Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

It’s almost as roomy as the coupé, but not quite. For those more than six feet tall, there’s plenty of head room, but while leg room matches the coupé’s, the installation of the roof mechanism behind the seats limits the amount of recline to the backrest when the driver’s seat is slid rearwards.

If you have long legs, this means you have to put up with a very upright seating position. This isn’t a problem you’ll encounter in the roomier 911 Turbo Cabriolet, which also has a couple of – admittedly small – rear seats, whereas the R8 Spyder is strictly a two seater.

The roof installation also removes the spacious secondary luggage area behind the seats that the R8 Coupé has, limiting you to just the 112-litre boot in the nose. This is big enough to fit a carry-on travel case plus a small soft shoulder bag at a push.

General storage space is not bad. You get shallow door pockets that’ll take a small bottle of water, a glovebox that’s big enough for a jar of coffee, while your takeaway latte will sit in one of the two cupholders.
