2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Mon Jan 29, 2007 10:04 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

I have a headache trying to understand options for baby seat / buggy combo that will fit into a new 997 C2S.

Jack is just short of 4 months old. Possibly getting new car end of March so call it 6 months old at delivery.

I was working under the impression that I could only get a front facing seat that would fit into the front passenger seat leaving my wife to get into the rear - not ideal. Is there a safe seat for a baby of this age to sit in the rear? And, a buggy that will fit into the front luggage compartment - that is a proper buggy not just a frame that the car seat slots into?

I think that the sexy looking Quinny three wheel buggy thing more than easily fits under the front of a modern 911. I have a Maclaren one in mine, but these def won't fit in a C4!

I have seen plenty of rear forwad facing car seats in the back of 996/7 so that won't be a problem. I also think a rear facing baby seat will go on the front seat, although the wife in the rear isn't going to happen.

Not sure that you can get a rear facing baby seat for the back though, just not enough space.

You'll need to search for a Porsche Prince baby seat which is no longer made. These are found on either eBay or post up a WANTED msg on the various Porsche fora...

I don't think you are supposed to have rear facing baby seats in the front of the car without deactivating the airbag.

Obviously on a new order I will get them to de-activate the airbag and fit isofix brackets...

re buggy - the quinny zapp is the one to get - we have had one for a couple of years & all Mini drivers are fans for similar reasons. Bit basic 1-position from 6 months+, & before then has a maxi-cosi cabrio fitting. I am just acquiring a 993 Targa in replacement for the mini & not worried about the buggy....far more about finding 2 car seats for a 1 + 3 yrs old. Discussion forums here seem to be a year or so out of date so not sure what has come out recently.

Here's a post I made a while back

Link:
996 and a family

Since then we've had another son so the back of the 996 now has two M&P Pro-Tecs

Before son number two was big enough for a forward facing seat we had no problem fitting a rear facing seat in the back.

Although the M&P Pro-Tec will fit in a 997 AFAIK the 997 is ISOFIX equipped as standard so it might be worth a look at something like the Britax DUO-ISO. We've had these fitted in a BMW and now a Honda both with ISOFIX and they've been very good.

2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Sun Feb 11, 2007 10:13 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Hi,

The Quinny Zap is the buggy of choice but not suitabe realy until 6 months old when little one has good sitting balance. I have the M&P Protec in the back of my 996 C4S recommend for when older.

My daughter was 12 weeks when I picked up my beast and we used the Graco cradle that fits into the larger buggy. This is rear facing and fits nicely in the back.

Rear facing in the back is IMHO the safest option.

Regards Alan

2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Tue Feb 13, 2007 9:48 am    Post subject: Reply with quote

Jack will be 6 months old at time of delivery. His neck is already quite strong and he's quite developed for his age. I will probably not put him in the car until 7/8 months so straight into front facing seat in the rear with Quinny Zap also.

I think it would be a waste to not use the isofix in the rear but take on board comments about the Porsche Junior seat that has the annoying front padding which i have heard really bugs the kid. Will check out the britax.

Cheers
