Hello all,

I am gradually accumulating the funds I need to buy my dream car - a Gen 2 997 Carrera.

In the meantime it would be very interesting to know the largest cuboid item that can fit comfortably. It would be my only vehicle and thus it would have to serve the function of function band tour bus (a small PA system and bass gear must fit inside somehow - a roof rack will probably come into play too)

Would it fit a speaker 44cm x 38cm x 43cm?

Thanks

Jon

You may be lucky, just don't buy a GTS, Turbo or 4S. They all have a slightly smaller boot space than the Carrera S. Your main issue will be the fairly square shape.

The pink case in the example above was a very snug fit.

Haha great. I stand corrected. Looks like the froot might be just big enough, excellent!

It has been debated before and I think you'll find that there's a lot more 911ukers that refer to it as the frunk rather than the froot.

A quick google search seems to point to 'froot' being more of an Australianism.

I hadn't actually heard froot till now, but it makes much more sense and should be promoted thumbsup Thumb Judge
