For most of its range, it has the iconic 911 2+2 seating set-up, where the driver and front passenger seats are accompanied by two more compact seats behind. There are future 911 fans all over the world whose love affair for Porsche began when peering out of the window from these seats.

With its track-focused origins, the Porsche 911 GT3 has no rear seats, unlike the Carrera, Targa and Turbo models in the 911 range
While the 911 Carrera, Targa and Turbo Porsche sportscar models have the 2+2 arrangement, there are a clutch of models which are proper two-seaters too. The high-performance 911 GT3 and GT3 RS, as well as the new 911 Dakar, with its sporty off-road capabilities, have driver and passenger seats only for weight-saving purposes.Number of seats in a Porsche 911 (by model)*• Porsche 911 Carrera: 2+2 seats• Porsche 911 Targa: 2+2 seats• Porsche 911 Turbo: 2+2 seats• Porsche 911 Sport Classic: 2+2 seats• Porsche 911 GT3 range: 2 seats• Porsche 911 GT3 RS: 2 seats• Porsche 911 Dakar: 2 seatsHow many seats does the Porsche 718 have?The first Porsche to be given the 718 moniker, the 718 RSK, was a striking mid-engined racecar built between 1957 and 1962 which was based on the Porsche 550A. The location of its engine gave it great balance at high speeds and when cornering. It’s something that can equally be said of the Porsche sportscars that today carry the 718 name – the 718 Cayman, convertible 718 Boxster and 718 Spyder roadster. Just like their track-conquering predecessor, all three are pure two-seaters.

It was 2019 when the Taycan arrived as the first fully electric Porsche sports saloon. As well as its outstanding electrified performance, the Taycan is practical too. All models come equipped with a 4+1 seating layout. This set-up includes a rear bench seat to accommodate a third rear passenger. Further forward, the low seating position and a cockpit-style dashboard that wraps around the driver enhances the sporty characteristics of the Taycan saloon. In 2021, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo arrived. Offering more headroom for rear passengers, courtesy of its modified roof line, its large tailgate gives easier access to the rear luggage compartment. Like the rest of the fleet, the standard 4+1 configuration means that the rear sports a smaller, foldable centre seat

A car with great driving dynamics as well as in-built practicality, it too is available in a 4 or 4+1-seat set-up.
