Hey all, thinking of buying a 987.2. 
 

Random question, we have two small dogs, is the rear hatch space suitable to put a dog beds in? By this I specifically mean how hot/warm does the engine bay space get? Is the carpet always hot / warm once car is up and running?

 

or is the engine hatch area floor generally warm?

 

dogs are small so space size is should be fine.

I would not put our one small dog back there because of heat/noise .

Hi Shuey

I have to demur from the other reply I've a 987.2 and I reckon the rear boot space is no warmer or noisier than the rest of the cabin (ie where we humans sit).

This rear space is only closed off from the remainder of the cabin by a removable partition (which hangs on the underside of the boot door and is easily removed) - it's purpose I think is to conceal from prying eyes any valuables in the boot. With its removal air flows freely from one end of the cabin to the other. The dogs would be no closer to the engine than we humans the other side - and we seem to find it bearable if not enjoyable. As for heat, the floor of the rear boot does not get warm.

Best just to stick a couple of dogs in and see how they do.

 

Please report back as I'm sure there will be lots waiting for the conclusion of his epic thread.  :)

could be worse....a thread about how much weight one can put on the roof rack

I get your point, but this is a life and death matter!

 

I suppose you could put the dogs in a roof box with vents.

I disagree. Anytime ive put an overnight bag in the boot space and then driven somewhere the bottom of the bag is quite warm when I’ve taken it out at the destination (ie don’t ever leave chocolate in there!). 
 

despite the heat shields underneath the car, the exhaust boxes are right under the boot and these heat it up too.

yeh I can just about be ok with having one hot dog, not sure want to risk having two hotdogs... to be honest not sure the cayman is workable more I think about it. it can't be much different from the bonnet heat and if the dogs are on the roof - then I'm concerned about my drag coefficient on the track...

you mention they are small dogs.... if handbag size, or thereabouts, can't one sit in the passenger footwell and the other on the passenger seat and/or lap of passenger.

She is a bit of a snob so that will be why she looks disgusted

Excellent, circular opening in bonnet and a pair of doggles and the jobs done.
