Fitting 996 sports seats into a 993


Recommended Posts

I have been searching high and low thru different Porsche forums, talking to many techs and NOBODY yet can give me a straight answer! I'm trying my luck here......

I know there are few things to deal with.......

1) The actual size of the seats.......Are the 996 sport seats the same size as the 993 sport seats?

2) I believe the electric connectors are different? If so, can it be modified to work?

3) Would the seat rail on the 996 fit onto the 993? Would it change the seat height?

Thanks for ANY information in advance!

In the Porsche parts catalog there are separate section(s) for seats. There is a section for seats for 1985 - 1998 944/968/911/928 and there is another section for 1997 on 986/996/Cayenne/987/997. I had a look and almost all of the 996 seat parts are 996 numbers so something obviously changed from the 993.

Will they fit? I doubt you will know unless you try - all parts list indications say no. You might try Brey-Krause or Recaro (seats) or Sparco (seats). They might know for sure.
