Porsche says when you check this option that it mounts it on the drivers side, but my 2014 Cayman S came from Germany with it on the the passenger's side.

I am happy either way but would like to know if you ordered this option what side it is on in your car.

Thanks!

That's interesting. I just went to the Porsche web site and you are right that it does say "drivers" seat....but we know that it comes installed on the right seat. I suspect that this description was orginally written for the UK cars and was just cut and pasted into the US configurator.

Clearly they mean you can reach it from the drivers seat. The driver's belt has a release mechanism that kicks in when someone shouts out "OH **** GEORGE, IT'S FIRE!!!"

So I am not the only one. I think you are correct. "Driver's seat" UK reference makes perfect sense.
I am glad we driver in the left seat. I would not want the FE on the driver's side.

Years ago I had a 5 series BMW that came with a fire extinguisher. It was under the driver's seat. I guess they did it that way because it was a long reach to get to an extinguisher under the passenger seat.

Just curious, but why do so many of you need a fire extinguisher? Does the car really catch fire that often and if so, under what circumstances? I thought car fires were very rare.

back in the 987.1 days the power steering hose would leak and catch on fire.. or the the power steering would overheat in racing conditions
