car with luggage anyway. Taking a spare along like that doesn't really bother me. I'll probaby put it in the trunk anyway. Assuming it fits.

    Good news for exotic travelling without *satellite* phones.

    The seat is already deformed if you look closely. Also, the question is... should a rear flat occur, will the rear wheel fit in the back seat?

    You may be right, though I think the rear seats have that bend where the plastic insert contacts them.

    Since the tire diameter is the constraint (not width), it appears to be a fact that a full sized (flat) tire will fit in the back seat.

    At least the option is available, though the appearance seems a little absurd.

    Thanks Muhri,
    Not pretty and compromises rear spaces but at least it's an alternative to those who really want a spare wheel.
    Once again, it's good to have the choice.

    Re: 997 Spare Tire Option!!

    A great idea.
    I wonder if they do color-matched wheel covers.
