Rear seat space in Porsche 911 (977)

Hi

I was looking at a few cars and the 911 caught my eye. I'm concerned about the rear seats. Are they large enough to comfortably seat 6" tall people?

Thanks

No

Most 911's with rear seats are just for show, you might be able to fit a baby seat at best, the Panamera would be a better option if it has to be a Porsche, although the Cayenne is better than most give it credit for.

6 foot tall people? Ahahahahaha.

 

I'm 6 foot 3 and the only cars I sit comfortably in the back are Estate cars, when the person has their seat forward.

Never sat in the back in a 300C eh?

 

EDIT

 

Or A Mk3 Granada Scorpio

And OP

I looked for images of the 977 revision, but only found 2 seater convertables,

So judging the Coupe versions I will stand by what I said, as the low roof would make sitting in the back very cramped indeed, not to mention the front seats for anyone over 6 foot would have to be set so far back, that they'd be almost touching the bench of the back seats.

I tried getting in the back of a 911, and it was just not happening. I would recommend it for little kids, or people shorter than 3 ft tall.

Well, yes, I'm 6 foot 1, and I can sit comfortably enough to Drive a 911 turbo (not that I have driven one)

If you need to give friends a ride... you will get either SUV or trucks... (or a car with height room.)

 

Sport cars are for 1 or two people but you can put your things in either backseat or trunk.. that's it..

 

tall people will hurt their neck if they tilt the neck in backseat too long. Unless he/she can lay down on sideways.

You can get a 6 foot tall person in the back of a 911, if you chop them up and place them in a holdall on the back seat...

 

Otherwise stop being ridiculous :)

OK so you can fit as many 6" (inch) people in the back seat of a 911 as you want.   :woot:

 

However... The only purpose or reason for back seats in sports cars is for INSURANCE purposes.  Sure you can fit some little people there, but the real reason is the Insurance companies rates these cars as 4 Seaters rather that 2 Seaters.. Hence.. Cheaper insurance.  I could be wrong.. It has happened before.. i think.. :|
