I havent seen any posted in a while. Like everything there is the asking price which is always stupid and the selling price which we rarely ever hear.

No reserve, always seem to sell, yet a few weeks later a set is miraculously back for sale...

ilko,

Was looking at these seats & wanted to pursue them..Supposedly the buyer of the last auction didn't pay. I Asked about there authenticity & he supplied a receipt from Porsche in Germany...
Still can't be sure if these are "Genuine OEM"

Fishy bidding on his listings and he canceled auctions twice in the last month. The two times they did 'sell' they sold to the same highest bidder with 18 feedback. Could be shill bids.

Amazed that these haven't sold yet:

They bolt into 964/993 with the Brey-Kraus adapters:

I have a question about the RS seats for all you RS and Speedster enthusiasts:

Currently at Ninemeister our work in progress includes two 9m64RS, a 9m93GT2 and a 9m93RSR, all of which we would prefer to finish with a pair of fixed back RS seats but are stuck with either the narrower SPG or wider Pole Position. Neither are ideal, hence I am now giving serious consideration to manufacturing an FIA approved, carbon fibre 9m RS seat.

The 9mRS seat will be visually identical to the RS seat but manufactured with a high quality carbon fibre shell with similar fire-proof cloth or black leather options. The seat belt holes will be trimmed with similar plastic ferrules, as per the original RS seats. As part of the production process we plan to submit samples of the carbon back for sled testing to achieve FIA approval, a process that our manufacturer has done many times before and is confident of passing.

At the moment the pricing is likely to be in the region of ú2195 per seat in cloth and ú2595 in black leather with the FIA approval, excluding taxes and shipping. We will be pricing up the runner and side bracket additions shortly.

So, the question I have is would anybody be interested in having these for their 964 or 993 projects and should I start my own thread with an exclusive Rennlist Group Buy? Answers on a postcard please to......

I am all for more OEM-like aftermarket solutions for the 964/993 community, but they have to be priced reasonably. I fear at the prices that you've quoted (without taxes, shipping, runners, or brackets included), you are going to have a very limited audience. For half the cost one could buy a new set of Recaro-brand FIA certified Pole Position seats, which look pretty good in these cars.

Alternatively for the OEM-like show cars there is a guy in Germany cranking out 993 hardback sport seats with or without carbon fiber backs at about $5500 USD for a pair. I believe that's including shipping, but I could be wrong.

Again I'd love to see more high quality aftermarket options out there. Perhaps with greater production numbers the unit price could come down further?

I hear where you are coming from, however what we are proposing here is a high end, carbon fibre 9m race seat to FIA standards, equivalent to a new Recaro Profi SP-A mass production seat which sells for ú2199 in the UK excluding mounts. There is simply no business sense in us trying to compete at the price level of the Pole Position, in fact we offer the PP as an option for the RS builds where the customer has a preference for cost.

Yes, start your own thread. This one is so long and cluttered, it won't reach the most customers
