Child Restraint Systems

Porsche recommends that all infants and children be restrained in child restraint systems at all times while the vehicle is in motion in accordance with applicable laws.

Use only child restraint systems with the LATCH system recommended by Porsche. These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child age groups. Other systems have not been tested and could entail an increased risk of injury.

You can obtain child seats that are

LATCH compatible at your authorized Porsche dealer.

f Always observe the separate installation instructions for your child seat.

The use of infant or child restraints is required by law in all 50 states and the Canadian provinces. The child restraint system should be one that complies with U.S. Federal/Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards 213 and should be secured by a lap belt or lap belt portion of a lap-shoulder belt or for child seats equipped with the LATCH sytem (Lower Anchorage and Tether for Children, also known as ISOFIX) to the LATCH anchorages. A statement by the seat manufacturer of compliance with this standard can be found on the instruction label on the restraint and in the instruction manual provided with the restraint.


The key switch for switching off the passenger's airbag and the LATCH attachment bracket are not installed at the factory. They can be retrofitted.

f Please see your authorized Porsche dealer.


Risk of serious personal injury or death to the child.

f Follow all child restraint instructions and warnings in this manual.

- When using an infant or child restraint system, be sure to follow all manufacturer's instructions on installation and use.

- Infants and small children should never be held on the lap, nor should they share a safety belt with another occupant while the vehicle is in motion.

- Children too big for child restraint systems should use regular safety belts. A shoulder belt can be used providing it does not cross the face or the neck of the child.

- The airbag deactivation device installation requires special programming available only from your authorized Porsche dealer.

- Your authorized Porsche dealer will be glad to advise you about the installation possibility for a Porsche child restraint system which allows deactivation of the passenger's airbags.


The use of a child restraint system in the passenger seat without airbag deactivation can result in serious personal injury or death to the child from an airbag deployment. To reduce risk of injury from an inflating airbag in an accident, Porsche strongly recommends:

f For children up to a weight of 27 kg (59 lbs.), the passenger's airbag must be switched off if a child restraint system is used on the passenger's seat.

The passenger's airbag must be switched on for children weighing over 27 kg (59 lbs.).

f Please observe the chapter "KEY-OPERATED AIRBAG DEACTIVATION DEVICE" on Page 49.
