  • You can option the 14-way seats on the S or the Turbo which are very supportive and not quite as confining as the 18-ways. The 14-way seats also offer thigh extension. Think of them as equal options. 14-way = comfort seats. 18-way = sport seats. 8-way = base seats.
  • If you don't spend $810 to get fully keyless entry/ignition, what do you get? Partly keyless entry/ignition?
  • Juddholl10 is correct. I test drove a Macan with 18- and another Macan with 14-way seats and found the 14-way less confining. With 14-ways you get the ability to extend the seat cushion for thigh support and the option to add the ventilated seats. Not sure you really need the extra adjustments the 18-ways provide but some drivers really love the 18-ways. Would definitely recommend sitting in all three versions of the seat before making your final selection. That is, if you can even find three Macans at any Porsche dealership these days! :)

    darthbimmer, the Macan comes standard with a key and fob that allows you to remotely open/lock the doors, but requires you to insert the key in the ignition to start the vehicle. The keyless entry comes with a dummy key, which stays in the ignition at all times (can be removed if needed) and all you need to have on your person is the fob; ouch the doors, they unlock; turn the dummy key in the ignition, the vehicle starts, etc.

  • Tested all three seats and landed on the 18 ways on ours. No regrets. I have a bad back and they are infinitely more comfortable than the other options. Add to that that they hold you in place during aggressive cornering. I'm hoping those buying this car are buying it for it's talents, not just it's badge :)
