    Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    Hi all,

    My dealer tells me that the option for Alcantara inserts (25231) is incompatible with Sport Seats (manual or adaptive) for a C4S. Oy!

    That seemed to be the closest to recreating the feel of the old 964 RS America cloth sport seats.

    Has anyone sucessfully optioned leather sport seats with the Alcantara centers for a Carrera? Are there some other magic option codes to use?

    Thanks!

    i assume your sports seats are called race seats ? you can't order a GT3 CS with leather / alcantara seats , only cloth . you need to buy them after market

    Re: Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    I'm afraid your dealer is correct. It looks like the Alcantara inlays come from the base Boxster (which comes with Alcantara standard seats in Europe), and not from the GT3.

    Did you try to ask the Exclusive department directly? Since it's just a seat swap now that the GT3 has been released, they should be able to give you what you're looking for.

    By the way, keep in mind that the rear seats will NOT have the Alcantara inserts. Since neither the Boxster nor the GT3 have rear seats, the inserts would be a special development for you (read: $$$$$).

    Re: Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    If the Exclusive department fails to satisfy you try these guys in Chicago. They mainly do custom hot rods but also do factory like interior trimming for imports: www.moodysupholstery.com

    The Alcantara automobile upholstery material is now sold in the USA: German Alcantara Now Sold In The USA

    In Michigan there is www.928leathershop.com they did some of Jay Lenos cars and can direct you to someone in the Chicago area that does Alcantara seat inserts. Its not that difficult to do.

    And this company sells orginal Porsche carpeting, leather and upholstery materials in the US: www.worlduph.com

    Hey JimFlat6, Nice work on the links. Thanks.

    Re: Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    Thanks guys!

    I hadn't realized that the Alcantara seats are the Boxster option. As "Groom" suggests I'll contact Exclusive directly about what should be an easy seat swap (you would think, eh?).

    Thanks JimFlat6 for those pointers. I'll definitely speak with Moodys. They might be less expensive than the factory javascript:void(0)

    Re: Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    So if The Groom is right and the alcantara is from the European base Boxster, Americans would be paying extra for the base seat from the base model. Wow, even for Porsche that is one heck of an upcharge!

    Please keep us informed of their reply, and good luck with your purchase.

    That wasn't hard :-)


    Only a week after placing the order, my dealer succeeded in convincing Porsche to accept option 25231 in conjunction with the sport seats P77. My pro-forma invoice from PCNA now shows the option, priced at around $500 or so for the Alcantara panel inserts.

    Thanks again for the advice and pointers to alternative solutions.

    Re: Option 25231 - Alcantara on Sport Seats?

    Thanks for the update. Glad you got what you wanted.

    Good choice , alcantara sports seats are superb
