As others have stated, that is not wear. Porsche seats are known to wear faster than other model cars, but it's a distinct rub mark or scuff that will appear on the bottom of the side bolster where your butt drags over the lower bolster getting in. Same part as you are showing, but a completely different wear pattern and all the way down at the bottom where the side bolster starts the curve toward the back of the seat.

That to me actually looks like fingernail scratches as in a driver that is reaching blindly over their left shoulder for the seatbelt but their nails are hitting the seat bolster in the process of grabbing for it. The angle of the scratches seems to match up with that movement as well.

That or someone in the family has something metallic on their clothing that is hitting as you get in or out. I cant tell from the photo resolution, however if you look closely enough in person you may be able to see which direction the "picks" in the leather surface are moving and determine if this damage was done by something sliding down into the car or when it was coming up out of the car. The direction of movement and damage might help to rule out a few things and diagnose exactly what is doing this damage.
