Sport seats

The standard Sports seats are comfortable and provide support even when the car is driven hard into corners. The seat centres are finished in Alcantara. Electric backrest adjustment and manual height and fore/aft adjustment are integrated as standard.

Sport seats Plus

The optional Sports seats Plus are upholstered in smooth-finish leather. The side bolsters of the seat squab and backrest are more prominently defined and have a firmer, more sporty padding for even better lateral support. To help you find the optimum posture, the seats feature electric backrest adjustment and manual height and fore/aft adjustment.

Fully electric Sports seats

If you don’t want to sacrifice sportiness for comfort, the optional fully electric Sports seats offer fully electric adjustment of seat height, backrest angle, squab angle and squab depth. Also elec trically operated are the fore/aft adjustment, four-way lumbar support and even the steering column. The included memory package supports a range of settings, including both exterior mirrors and all driver’s seat and steering wheel positions.

Adaptive Sport seats Plus

For a stronger connection between sport and comfort, adaptive Sports seats Plus are available on request. These are an enhanced version of the distinctive Sports seats Plus with the added functionality of fully electric adjustment of both the seat and the side bolsters on the squab and backrest.

Sports bucket seats.*

Sports bucket seats are available as an option and feature a folding backrest, integrated thorax airbag and manual fore/ aft adjustment. The carbon surface finish conceals a seat shell in glass-/carbonfibre reinforced plastic.

Seat heating and ventilation

Seat heating is available as an option for all seats.** Seats are heated in the squab, backrest and side bolsters. In conjunction with seat heating, we can equip the seats (excluding Sports bucket seats) with seat ventilation on request. A slipstream effect is produced by active ventilation of the perforated seat centre and backrest and by passive aeration at the side bolsters. This evaporates perspiration moisture and therefore makes for a dry and pleasant seating environment, even in hot weather.

Child seats.*

A Boxster should be enjoyed by passengers of all ages. ISOFIX child seat preparation is available as an option and includes a deactivation function for the passenger airbag.

* Child seats are not compatible with Sports bucket seats.

** Seat heating available for Sports bucket seats from 10/2013 at the earliest.
