So did you have a dead car battery or was just the key fob battery dead? If you have electricity available where your car is stored you should use a battery maintainer, the CTEK 3300 is a good one. The CTEKs will cycle and not overcharge your battery. You can get an attachment to plug the CTEK maintainer in through your cigarette lighter too. And a battery maintainer plugged into the cigarette lighter will usually give you enough juice to pop the trunks open when the battery is dead. On a 987 you can probably also re-route the frunk emergency release cable to be hidden in the bumper behind the cover for the tow hook, like many do for the 986.
