The Porsche Office Chair RS: Porsche’s Tribute to the Working Fan

Article by Christian A., on April 5, 2016

The Porsche 911 R was one of the stars during the recently held 2016 Geneva Motor Show. This six-speed manual rear-wheel drive sports car is powered by a 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine. With 500 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque, the 911 R can sprint from 0 to 62 miles per hour in just 3.8 seconds and has a top speed of 201 mph. It is currently sold for more or less $195,000 (£136,901 to be exact).

911 R makes it to the list of must-buys of true adrenaline junkies, Porsche fans and sports car collectors. While the Porsche 911 R has all the attributes that diehard fans of the German automaker want, the $195,000 price tag may be too high for the average person. For those who are still saving up or simply want to collect anything from Porsche, you could consider getting a part of this beautiful creation.

This is where things get interesting for Porsche fans as they can get a chance to experience the feel riding a Porsche 911 R without actually having one in the garage. The German automaker has just recently released the Porsche Office Chair RS, an office chair with a Porsche twist. In its promotional video, the Office Chair RS is described as “the original Porsche 911 sports seat.”

The chair looks identical with that of the chair fitted in its models. In fact, it’s made of the same leather and Alcantara material used by the brand. It also has an exclusive Porsche crest embossed on the headrest as proof of its authenticity. Porsche’s Office Chair RS has a fully adjustable seat height that makes every sitting position comfortable.

It also has 3D-adjustable armrests that can go up and down to suit its users’ preference. What’s even cooler is that it has an electronically adjustable backrest powered by a rechargeable battery. Another practical feature is the jacket hook at the back portion of the chair.

And for optimal traction, the Office Chair RS is designed with five castors. It’s basically an office chair that has been given a touch of Porsche. The Office Chair RS is currently priced at $6,570 – around the same cost as a Porsche 944.

One might be able to drive a 944 but it won’t be the same 911 R feels as sitting in the Office Chair RS. It seems pricey for an office chair but hey, this is a PORSCHE office chair we’re talking about. For those who are looking for something that is less expensive but still Porsche, they also have a regular office chair that costs for about $5,690 and still looks the same as the RS. But to the Porsche fan, it’s all in the details.
