And all these years, you thought those license plate frames and stroller bumper stickers were just a joke. British DT reader Paula's vexing circumstance proves otherwise. Can anyone help her out with the info?
Checking out this website, as the 'mummys' ones do not cover my question:A Bugaboo doesn't fit inside the bonnet of a 911? Hell, a Bugaboo barely fit inside the boot of a Mercedes R-Class. [Granted, I didn't break it down, but I'm trying to sympathize here.]
Will the Quinny Zapp fit into the front bonnet space of a 911 ???
P.S Our other pushchair is a Bugaboo Frog -It's pretty great, So, I can recommend that, but it doesn't fit in there.
Folded, the Zapp is supposedly 69 x 27 x 30 cm, or 56 liters, well within the 135 liters capacity of the newest 911, or even the 105 liters of the AWD 911 S. But what matters is the dimensions (of both the Zapp dimensions when folded--with the seat fabric on--and the luggage compartment) and the year of the car.
Before the 2005 model, the emergency tire took up most of the space, making anything bulkier than a toothbrush or a garment bag a real challenge. But last year, Porsche dropped the spare tire, and now the luggage compartment has some actual, usable space for the first time. The image above DOES look promising, as long as you take out that suitcase, of course. But forget the roof rack; you might as well take the Bug.
If someone out there has any two of the following: a Zapp, a pre-2005 911, and a tape measure, please chime in. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to recommend playing it safe--and trading the car in for a 2005 or later.
