I am looking to purchase a 2009 leftover 911. The car is equipped with sport bucket seats. Other than the weight savings (which is not a big deal to me), can any one give me an opinion of pros and cons?

The only adjust front and back. Not heated, no lumbar adjust, no height adjustment, nice and firm once your in them but a little tricky getting in and out. Not sure how they will fare on long trips??

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks...

Sorry I didn't see your post sooner. In the event this info is still relevant, I have the sport bucket seats in my 2009 Carrera S. Let me just say that if you fit in them, they are great; very supportive and comfortable even for long trips. (I drove my car for 2 weeks in Europe after taking factory delivery). I am 6'2" and 185 lbs and not too wide so I fit perfectly with an excellent driving position despite the seats lack of full adjustability. If you are a bigger person, you would probably find the seats too confining for long stints. I retrofitted GT3 seats to my '99 996 so I have the entry/exit drill down.

The weight savings over the standard seats is around 50 pounds, even more when compared to a full power seat with lumbar, heat etc. This is equivilant to an additional 5-6 free horsepower, not insignificant when you figure Porsche wants almost $17K for a 23hp power kit option. Besides they look terrific!

I agree with the previous posts ...... great chairs once you are in them but a b1tch to get out of and i am fit active guy...... still have to be a contortionist to get out of the seat.

I just had a week in England , many miles and no aches or pains ... they are comfortable and perfect for fast ' enthusiastic ' driving......... might need an optional set for normal everyday use though ......!
