Buying Advice - what options are on this car?

I am looking at a 2011 Cayman S. According to the spec sheet it has standard leather seats and no steering wheel option. However, the car has a flat bottom steering wheel (no buttons) and the seats have a row of stitching down the middle. Is this the standard steering wheel? Is this the sport seats?
Secondly, the spec sheet shows a limited slip differential but not PVT. Was it possible to only get LSD in 2011, or does the car have PVT?

If you can get a photo of the option sticker under the frunk, you can compare the option codes against the 987 PET (parts diagrams) to see what all is actually there.

And also post pics.

Most of the 987s I've owned have the option sticker in the 1st page of the Maintenance manual, not on the frunk.

Don't believe Porsche had a flat bottom steering wheel, so it's probably aftermarket. Attach a pic.

Sport seats would have the shoulder wings.

Well that explains why my mom's '06 doesn't have one there, then. Thanks.

The limited slip differential is Porsche code 220. Was it possible to just get a LSD?
Here is a picture of the steering wheel.
Is this a standard steering wheel?
