Sales launch for innovative 3D-printed bodyform full bucket seat

A group of Porsche drivers has been putting a new 3D-printed bodyform full bucket seat through its paces, including at the Manthey-Racing Nordschleife Trackdays 20/21, in a pilot phase that has generated valuable customer feedback.

Following some final adjustments, the customised seat is now available as part of the new Performance Parts offering from Porsche Tequipment. The seat is suitable for various Boxster, Cayman and 911 models. In addition to its unique look, the new central section of the seat is its main innovation: parts of the cushion and backrest surfaces are produced using a 3D printer and are available in three different rigidity grades, meaning the seat can be customised to suit the customer's specific needs.

Seats adapted to individual drivers have been available for a long time in professional motorsport. Now Porsche also offers a road-approved customisation with different rigidity grades as standard, says Porsche test driver Lars Kern.

3D-printed bodyform full bucket seat in the Mission R

The new Porsche Mission R, which has just celebrated its world premiere at the IAA Mobility motor show, also features a 3D-print bodyform full bucket seat.

Extensive offering with some availability for the front passenger

The 3D-printed bodyform full bucket seat is available for all Porsche models that are offered with the conventional full bucket seat (order number Q1K or P11). The seat can also be retrofitted in vehicles that have already been delivered, and some models can even have the full bucket seat fitted on the passenger side. The price per seat is 2,677.50 euros1.
