I need to be able to house my 7 month daughter in my (new) 993!

Ideally I would like to place her in the rear sets forward facing.

Do Porsche do official seats and are these likely to be least traumatic to my car's interior?

Any contacts?

I have read others using non-porsche seats by having their rear seat belts extended, but I am worried about potential damage to car seats/trim.

Please do not advise me not to take my baby in my car!

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about your trim etc. Quick Fit have a very good reputation and I am sure they could do the work without damaging your car. Why not go along and see they handiwork?

hi

one thing you might need to investigate is when is a baby able to sit forward facing.........i have read stuff on the net from sweden that says up to i year is dangerous if not facing backwards because of neck/spine strength in an impact.........

latest rresearch says that baby seats should be rear facing in the rear seats for 18 months...........dont want to be voice of doom.....but
i have 3 kids that have to be sorted to go in a 911 when i find one !!!

i spoke to quick fit in stamore and they have a variety of options....but you should investigate when a child can face forwards

I've got the Prince Porsche seat in my 993. It is a one piece seat originally designed to fit the 996 but now fits the 993. It requires a longer rear belt - available as a Porsche part through your dealer.

If you don't like the seat then try Quick Fit Safety Belt Service in Stanmore. They just fitted rear belts to my brothers early 944 - a really neat installation and something most people said couldn't be done. I understand they have a selection of child seats/restraints. They are on 0208206 0101

regards

Peter

Hi all,

My first time here :)

I was searching at the net for a baby seat for my 951 and I faced with this forum.

Huffwood, could you manage me some more information about the 944 baby seat and where to get it, cause here in Portugal its almost impossible to get anything to my 951, and I really want to stay with my 2 babys Very Happy on a ride (of course Bruna its my heart)

OK, so there's info on here about child seats for 993s, but my question is does anyone have any recommendations for a pram/buggy/transport system that would fit in the front luggage compartment?

Colin

We did have a three wheeler buggy/pram. The wheels are detachable with a quick releae lever, the rest of the pram then folds up quite small/flat, whole lot then fits into the front compartment quit well. Can quite remember the name but if you can find a baby shop they'll find it for you. The only trouble with the pram was that it's quite long and the front wheel doesn't swivel, so it's not the best handling pram ever.

I Have tried the all the usual forward facing child seats in the rear of my 993, Britax Freeway, Porsche Prince, etc. But can't seem to find one the sits firmly/ correctly in the rear seats. The only joy I've had is Quickfit @ Stanmore who said they could fit one for �300 !!!!. The wifes obviously suggesting sell the "in-practical" car, Rolling Eyes
but this surley can't happen, any help advise would be greatly recieved.

sorry but haven't had to find anything other than a booster as my kids are 7 & 5, however why not suggest that the baby seat goes on the front seat and the missus sits in the back! There perfect!

Cheers Poon, have tried that one but she's not wearing it, saying its unsafe for the seat to be in front & I can see her point because its a LHD. I'm desperate to find a reasonable solution, my only option seems to be spending 300 on the Quickfit one.

Has anybody else used Quickfit @ Stanmore to fit a seat in the rear of theres & is it any good ?

Thanks.

point about Porsche Prince that another 993 has said..

I use the Porsche Prince baby for my two year old, when i first bought it I thought the same thing as you. The Porsche Prince baby seat look flimsy and not very safe. But I must say the looks are deceiving, the Porsche Baby seat works very well, by applying a gentle pressure on the toddler while braking, which holds the toddler firmly in place, when the baby seat tries to move forward. The pad is also good for toddler when they want to sleep.

cotty - Quickfit fitted an extended rear belt to my 993 as it wasn't quite long enough to go around the Prince seat. They did a very good job.

I found the Prince seat to be fine - once the large plasic block is on the child's lap with the belt going through it it's a very good fit.

I have just fitted a Porsche Prince seat to my 993- it fits fine; it does not fit snugly and rigidly like some of the seats you may be used to, but it works in a different way. I cannot imagine Porsche would offer it in their brochures if they were not 100% happy with it.

I needed to fit an extended seat belt too- cost about 80 from OPC, and took about 20 mins tops for me to fit- dead easy, and I am not DIY inclined...

Robert.

I concur totally with the man above. I work in the industry and tried very hard to find an alternative to the Prince. After, having exhausted all my contacts I ended up buying a Prince. Works just fine.
