In my experience, they looked way better but the standard seats were more comfortable.

I got the deal of the century several years ago, $1,500 for a pair.

The waist size of the target market definitely played a role. Especially since most of the cars were dealer ordered, not owner spec'ed. You don't want a 50 YO with a 38-40 waist trying to get inside a 911 with sport seats. It just ain't gonna happen. He'd be running to the Chevy dealer in a heartbeat.

That's a good point Tim. It is very interesting why sport seats were less common in the US.

I'll also say $6.5K no problem if in mint condition.

Appreciation ... I drove my car for about 5 years with the standard seats. Now have had the hardbacks for about 3 years. I would not have paid $6500 for them at the time I bought them but would not sell them for $7k today.

Maybe because most Americans are fat, and sport seats favor the not obese

^^^ Hahahahaha Totally true and unfortunate.

Regarding my seats, not for sale. Would have to purchase the car to get em.

Just curious on value that's all.

Thx,
Bryan
