In 2004 a good friend wanted a Prius like mine but also
wanted a driver-side seat like that in his Porsche. We
found one in a junkyard, ripped up, for $0.

It took a while to fabricate the adaptation between the
bottom of the recycled seat and the Prius. We included
the power system, wiring it to the car. The nav system
was undisturbed. Works fine.

This was when leather was not a Toyota option. We had
leather installed in his whole car, including the "odd"
seat. It all matches and looks fine - and his Prius has
a power seat!

Of course, you then give up the side airbag in the seat.

I'd considered the option (not Porsche, specifically), but decided that
losing an airbag wasn't a good compromise.

There was something in Priuschat a little while ago about Volvo seats in
a Prius:

(1) $,775 more for the Camry.
(2) 11 mpg less on the highway.

Of COURSE it's bigger, more powerful.  It's in a different class.

Why didn't they compare a Maybach to a Yaris?  BIG difference, there.
