A Diono RXT is heavy and leaves a gap at the rear base of the seat as ice9ine states, but it does fit. For longer drives, I use this since it has a harness seat belt and is a lot safer than the Cosco booster seat. I use the Cosco booster seat for the 1 mile drive to drop my 4 y.o off at daycare

the setbacks in the back are too short for a booster. I believe the cack of the seat has to be at least tall enough to reach the middle of the back of the kids head

The Cosco fits perfectly in the back. As another poster mentioned, the Porsche seat angles slightly. It is way overpriced for a booster seat (I know, shocking!) but I do like how it guides the seat belt for my younger children. I have a 4, 6, and 8 year old. Whatever two are riding with me, the youngest gets the Porsche booster. The both the 6 and 8 year old fit fine with the Cosco seat - the seat belt fits properly on them, not on the neck or too far on the shoulder. I still prefer the youngest in the Porsche seat, though. Eventually we will move on to Cosco seats on both sides as they outgrow the Porsche booster - my 8 year old is nearly too big for for the Porsche booster already.

Hope this helps!

BTW, first thing my son said when he rode with me: "Daddy, it sounds just like a race car!"

Why yes, son, yes it does....

They fight over who gets to ride with me...

Not sure what you mean. On the Porsche car seat the head rest is adjustable. At its tallest setting, it is above the top of my oldest son's head. For the Cosco, their heads are all below the top of the back seat. (My kids are still very little.). When their head goes beyond the top of the back of the seat, they won't need the Cosco as a booster either to guide seatbelt placement. Without the Cosco booster, the seat belt will not be placed properly on them at their age.

The placement of the headrest to the back/top of their head is important but so is the placement of the seatbelt between their neck (not on neck) and shoulder. The Porsche car seat also addresses this.

Sounds like you're ok in terms of a setup. I currently have a Porsche seat and my tall 5 year old only has only around 1" of clearance to the ceiling, so I'm not sure what to do after that given that the car's rear seat backs are not tall enough to properly support his head if there is a crash. I'm wondering whether it is possible to just use the seat back portion of the Porsche child seat but without the bottom part so that he sits lower but still has head protection

Can someone post a pic of a rear-facing baby seat that fits in the 911?
Thanks!

I think you are looking for a unicorn. The booster seats fit okay, but the likelihood of a rear facing fit is slim. Sorry.

Default Best seat back protection

Ok, yes, I know ... I am overly careful when it comes to my 991. But I just found the prefect seat back protection.

Picture attached. These are actually no-show lady socks. I have a black pair in my car and whenever my daughter rides with me, I pull them over her shoes. Keeps my car very clean and it cost only a few bucks. Best of all: no ugly kick mat in my car.

That's a great idea! I have been making my kids take their shoes off...

I did that as well in the beginning, but this is very easy and quick!

Yes can someone please post!

Can a rear facing car seat fit in the front passenger seat?

You would have to deactivate the front and side airbags and I don't believe the 991 comes with the LATCH hooks in the passenger seat.

I wouldn't...

Yup, and there's no button to switch the airbags off. I picked up two of the Porsche seats for my twins. They still need the backs and I like how they convert to a booster for when they are older. It's a cool feeling when your kids get just as excited as you do to ride in the car.

yes, it DOES fit...yes, it is almost impossible to do without having the passenger seat contorted into a grotesque pose but if you need to do it, it can be done.
