Will Boxster seats fit in a 911?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced 996 seats with Boxster 986 seats? Are the seats the same size and shape? I have a 2000, 996 with worn seats and found a pair of seats from a 2002, 986 S that look very similar. I am wondering if I could at least replace the leather with the Boxster leather.

Loren, Thank you for the help. I purchased the Boxster seats and used the leather and cushions to replace my worn ones. Everything fits and looks great, and cost much less than other options. I only made the stupid mistake of turning the car on with the seat removed - now I need to shell out $100 to reset the airbag light.

I know this is an old thread, but perhaps you have some input here in regards to putting 996 electric seats (no memory) in to a 986 that has only electric recline, but manual height and fore/aft sliding adjustments. 


I'm told that these seats are interchangeable with a simple unplug/plug of the wiring harness and bolts for the seats. I'm also told that seats with memory function are not easily interchangeable with non-memory function seats, but can be done.  Anyone know these statements to be true or false?
