These Are Porsche’s Five Most Iconic Seat Patterns

Porsche’s Top 5 series has taken us closer than ever before into the German marque and explored some of its greatest, and most secretive, vehicles. This latest episode is a little different.

As the title of the video suggests, this Porsche Top 5 video looks at the automaker’s most iconic seat patterns. Some are nice, some are horrible, and there are some which we didn’t even know existed. The clip features fashion stylist Ilaria Urbinati, head of interior design at Porsche, Ivo van Hulten, and designer colors and trim at Porsche, Cornelia Rosenbohm.

The fifth most iconic seat pattern featured are subtle yet stylish white pinstripes applied to the dark leather seats of a Porsche 928 S. For a vehicle from the early 1980’s, these seats look fantastic but we’re not sure they would look as good in a modern Porsche.

Next on the list are once again pinstripes, although this time the definition is slightly more broad. Shown in a 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Coupe painted white, the red and white seats certainly make for an interesting look.

In third, we have one of the most recognizable seat patterns which Porsche has made a name for itself with. This is the red and blue tartan pattern, displayed in a silver 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo lovingly known as ‘Louise’.

The next seat patterns are slightly overshadowed by the car they’re displayed in, a Porsche 901 from 1964. The seats have a very fine black and white chequered finish and look just as good now as they did half a century ago.

Last but not least are Porsche’s Pasha seats, combining two shades of blue to make for a sporty yet rustic look.
