Porsche is a premium sports car brand that has been in the business of making some of the world’s best cars since 1949, but which Porsche has more than 2 seats? The first 2+2 sports car Porsche introduced was the 911 which is still being made and is the most desirable and iconic Porsche model to date.
The first “true” Porsche four-seater was the Cayenne SUV which was introduced in the early 2000s. The Porsche Panamera followed a few years later, and the Porsche Macan was first introduced in 2015. A few years ago, Porsche also introduced their very first full-on electric car called the Taycan which is also a four-seater, four-door car.
Even though the 911 technically does offer four seats, the rear seats on the 911 were never really intended for passengers because they are too cramped. The Cayenne, Panamera, Taycan, and the Macan are spacious enough to easily accommodate four adults and can be considered true four-seater Porsche models.
Some reports are even suggesting that Porsche is soon going to reveal a full-size flagship seven-seater luxury SUV in order to compete with the likes of the BMW X7 and the Mercedes Benz GLS-Class.
Porsche SUVs – The Cayenne and the Macan
As mentioned in the beginning, the Porsche Cayenne and the Porsche Macan are two four-seater cars that can truly accommodate four adults without any issues. The Cayenne is the largest available Porsche SUV which means that it is also more spacious than the Macan. The Cayenne is available in two variants, a more regular SUV, or a Coupe SUV with a sloping roofline.
The Porsche Cayenne starts at $72,000 for the entry-level Cayenne while the most expensive, most exclusive, and most powerful Cayenne model ever, the Cayenne Turbo GT, costs an astonishing $189,000. The entry-level Cayenne offers 335hp while the Cayenne Turbo GT offers 300hp more. If you want space, utility, style, and performance in an SUV, the Cayenne is the way to go.
However, if you want something a tad bit more sensible, but almost equally as practical, the Porsche Macan is also a great option. The Macan starts at $57,500 and offers 261hp while the range-topping Macan GTS comes with an $83,000 price tag and 435hp.
Both of these are practical and spacious, but the Cayenne offers more of everything.
Porsche Sedans – The Panamera and the Taycan
If you are more of a sedan type of guy, you should focus your attention on either the Panamera or the Taycan. The Panamera is a four-door sedan aimed at combining the dynamics of a 911 with the practicality of a true flagship four-door sedan. The Panamera starts at $92,000 for the 325hp regular Panamera.
The most-expensive Porsche Panamera model is the $207,000 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid with 690hp. The Panamera can also be had in either a more standard sedan form, or in Sport Turismo form which prioritizes practicality and makes the Panamera an extremely practical family car.
However, if you want something more modern, the Porsche Taycan is the most modern, newest, and likely the most talked-about Porsche at the moment. The Taycan starts at $87,000 for the 402hp entry-level Taycan while the top trumps Taycan Turbo S Cross Turismo costs $190,000 and is the most expensive Porsche EV.
These two are both true four-seater, four-door cars that excel in family-hauling duties. Therefore, if you prefer sedans over SUVs, these two are your best bet.
Porsche 911 – A 2+2 four-seater
As mentioned in the beginning, the Porsche 911 is technically also a four-seater, even though the 911 rear seats are not all that usable. Most 911 owners use the rear seats only in a pinch for shorter distance journeys as anyone over five feet tall is going to struggle.
The Porsche 911 starts at $101,200 and offers 380hp while the range-topping Turbo S costs $207,000 in coupe form and almost $220,000 in convertible form. The good thing about the 911 is that it comes in a few different variations, a coupe, a Targa, a speedster, or a regular convertible.
The least spacious out of these is undoubtedly the Targa model as the rear glass intrudes into the rear-seat space way too much. The most comfortable four-seater Carrera is likely the convertible as it offers you unlimited headspace.
Which Porsche has only 2 seats?
There are quite a few Porsches that only come with 2-seats. The Porsche Boxster/Cayman is only available with two seats exclusively, the 918 Spyder is a 2-seater, and the Carrera GT is a 2-seater. The truth is that most Porsche models are 2-seaters because Porsche only started offering mainstream four-seater cars with the release of the Cayenne.
The only current Porsche two-seat models are the Boxster and the Cayman which means that Porsche currently offers five four-seater cars and only two two-seater cars.
Which Porsche four-seater is best?
It depends on what you want from a car. If you prefer a dynamic driving experience and you don’t care too much about the rear seats, the 911 is the best. If you want the cheapest, but still thoroughly desirable model, the Macan is the perfect choice as it feels like a true Porsche inside and out.
For those who prefer cross-continental journeys in utter style, comfort, and excellence, the Panamera or the Taycan are the best. Lastly, if you want a large commanding SUV that can do absolutely everything you throw at it, the Cayenne is the best.
Why does Porsche offer so many four-seater cars?
Most people think that four-seater Porsches are not what Porsche is known for, and that’s true, but the Porsche Cayenne virtually saved the brand because it sold so well. Therefore, Porsche offers a lot of four-seater cars because people want them. The Panamera, the Cayenne, and the Macan are the three best-sold Porsches anyway.
Even though Porsche is primarily a sports car brand and the 911 is the staple Porsche model, Porsche four-seaters are selling left and right because prefer them over cramped 2-seater, 2-door sports cars that can only do one thing.
