It would appear that luxury car makers BMW and Porsche are trialling extra wide cars in order to cater for the growing backsides of their customers, according to The Register.






Don't get too smug, Mercedes are in on it as well.

About time, as much as I like Recaro seats, I don't own a Recaro backside.

Not always
They are at least 40 years behind Mercedes then .

Somewhere upstairs I have the brochures and options list for the W114/5 'New Generation' series , introduced in 1968 .

One of the options is " Reinforced driver's seat : for drivers of above average weight " .

Next , we'll have comments about stereotypical sausage guzzling and beer swilling Germans , no doubt .
