Unsure of new back seat size but are you sure it’s not because of the lack of a cage?

I noticed in both my 991.1 gt3 and rs that the seat stops against the left roll bar.

I’m 6-2 and 210 lbs so I need all the room I can get and fortunately there is plenty in the 991.1 version.

Sorry probably apples to oranges,
I just remember driving the cars without the bar and stretching out my legs and after putting in the cage noting how much it restricts how far it moves.

My .2 GT3 RS seat slides so far back that I can't touch the pedals at 5'11".

I figured it out.
it was the re lining pieces Fromm Autoquest.
Still don’t quite understand the amount of leg room it creates but I’ll take it.

I noticed more leg room in the .2 GT3 as well.
The seats seem to go back further yet they aren’t as close to the roll bar as the 991.1 GT3

Both my seats hit the roll bar now, so I taped the roll bar to protect the seats.
I was pretty comfortable
After working on setup yesterday in a Lizard at Sebring I am excited to pickup the new car in March I will put in these seat recliners for ED.
