This thread makes me

Back in 1996 I had 2 sets or original RS seats out of a couple RSCS's that were run in Porsche Cup in Australia. I paid less than $1500 for both pairs. They were essentially brand new as they were pulled from the car and replaced with proper CF race seats. I put one pair in a car I had and kept the others in storage.

I ended up selling the car, pulling the seats out and sold both pair for $1000 each..... To think if I had only kept them I could have retired

Super cool!

Questions for the seat gurus:
1. How do you thread the factory seat belts through the side-hole in these buckets?
2. How do you attach the factory seat belt receptacle to the seat/rails?


Thanks!

From the RL Classifieds:
u7t2p7's "964 OEM Speedster Seats:"

Location (Region): NorthEast
Item Condition: Used

Porsche 964 OEM Speedster Seats. Black/White. Uber rare. Overall good condition. Complete with brackets. Made by Recaro for Porsche. Can also be used for 993. Very similar but slightly different construction to 964RS/993RS seats. I looked for 5 years before finding these seats. Would benefit from a good cleaning/conditioning before installing but otherwise in great shape. Stored in Hoboken, NJ area. $6,500 firm. Prefer local pick up so seats can be examined in person to properly manage expectations but will consider shipping.

Hey,

Selling my Recaro A8s Version 2s.

Back story:
I bought a set of Recaro A8s. One seat was a Version 2 and the other was a Version 1. To convert the Version 1 into a V2 I had to buy a spare Recaro SRD seat and swap the bottom and replace the bottom of the V1 to turn it into a V2. After I finished that little project, I got the seat reupholstered at a shop called New Image Interior and got them to reupholster the seats in Black leather and White Recaro Stitching. One seat was back was previously painted Silver and I left it like that and one is factory Black.

My asking price is $3800 obo. You guy's know how rare these seats are. If you're interested please PM me or email me at [email protected]

Enough talk, here are the pictures:

Default seat brackets

Does anyone know where I can get the bracket and slider for the oem speedster recaro seats? I have a pair of these and would like to use them in my 964 but when I bought them, they didn't come with the mounting hardware.

3 things:

1. I've never seen a picture of a set of A8s in Yellowbird. And while I've seen pictures of a RS2 with A8s, I'm pretty sure they came stock with different Recaro seats. Maybe A8s were optional?
2. I don't think these could have possible been the last production year as they have the earlier (easily cracked) series 1 bases before they changed to the SRD base.
3. Damn. These have gotten expensive.

Are 993 Clubsport seats just Recaro SPGs like the 964 N/GT? Does anyone have the PET for these?
