I recently received my '23 BB and immediately upon delivery I purchased the frunk and trunk liners for protection. Now that I've had the car a month and I have had time to look over the entire vehicle learning all of its nuances I have settled on the frunk space. One of the many intended uses of this vehicle is for trips to San Luis Obispo County where there are over 325 wineries. My wife and I spend many weekends there every year. In addition to the wineries there is over 100 miles of coastline, cool weather, craft breweries, distilleries, and all manner of shops that my wife loves.

The Boxster promised a lot of space for bags in the front and an ample amount of space in the back. I've watched many videos, most not very good, but one or two that aptly showed the approximate amount of cargo space. I had fully planned to get our carry-on type bags into the frunk without any issues. I took my suitcase out to the Boxster before I loaded any clothing into it and I discovered that the frunk liner takes away a significant amount of bag space. The bag I was using measures 26"x17" or 66x43cm and these measurements include the soft handles and the wheels. The bag did not fit all the way in the frunk with the liner in place.

Without the frunk liner in place the lower portion of the frunk measures 28"x18" or 71x45cm and the upper half of the frunk measures 28.5"x19.5" or 72x50cm, and the total usable height of the frunk appears to be about 18" or 45cm. Maybe a little more since I can't close it and see where the bags are hitting. I measured that right at the front of the edge.

With the frunk liner in place the usable space is lessened more than I would have expected. The usable space with the liner in place is about 24"x13" or 61x33cm at the lowest part of the frunk because the liner is sloped inward at the bottom. Space for a second bag is increased because the second bag will sit above the liner so usable space becomes about 28.5"x19.5" or 72x50cm. You also lose a bit of usable height because the liner sits above the bottom of the frunk so you only have about 16" or 40cm of usable height.

My measurements in would you please give me a call when you get a chance may be a tad off because I rounded up or down depending on the numbers after the decimal point. So the bottom line I discovered is that with the plastic frunk liner in place you will have to find a smaller carry-on type bag and use a similar sized second bag or you can find a slightly larger second bag. But at this point I think when it comes time to travel I'll be pulling the liner out of the frunk so I can get more usable space for the two bags.

A relatively large difference and why I chose not to purchase any liners (that and the CEO is much happier when she can also take along the kitchen sink). That said, I did install frunk & trunk lid protectors, as they really aren't space eaters.

Boxster version is slightly different dimensionally, you'd want this one:

And for the Frunk...
