2013 Porsche 911 Cabriolet: Child Seat. Can It Be Done?

2013 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

The presence of LATCH fasteners in our Porsche 911's back seats (I use the term loosely) means somebody thinks it's possible to put a child seat back there.

Here's the reality...

It can be done. But there are multiple caveats. First, there's no top tether, at least not in the Cabriolet. But the fact that you can lower the top to install the seat not only makes it easier but also possible without injury.

Still, this isn't an ideal setup. The lack of a top tether allows lateral movement and the lack of padding in the rear seat cushions prevents a sufficiently snug fit using only the LATCH fasteners.
