Hi, If anyone has a chance, could they measure the trunk and frunk dimensions for me? Everywhere i've looked its just in litres or cubic feet instead of actual measurements.
I'm trying to work out if there is any possibility of fitting this bag https://www.dakine.com/en-ca/bags/travel-bags/luggage/split-roller-110l-bag/ (even if mostly empty) in the car.
Dimensions given for the bag are 32 x 17 x 13" [ 81 x 43 x 33cm ] but it is squishy with a solid metal frame/handle down the back.

Picking the car up from the dealer on the way back from work trip where I'll need ski gear. Worst case scenario is i empty the bag completely into the trunks and put the bag in the passenger seat i guess?

Thanks!

I measured for luggage a few months ago, but my exact measurements are at home ... That said, you're out of luck, I'm afraid: 32" is a no-go in the front and only barely do-able in the back, where you've only got about 12" of vertical clearance with 14" of fore-aft clearance. Your bag will be too big by 2-3" on all three sides.

Thanks, i thought as much. Might be plan B, empty everything out and put the empty (squashed down) bag in the passenger seat! Either way, I'm pickin' up my new cayman!!!!!! :-D

OK so its 10 degrees in my garage but I wanted to find out for myself as well. My Frunk is 28L x 17W x 18D(in the front). This is on a Blue Graphite car which we know has a larger that normal 718 frunk (not really). I hope those dimensions help. I would probably get yourself different soft sided luggage or be truly frivolous and pack it in a duffel bag in the suitcase. Chuck the suitcase when you get there. I save my passenger seat for Network gear and large bulky security equipment when I take them to Customer sites. oh and the jumbo pack of toilet paper from Costco.

I'm jealous, you must have a heated garage...:D
You have a garage? You're lucky. I don't even have a carport. I have to drive my car over 100 yards across soft wet clay to park on the lawn next to a gravel pit that throws tiny shards of granite every time the wind blows.

My garage is semi-heated but "Plain Jane" (no options) has to share with 2 others. :)

You have a gravel pit? You're lucky. I park in a swamp that is patrolled by alligators the size of school busses and mosquitoes the size of pterodactyls. You, my friend, live in luxury. :laugh:

One of our local insurers, who says they specialise in "enthusiasts' cars" refused to even give me a quote 'cause the car was too expensive and further, it wasn't parked in a locked garage!:confused:

Does any have info to share on fitting a folded camp chair in either cargo spaces of a new 718 cayman? I’m in need of a chair for PCA meets and want make sure it can be stowed. Obviously I don’t have my cayman yet to take measurements

I fit mine in the trunk, lays down flat. I don't think it would fit in the frunk.

My folding camp chair fits on top of the engine where I strap it down.

That’s a great idea! I buy a few bungy cords.
Oddly enough, if you fold the chair up tightly and either put it in its bag or bungy cord it in the fully closed position, then bungy it down using the rings on the engine cover, your rear view mirror is almost unobstructed. Here is what I use to secure it to the rings (two of them). And because I hate trying to stuff it into the bag, I bought one of these.

These are great ideas and product. Thanks
