After loads of testing, it's finally ready to order.

Porsche is a company obsessed with innovation, despite whatever the rear-engine layout of the 911 may initially suggest. Every little detail, from the design of the body to the way a vehicle feels is important at Weissach, and this obsession with perfection is what makes the sports car manufacturer one of the greatest ever. Everything is important, from the engine to something as seemingly straightforward as the seats. Last year, Porsche revealed new seats created through 3D printing, and in the time since these seats have been undergoing testing at various race events. Now they're ready for Porsche owners to add to their road cars.

3D-printed bodyform full bucket seats were also shown in the Mission R electric racer concept, and now that they have undergone their final adjustments, they're available to customers as part of the new Performance Parts range. These can be fitted in any Porsche model that is already eligible for the conventional bucket seat, but not all models can have the bodyform seat in both the driver and passenger sides of the vehicle. Those that do qualify for both sides are the 981 Boxster and Cayman, the 991 911, and 982 718 models produced up to and including November 22, 2020. 718s and 992-generation 911 models produced thereafter can only have the driver's seat replaced with the new offering.

The seats are eco-conscious too, featuring a sandwich construction that sees a base support made of expanded polypropylene bonded to a breathable comfort layer created using polyurethane-based materials made using 3D printing. These components are clipped together rather than glued together, meaning that “the seat generates no emissions associated with adhesives.” Finally, the seats are wrapped in Race-Tex faux suede for that grippy feel while a perforated surface enhances passive ventilation.

Each seat costs €2,677.50, or around $3,100 at current exchange rates and takes just a few minutes to fit at a Porsche Centre. Black, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow are your color options for the 3D-printed latticework, but these will be joined by Arctic Grey, Ultramarine, and Shark Blue in February. If you want even more comfort from your bucket seat, Porsche is working on creating seats adapted to the individual body contours of each customer.
