A seat can make or break your happiness with a car. Everyone has been for a ride in a seat that shouldn’t exist, and it makes us wonder how automotive suppliers can still make uncomfortable products in 2017. Back in the 60’s, Porsche wanted better the best seats in the industry, so they purchased Reutter Carosserie-Werke. The company that built the bodies of the Porsche 356, their interior department was renamed Recaro and they have built seats for everyone over the years. Yesterday Porsche uploaded another assembly video for the new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series, and I was taken aback by the signs above each station. Instead of Recaro, the new Porsche 911 seats are a joint venture between Lear Corporation and Porsche.
Lear Corp. is an American OEM manufacturer that was founded by Bill Lear. The genius behind 8-track tapes and the Lear Jet, Mr. Lear invented & patented over 120 items that are commonplace in the modern world. Chevrolet and other GM divisions have used Lear interiors for decades, and the quality speaks for itself. It is a strange world we live in, now that Cadillac and Corvette have optional Recaros and the Porsche 911 has Lear as their top-level supplier. the global competition supports comfy butts everywhere. Leather is not an easy material to work with, which is why it takes an artist to get it right. These are just one of the details of why the latest 911 Turbo S is such a work of art.
