I have a Brey-Krause mount that attaches to the passenger seat rails. The bottle (2.5 lb) is positioned under the passenger's calves. This came with the car when I bought it. Good thing is that the fire extinguisher is close at hand, even when I'm belted in. Some guy on the 911 Technical forum mounts his in the front trunk, which is probably as good as useless, IMO. Bad part about this BK mount is that it limits forward travel of the seat. Usually not a big deal, as I don't carry passengers. But if I did, that would hamper rear-seat access. I don't know if the newer BK mounts still have this problem, though.

I went with a handheld 2.5 lb Halotron fire extinguisher.

If you're super-serious about fire prevention or racing, you can install a 25-lb bottle with remote nozzles.
