Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The driver's seat slides back a long way, and there’s a decent amount of head room in the front of the 911 – even for tall adults. The centre console, which fences off the driver from their passenger, is quite wide, but is padded so it's not uncomfortable to rest your left knee against.

A passenger isn't quite as well catered for when it comes to storage space. The glovebox is deep but quite narrow, making it hard to fit more than a few documents inside, while the door bins are also on the small side. You do get two cup holders, though, along with a shallow storage area under the central armrest for a wallet or phone.

Rear space

The 911’s sloping roof and tight rear knee room mean its back seats are really only suitable for kids or very small adults – and even then only for short distances. You're better off using the space to throw coats, bags and other odds and ends into.

This is far for a criticism, though, because most of the 911's rivals don't have rear seats at all.

Seat folding and flexibility

The rear seats split and fold down flat, allowing you to carry surprisingly long loads without much fuss – although getting them in might be a bit of a faff.

It's worth noting that unless you specify the optional full electric adjustment on the Carrera and Carrera S, you have to return the front seats to their original position manually after you've moved them forward to allow access to the rear seats.

 

Boot space

The main luggage area, which is in the nose of the car, is big enough to stow a carry-on suitcase, a soft weekend holdall or a few shopping bags. It's certainly better than nothing, but you do get more boot space in front-engined sports cars, such as the Jaguar F-Type Coupé and Mercedes-AMG GT.

As we've already said, though, you can always use the rear seat area to put bags, coats and shopping if you run out of boot space.
