    GT3 seats

    Sat in a GT3 today, very nice car, beautiful exhaust note I thought.
    One major problem though, I don't fit in the Seats.
    This is ridiculous as I am not particularly broad, ok, I play rugby and work out, but really not huge, and the buckets are very narrow, much more than the ones on the Stradale, and not only that, with Ferrari, you can chose betweem three different sizes for the buckets seats, why not with Porsche?
    This is compromising for a lot of big guys. Shame...
    As a not, I felt the same in the sports seats, my shoulders are pushed forward but the shoulders extension and hence I feel on seat on the seat as opposed to in it.
    Or is this the way it's supposed to be? I mean, Rohrl seems to be a pretty guy himself?
    Anyway, very comfortable seats but just reallly narrow.

    Re: GT3 seats

    I sat in one in the US a couple of months ago, I'm 5'11 and about 185 (before the holidays) and fit fine, but we don't have the cool Euro seats.

    This was a silver/black GT3 at a dealer, really beautiful car. Took a bunch of digital photos, but as usual I can't find them.

    Happy Holidays.

    I'm 6'2" and 220 lbs. I fit fine in mine and find them very comfortable. You don't want to slide around in a seat and you won't in the GT3 seat. I like them better than the standard Sport seats that came with the car.

    I agree about sports seats, all they offer over the standard seats is on easthetic only, they actually don't provide better support at all.
    The bucket seats are nice and I know you're not supposed to slide around in them, it's just that they pushed my shoulders forward big time, shame...
    The Ferrari ones were much more comfy for my broadness.
    I think the Porsche one are Recaro. Are the Ferrari one Sparco? I think I saw them too on the VW R32.
