    Sport Seats

    Hi,

    Is it possible, that the siting position from the porsche sport seats is higher than the standard seats?
    Does anyone of you guys have any idea?
    I changed a longer while ago from standard seats to sport seats, but since then I'm not getting rid of the feeling that the siting position is higher, than with the standard seats.

    some experiences?

    Re: Sport Seats

    My experience is quite the opposite
    Compared to the OE seats in my Carrera, the Sportsseats in the TT go way lower, which is much more appropriate for the hard driving.

    Re: Sport Seats

    I'd think the sports seats are actually lower.

    Re: Sport Seats

    They are the same height.
    The fully electrically adjustable seats are higher than the normal seats, though. This is because of all the electric motors.

    as far as i remember there was this option available for the 996 range that your seat gets less cushion (in german: "abgepolsterte sitze") -- for people with great body height. so maybe your original seat "included" this option, and your sport seat does not.

    Re: Sport Seats

    i have a friend who has a 996TT

    he wants to retrofit sports seat from standard seat

    is it possible??

    Re: Sport Seats

    The wiring should be an easy disconnect and then the seats should unbolt and the Sports seats bolt right back in place. I saw it done with a C4S.

    Re: Sport Seats

    there is no substitute for sport seats. Granted they have a manual seat sdjustment, but IMHO you actually get a greater range than the elec stock seats. The fit is better for me and I have a big butt!

    Re: Sport Seats

    I think sport seat is better than the standard seat, I had it in my 996TT and going to be in my Cayman S too.

    Yes - very easy.
    He may as well consider the leather or Nomex covered OE racing seats ("Clubsport" option when you buy new). They are awesome seats for the hard driving .

    Re: Sport Seats

    Chris how do you go from a 996TT to a Cayman S ?
