Will there be a ventilated seats option on the Model S? I don't see one on the options page.
The Model S Signature edition has perforated leather but none of the trim levels offer "ventilated" (cooled) seats.
With that said the Model S does offer the ability to run the A/C when you're not in the car so that it will be cool when you get into it.
Slightly related topic. I wanted to know if I chose the Leather option is it perforated leather? From the Options page, it appears that
Model S (Production): No
Model S (Perf): No
Model S Sig: Yes
Model S Sig (Perf): No
Having had both perforated and non-perforated leather in my previous cars, I prefer the perforated leather much better. I wonder why only one model has perforated leather? I wish all of them were .... or having an option to chose. They are all Nappa, heated and are 12 way adjustable though. In my opinion if they are heated, they should also be perforated.
Maybe it is just me. Perhaps someone can explain it?
Agreed. Perforated is my preference as well.
I absolutely loved the air-conditioned seats in my M45 back in the day. I keep holding out hope that the Model S seats we've seen to date are just placeholders. Most importantly, the uni-body construction that does away with an adjustable headrest is odd to me. But there are other small concerns such as the apparent looseness of the leather and insufficient side bolstering. The seats seem almost flat.
Here is a photo of the M seat that I enjoyed so much:
Again, I am optimistic that a final seat design is still in the works.
Me too. I plan on owning this car for many years to come and I pray/hope the seats are not one place Tesla will skimp on.
Perforated are more expensive and decay more quickly. They are also softer.
On the Roadster Elon was obsessive about the seats.
Actually, 3 of the 4 are perforated seats:
Model S (Production): No (Optional w/ Nappa package)
Model S (Perf): Yes (Nappa standard)
Model S Sig: Yes (Nappa standard)
Model S Sig (Perf): Yes (Nappa standard)
cooled seats aren't an option because you can pre-cool the cabin with your smart phone.
Where are you seeing perforated for the Perf and Sig Perf?
I only see it in the Sig column, in the Interiors section of the P&O page.
The Performance variants add "Alcantara bolsters", and I assume you will still get the perforated Nappa leather in the center of the seat as I saw on the Beta models.
You know what happens when you assume...
Read half the posts in this forum and you'll quickly realize that assuming almost always causes someone to be upset. I'd prefer to stick with facts (or at least official statements) when making assertions.
I so desperately wanted to make that assumption ... but thought better of it.
In my early years so many mistakes were made from the ass.u.me thingy, it got drilled
into my head now
My first boss used to say "assumptions are the mothers of all ****ups!" Then again, he was one of the most cautious and thorough attorneys that I've ever met.
:-( How much more quickly? I plan to keep this car going as long as possible.... Do I want to throw a towel over the seat?
If you don't abuse them they'll last you a good long time...the last 3 Lexus's that I've had all had ventilated, perforated leather seats...no sign of wear at all after 4 years...they looked new.
I don't live in CA though...maybe you folks get more UV deterioration?
In California a car is just getting broken in after 4 years. Lots of people around here keep a high-end car for 20! Even if you don't keep it - it is likely someone will be driving it 15-20 years later.
