This Single-Seat Porsche 911 Cabriolet Is on Sale in Georgia Right Now
Perfect for you and the zero friends you’ll have once they see what a bastardized Porsche you own.
Have you been searching for a new Porsche, but your antisocial lifestyle means you have no need for the passengers’ seats found in most cars? Well, worry no longer, friend. Right this moment, your ideal car is waiting for you in Georgia—a Porsche 911 Cabriolet with only one seat.
This 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, which CarFax lists as currently on sale in Roswell, Georgia, for an asking price of $53,491, has—for reasons entirely unbeknownst to us—been outfitted with a custom interior featuring a centrally-mounted driver’s seat. Other than moving the command chair to the center of the car, the interior seems pretty close to stock; the original instrument panel and center console are still present, albeit moved to starboard in concert with the original seat. The pedals, the steering wheel, even the PDK shift lever all look pretty much just the way they did when this 997-generation Porsche 911 rolled off the factory floor. (The modifier did take the step of moving the shifter back in order to make room for a Big Gulp-scale cupholder, which probably tells you something about the owner’s priorities.
Technically speaking, this Porsche still has its rear plus-two seats, making it something of a McLaren F1 homage. But unlike the famed Macca, the placement of the driver’s seat and the center right-mounted console largely leg-blocks the rear seat passengers, leaving the back better suited for amputees and small-to-medium-sized dogs.
We checked the 911’s CarFax report for any clear information as to which of this car’s four owners may have decided to toss the shotgun seat in favor of a faux fighter jet layout, but to no avail. However, given your humble author’s past experience with the custom car world and its assorted cultures…
...I’m gonna guess this happened while the car lived in Florida.
