Is it possible to fold down the rear seat on Taycan? The topgear test film states it’s not possible??

If you go with the standard 2 rear seat setup, the rear seats fold 60/40.
If you go with the 2+1 rear seat setup, then you get 40/20/40 fold down that the video showed.

As you can see, the 'third seat' in the rear is completely useless. All you really get is a seatbelt.

I'm not sure, but I think there is an airbag for the third seat...

Mainly agree with you Vim. Getting the 2+1 rear seat option is mainly just getting the third seat-belt. Though, without the option, it is a storage cubby with a hard plastic holder, versus a cushioned raised seat. I did end up ordering with the 2+1 rear seat option, for once a year emergency need to seat 3 in the back and for having the ski pass-through.

partially-folded-down right rear seat, as viewed today from the trunk area in a Taycan Turbo S this afternoon at a dealership here...

Yes, there is a fair amount of room with the fold-down seats offered on every Taycan. I checked and you can fit a racing bike without the front wheel in the trunk easily.

..or an option to buy the car. I have 3 kids - we rarely travel together in my car - but we had a similar +1 seat in a BMW GranCoupe and it was perfectly doable for the kids. Anyway if they are in the back of a Porsche, the right to enjoy the ride and not to speak applies..
