Thanks Jńger for A8 post. Really interesting to read the stories of these old seats.

I have used my A8 seats for two years now and I have to admit that they are really comfortable and provide great support. They are also very light.

Mikke-- Glad you liked Recaro's write-up, sir.
I got to enjoy a RLer's A8s yesterday in his 993TT (with new rebuilt engine & larger turbos)
BTW, LUV your 964

Another RLer at the same event ^^ had these Recaro Sportsters in his 993.

They seem like a great solution for anyone interested in RS/Speedster/GT1/GT2 or Pole Position seats, with a bonus: adjustable seatbacks!

Anyone else familiar with them or seen them in a 993?

Jim ^^ Das ist gut!

Today a RLer told me he's tempted to sell his OEM 993 hardback sports seats for RS / Speedster seats.

A half-way solution:

Ebay.de's "1 x Recaro Schalensitz fŘr Porsche 964 RS und 911 RSR Sportsitz Leder" FS by 'porschefreunde-baden-baden' for €4,999 (~$5,500 USD); item #271828161719:

Default Hey thats me!

I have been pondering that for a bit now.

I saw that speed yellow no moon roof 993 RS at the porsche corral Laguna Seca 2010 with matter cage and the 993 rs seats painted to matchůamazing!

Saw your 993 speedster with a 964 speedster and a raw 550a spyder out side the vip tent. What a weekend that was.

I would have a hard time parting with the correct seats to my car. Bless the guy who ordered my car right.
PTS, sport seats, mo30/ and with limited slip and on a narrow body C4!

Wish we could have hooked up at cars and coffee to chat Jager!

Best regards, Dustin

I'd love to get a set of those Recaro Sportsters in my NB 993 coupe. I'd likely get the backs painted body color and the center seat panels in matching red to my OEM interior leather too.



or



If I only had a small fortune to devote to the slippery slope!

You're bringing back happy memories! From the the PCA Heritage Showcase on 'Porsche Island:'

My first Monterey experience with Porsches & RLers. Met many new friends there.

My Recaro Profi XL seats finally installed and I have driven with them.

Tall sides make them difficult to get in an out of for me.

I must say though, for a guy of my corpulent stature, these seats are MUCH more comfortable and supportive than my factory RS seats were.

Not only are they wider, but a major reason for the improved comfort (and safety) is that the shoulder belts don't come in below my shoulders as they do with Recaro Pole or factory RS seat.

51 pounds lighter than stock, standard seats.

Mounting hardware is from the Recaro catalog.

Possible additional source: the 968 CS had the same seats as the 964 RS, with a 944 part number. Same seat, different label. Had both, zero difference.
