You may want to check out if the same seat works in the back of the 993... the width and depth available is much less in the 993 as compared to the 996.

Great work... thank you for posting your findings.

I'm sure there are many people placed with the unenviable task of placing the "baby forces sale" ad for their beloved porker who will be delighted to read this.

After some early teething troubles, my 2 1/2 year old loves coming out for drives in my 993 with me.

In fact, I might just suggest a little family outing in the 993 to feed the ducks this afternoon!

Wrong way round, Robert. It's 'Car forces sale... etc'.

Hi Folks, we have two new additions to the family

BABY 1 Scott who weighed in last week at 7lb 12

and BABY 2 993c2 cab

The problem is i need a rear facing car seat that fits in the back of my 993 so i can introduce the wee fellow to Porsche ownership, forward facing is out as he is to small at the mo, and rear facing in the front is out as the mrs does not fancy squashed in the rear and it means deactivating the air bag etc, and if she cant get out for a drive with us i can see the future conversations along the lines of " get that bloody car sold Evil or Very Mad
" are there any child seats that i can REAR face and fit in the rear of my 993 on the market, someone must have faced this problem in the past so please help.

regards Walt 993c2 cab

I think the problem is not getting the seat to fit but getting the seatbelt long enough to go round the seat. You'll almost certainly have to change the seat belt to a longer one. You can do it yourself quite easily. The passenger seat will have to be push all the way forward so the Mrs will be squashed anyway. We just waited till the little one was big enough to sit on a forward facing one, then it's much easier. You'll still need the longer seatbelt though. The Prosche Prince for 993 with the narrow base (I don't think they sell them any more, so try e-bay etc) fits quite well.

Congratulations Walt! Happy days...

Anyway, my suggestion is this- get a rear facing seat and place in the front seat. I would be surprised if you can find a rear facing seat which fits in the back seat of a 993 but I may stand corrected.

Speak to your local OPC (or indeed specialist) who can install a gadget which fits under the front seat and disables the airbag when a child seat is fitted. It isn't particularly expensive.

Once nipper gets older, there are a few forward facing seats which fit in the back- you will need to fit an extended rear seat belt which is easy.

Cabrio might muddy the water a bit as the rear seats are slightly different compared to the coupe IIRC.

Also worth speaking to Quick Fit SBS who have some expertise in recommending kiddy seats for 911s... website is under construction currently.

Quickfit SBS, Inertia House,. Lowther Road, Stanmore Middx. HA7 1EP England Tel (020) 8206 0101 Outside UK +44 20 8206 0101 Fax (020) 8204 1100 Email stuart@quickfit.demon.co.uk
www.quickfitsbs.co.uk

Worth persevering as 911s are great family cars!

I use a Porsche Prince for my 3 yr old and it works well. Worth seeing if your OPC can get hold of one for the future, or try PCT
www.pctcars.co.uk

Failing that, I saw a seat called a Romer Prince at a Mazda dealer at the w/e which looked exactly the same and I dare say cheaper as it doesn't have the Porsche badge...

was trying to remember the maker of the Porsche Prince and you've just reminded me. It is actually Romer. You can just order it from Germany for a fraction of the price Porsche charges.

I spoke to PCT a while back, the new "Prince" is for 996 on, so base is prob too wide for 993 rear, but I didn't actually go and see it so not 100%.

Congrats, excellent choice in new family members, although one of them will be considerably more grief than the other Smile Hopefully only one should cause sleepless nights, and a Porsche doesn't puke down your back at 3 in the morning, oh happy days he he.

Would be amazed if you can get a rear facing in the back of a 993.

Re Porsche Prince, they sell them any more, Mercedes sell exactly the same thing, but with Merc on it for 90, so a lot cheaper than the P. version. Baby will need to be about 9 months old though, they do sit awfully upright in it, but they work.

OPC charge for airbag deactivator on 996 fully fitted - 220.00 - its about 90.00 for the part and a thousand pounds an hour for labour/coffee drinking !!! Evil or Very Mad

Check your seatbelt length before you part with cash though. Maxi Cosi Cabrio is probably the no1 selling newborn/infant seat and it only just fits with seat back almost flat and seat travel as far back as it can go. My argument at the moment is that she'll want some snooze/battery re-charge/peace and quiet time to herself and we can be Captain amicable and take the little tike out for a spin for an hour or so.

James clearly loves the C4S as within minutes of pulling away, he's relaxed as a relaxed thing and sleeping like a ...........well sleeping like a baby actually Very Happy

B the way, slightly

James pretty much the same. Just over 12 weeks old - now 14lb 3oz so his appetite is ok!!!! very chilled out fella. Havent been on a car journey over an hour but if we're on one of Sara's shopping trips to Bluewater, he'll stay kipping for the journey there and back plus 2-3 hours shopping. I'm trying to find a pram big enough so I can do the same as it looks the only way to deal with shopping.

Jenny is good, gaining wt well, and now she actually looks like a normal size baby! She's been in the 993 a couple of times now but she still prefers a yellow RS though! Tried to fit the Mai Cosi in the back, even the longer seatbelt is not quite long enough to go round, might have a little fiddle again sometime to see if it fits.
