We use the Cosco Top Side Booster and the Safe Traffic System Ridesafer (that's a mouthful).

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
Does an adult (comfortably) fit in the front passenger seat when using Porsche seat in rear?

With the booster seat - yes. Not sure with the car seat.

Default Maxicosi rodifix

Ok, I followed the OP's advice and went for the maxicosi rodifix. I posted pictures of the Diono RXT before.

The maxicosi is awesome! It clicks right into the latch and the buckle is very easy to access (unlike the cosco, where you have to make this work a little.

The seats fits very nicely in the rear seat, as if it was made for the 991!

Pictures below

Nice intel here. Ability to seat a full size adult in front passenger seat for extended trip?

Yes, no issues. And my wife is 5'8. I must say that my daughter now sits closer to the seat than with the backless Cosco booster, but no problem. I do have my solution to protect the back of the passenger seat.

I really feel more comfortable with this seat than with the cosco as she was not getting any head support in case of a collision since the rear seats do not have headrests.

This seat is light and very easy to click in and out and as you can see, I was able to have a thick very protective car seat protector under it.

TrappistMonk, the Maxi-Cosi seat looks great. I just ordered one after seeing your photos. Thanks to you and the OP.

Great, I'm sure you will enjoy it. Don't forget the no show lady socks to protect your seat backs (see earlier post/pictures)

Only if you want it to :-)
The headrest is height adjustable. It can't go in its highest position without touching the alcantara, but in its lowest position it does not touch the alcantara of the c-pillar

Same here. I had the Diono for my Cayenne & the wife's GL, but didn't like it for the 911. I just bought the Maxi Cosi Rodifix too and love it. My daughter is 3.5yrs old, and I don't think she's big enough for a booster and with no head protection. This Maxi fits very nicely in our rear seat, super easy to mount. And my wife could sit comfortably at the front with plenty of leg room for both of them (front & back) too.

Is it tough to buckle...ie can your sons/daughter climb in & buckle themselves or do contort back there from front and help?

It use the factory regular rear seat belt, not 5points harness. So IMO it's even easier to buckle up. And yes, my 3.5yrs old could climb in & out by herself. But she's not strong enough to push the buckle (lock/unlock) by herself yet.
