Fantastic info. Really appreciate the level of detail here.

Im very close to deciding on which 997 I’ll be moving on soon but taking my son along for rides will be a must.

Convertibles have way less room but easier access. My daughter pointed at the 997TTS when my parents were around and said "I really really like this car. It's really really fast!"

BRITAX Marathon Clicktight is perfect, and just bought my second one for $249 shipped from eBay. Wife took the first one but she’s not my wife anymore! Had to get another seat. My son loves that seat and loves the 911 rides. I offered a LATCH seat up front which he refused, and he’s still light enough to ride in the back. He doesn’t mind getting back there at all since the Fabspeed stereo sounds so good......

Great thread. Thank you all.

I got a Porsche Junior for my 991.1 Targa but it’s surprisingly heavy. How does the Britax Marathon Clicktight compare?

It's much lighter but if you're not going to use the seat belt to anchor the seat, the Britax Roundabout is more compact.

I have the Britax Clicktight in my Outback. Great seat!

I also have MiFold's for my F450, and when we travel. These things are easily transportable.

Looking to revive an old thread.
i am considering a 997, but would need to use both rear seats. I’m 5’10. How would leg room be for the driver?

My 7 year old sits comfortably behind me in his high backed booster. My 5 year old sits behind the passenger seat because he has a tendency to kick the seat back in front of him.

I'm 5’10” as well. Admittedly, the seat is a little closer than I’d like, but still quite comfortable.

I'm unsure about the bubble bum and other boosters in the back seat of cabs and here's why. As far as I can tell there isn't an active restraint system for the rear seatbelt, (and maybe that's a good thing) but one is dependent on the gravity/motion system to lock the rear seat belt which may not be that tight at the time of an accident. It seems that it would be easily possible for a child to be ejected in this situation. Spending $250 or $500 to ensure the safety of a child is a no-brainer.
