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.

When possible, use only child restraint systems recommended by Porsche. These systems have been tested and adjusted to the interior of your Porsche and the appropriate child weight groups. Other systems have not been tested and could entail an increased risk of injury.

The use of infant or child restraints is required by law in all 50 US states and the Canadian provinces. The child restraint system should be one that complies with U.S. Federal/Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and should be secured by a 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.

You can obtain child seats that are LATCH compatible at your authorized Porsche dealer.

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

A statement by the seat manufacturer of compliance with this federal standard can be found on the instruction label on the restraint and in the instruction manual provided with the restraint.

Improper Use of Child Restraint

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 neither 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 must use regular safety belts. A shoulder belt can be used providing it does
not cross the face or the neck of the child.
– Choose a child restraint system according to the weight of the child.
– Child restraint systems that are damaged or have been heavily stressed in an accident must be replaced immediately.
– Children could be endangered in a crash if their child restraints are not properly secured in vehicle.
– Do not affix objects to child restraint systems or cover them with other materials.

  • For maximum safety and protection, do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.

Direction of installation for child restraint systems
According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seating positions than in the front seating positions.

Under all normal circumstances, the child seat must be placed in the rear.

  • Do not use a child restraint system in the front passenger seat.
