    Seat differences - Photos?

    So, my understanding is that there are 3 seats the car can be ordered with...

    Regular Seats (optionally with power)
    Sport Seats (optionally with power)
    Adaptive Sport Seats (always has power)

    Does anybody have explanations as to the differences between them, especially the first two?

    Any photos!?

    Thanks a bunch guys

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    I was at my OPC last week to check out the seat options and it is my understanding that there are in effect only two variants, with two options each:

    - Normal seats, Normal electric seats (lumbar support, electric settings, memory for seat settings and side mirrors)
    - Sports seats, Adaptive sports seats (=electric sports seats.. thinking the equivalent to the electric options above, just for sports seats.. memory functions, lumbar support etc)

    To be honest though, the sales guys seemed a bit shaky themselves on the seats and how they can have electric/memory options.

    I personally sat in the normal electric seats, normal standard seats and sports standard seats (which is what I'm driving around in), but they had no adaptive sports seats in the showroom to check out.

    The sports seats are narrower on the inside than the normal seats, with more pronounced side elements, providing great support in tight curves but possibly posing a problem for broad shoulders. I also wish my standard sports seats were adaptive.. I miss lumbar support on longer drives. After driving in sports seats for 9000 miles, trying the standard seats at the dealership didn't measure up anymore. I felt like I was wobbling around though I bet they are fine when you're used to them.

    Maybe someone who actually has the adaptive sports seats could confirm that they are just like the electric standard seats in their elecronic functions... only applied to the sports form. Thanks.

    The Adaptives appear to offer one extra feature which is the backrest side bolster adjustment..

    By five minutes I should add

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    hm...so nobody here has "power" sport seats then, i presume?

    also, does anybody have pictures of these 3 other kinds?

    great info guys, appreciate it so much!

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    I think that Sport Seats and Adaptive Sport Seats look the same, except for the switches at the bottom.

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    sport seats:

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    standard seats: (of course the controls are different see the great illustration posted by Matt above).

    Sport Adaptives

    If you look at the seat controls you can see the electric controls for back rest, base, side bolsters and lumbar.

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    another pic of the adaptive sport seats with side piece adjustment. The two leftmost buttons are used to inflate/deflate the side bolsters of seat and backrest.

    The LUMBAR is the round control toward the rear. (people may confuse the SIDE bolsters of backrest with lumbar)

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    this is great, you guys are awesome

    so now we've got good pictures of the adaptive sport seats and the regular seats. who has pictures of the sport seats (non-adaptive) WITH power?

    thanks@!

    Nonono... the adaptive sports seats ARE the sports seats with power.

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    Standard seats: self explanatory

    Sport seats, shoulder "tabs" and higher bolsters on kidneys and outer thighs.

    Adaptive Sport Seats: among other features they exclusively have adjustible electro-pneumatic cushioning for bolsters at kidneys and thighs.

    The power seat controls option automatically comes with the A.S.S.

    See excellent illustration by Matt above.

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    i think you guys have finally explained it well enough to get through my thick skull.

    so there really is no middle ground if you require power seats. it's either regular seats or A.S.S.

    Yep ,, in easier terms there are just 2 style seats available all you have to do is choose the power options on both..

    throt...

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    All seats, even Stardard (plain jane stock) have a power backrest.

    You can get fully electric seats as an option, but the option will only come with Standard Seats. (also includes electropneumatic lumbar)

    Sport Seats come just like standard seats: they (like all seats) have power backrests.

    The only way to electrify all controls onSport Seats is to order Adaptive Sport Seats which come with the kidney and thigh airbags AND lumbar airbag,

    fun huh?!

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    thank you porsche for requiring 2 PhD's to figure out the options guide!

    Yeah, it's frickin nuts. At least there are a few cars around to look at nowadays for most people. Last year there was nothing (for me at least).

    Re: Seat differences - Photos?

    i hear ya. don't know how i'd do it otherwise!
