    Convertible backseats

    Is there a big difference in room in the backseats between a 997 coupe and a 991.1 convertible?  I'm looking at a leftover 991.1 convertible to replace my 997 but need to be able to put small kids in the back seat.


    Re: Convertible backseats

    Its about 1-2inch bigger from the 997 if I remember correctly. My 10year old son fits in the back without issue and complaint - well unless I corner too fast indecision

    Re: Convertible backseats

    Thanks, has anyone put in a porsche junior seat into the back?

     


    Re: Convertible backseats

    Does the + 1-2 inches apply in the case of a coupe v. convertible comparison? I doubt it.

     


    Re: Convertible backseats

    rno - should also have mentioned I have had my 4yr old daughter in the car with her safety seat. Its tight but fine for short (1hr) trips.

    Re: Convertible backseats

    Heck I raised my kids in the back of the air cooled cars with their child safety seats. I would suspect the 991.1 is huge by comparison but I don't know about the cabriolet. ??


    Re: Convertible backseats

    Thanks.  Not just need to decide if I go with the 2015 c2s cab or order a 2017 c4s coupe.

    The Coupe is a bit more comfortable for the kids (backseats) because the backseats on the cab are slightly inclined forward (vs. the Coupe).

    However, I had my wife(!) sitting in the back of my 991.1 C4 GTS Cab for 60 km and more and while it wasn't perfectly comfortable, she didn't complain.

    Kids under 10 years of age should feel OK in the rear, older kids not so much (my 15 year old daughter refuses to driven the back of my GTS Cab).

    Re: Convertible backseats

    I'm leaning towards the 991.1 cab. I like the cab and the NA engine better. The 991.2 is definitely faster but doesn't sound as good to me and I'll never drive it to its limit on the roads around here. 

    Has anyone installed an aftermarket backup camera. That's the only thing it doesn't have that I wanted.

    Have you tried to ask for a retrofit of the OEM backup camera? Not sure it is possible though.

    Re: Convertible backseats

    The dealer is looking into it. Sounds like the navtv unit is what everyone adds. 


    Re: Convertible backseats

    Does anyone know the interior width in the backseats in the cab. Trying to see how much smaller it is and whether my golf clubs will fit ok (and also when a car seat is installed). I assume I'll need to take my driver and 3 wood out but they fit fine in my 997 coupe. 


    Re: Convertible backseats

    For some reason dealers can't retrofit the camera. Not sure why they don't offer a retrofit kit. Would love to be able to retrofit the oem park assist and camera.  But navtv looks like the only realistic option. 


    Re: Convertible backseats

    By the way, everything fits great in the car. Thanks for all the info.

    You're welcome Smiley...sorry that the camera cannot be retrofitted, they wanted to offer a retrofit kit but apparently this has something to do with the wiring harness, so... Smiley
