2013 Porsche 911: Well-Designed Door Pockets
January 22, 2014
There's not much in the way of stowage compartments in our 2013 Porsche 911. A center console will typically have one or two open cubbies and/or a pair of cupholders. These are usually big enough to securely stash my phone, garage door opener and office garage key card.
The 911's console has no cupholders (they are hidden within the passenger's side of the dash) and has only a small covered compartment along with a tiny open cubby. The former is shallow and not as easily accessed as an open compartment while the latter is suitable for holding a few sticks of Dentyne. All is not lost however...
Thankfully, the 911's door pockets help out in this regard. They're not exactly cavernous, but they easily accommodate all the aforementioned stuff and make it easy to access quickly via the pocket's clever swing-open design.
