Default GTS Seats Comfortable?

I know, sounds like a silly question but hear me out. I have a 991.2 Targa GTS and I wanted to buy an office chair made out of a 991.2 Turbo, all leather; however, the seller has a Pana GTS seat/chair with alcantara - anyone know how they compare? Comfy? I suppose it is but I have back issues and the nearest dealers do not have any cars with them to sit in. I suppose it will be fine but I still want to get an opinion or two.

I’m also concerned about comfort as well as durability over time. Does the alcantara handle accidental spills and dirt well?

The seats in the Panamera seem to hold up very very well. I would think the deep bucket design is going to be tough to deal with as an office chair. Do you intend to keep the power adjusting features? I'm assuming the GTS has the adaptive seats, so that is what you're looking at. The Alcantara stuff is going to wear and clear fairly easy, and there is no reason you couldn't use Kiwi boot/shoe waterproofing spray on it to protect from stains.

Yes, the adjustments will still have power. I am using a 996 seat as a chair now and the bolsters are fine but the Pana appears to have deeper ones.

Head support isn't adjustable either and that inset angle might be a little odd. They are pretty comfortable seats though, and if you keep the power adjustments, I could probably live with it! I mean keep the heating function too.
