Boot space

Ashamed that after years of sports cars I have to ask this.

I have the chance of a lovely 996 turbo but the boot space is akin in size to a Sainsbury carrier bag....my TVRs had huge boots......

The reason for the change in cars is a 15 month daughter who has an awful lot of " extras" such as a push chair. Anyone got a solution to get the kit in for not only daily daughter movements (!) but also to take us all on holidays. At present it looks impossible.

Cheers
:eek:
 
Buy yourself a 996 Targa :thumb:

Rear hatch makes the cabin load area accessible and usable...I managed to get a road bike in mine!!
 
Hi you may be surprised what you can cram in the boot and with a bit of rear seat down jiggery pokery Im sure you'd cope, you could maybe get a cheap battlebus for shopping/short runs etc that can collect trolley dings and keep conjested journey miles down :dont know:
Just a thought....

I find my C4S really practical, the front boot space is more than adequate and fits a large amount of stuff in there.

I think there are specific types of buggys and the like that fit into the boot, I've read a few threads around here on this topic :thumb:
 
Short term if you need to you could add bars and a roof box. Not ideal, but if means you can keep the car (and avoid the expense of changing) then you'd be quids in and happy ;)
 
The car is so good but the little monster needs so much stuff! Have an Alfa for the main car so this is a toy for high days and holidays........,must be a turbo as I've driven it now and nothing else will do.........so full of speed and life

In that case just do it! We have a big 4x4 which makes the 996 slightly cramped when i insist on using it for Sundays out with a 9 and 3 year old, picnic, scooter, toys etc. It might be a squeeze but the kids still fall asleep on the way home and I get to spend the day grinning!
Go for it!

it doable but tight, i have a 2 and 4 year old and we can get a buggy(quinny Zap) and a squidgy holdall in the front and the travel cot and duvet go behind the back seats with a few other bits on the floor in the back and any hole i can fill. It does mean that we can go away for weekends with the family in the c4s :)
 
Wouldn't 2wd be better than AWD as you don't have the extra gubbins eating into the front storage space :dont know:?
 
Get a trailer, sorted. :thumb:

Have you considered putting the kids in the boot (quieter) and all the gear in the back (no cost of kiddy seats). Just a thought.
 
I did jokingly tell my 6 year old we could put him in the front with a bag of crisps for a quiet life. he was quite up for that.

I then said we could cut a hole in a boot lid and mount a little plastic dome on it for him. He now keeps asking me when we can do that...
