Is there a modification to raise the seats?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2011 997-2 GT2 RS.(#398). I'm 5'11" yet feel like I'm sitting in a hole. Anyone know of an aftermarket seat riser/seat track spacer? I realize there is a dynamic trade-off in moving 175 pounds higher in the car, but I'd sacrifice that for better visibility.

I'm more familiar with these seats and the adaptive sport seats than any man should be. I can tell you that there is no easy way to raise either type of seat. However, you might gain a 1/2" in height on your seats simply by pulling up the bottom cushion and putting some extra padding under it. You'll need some velcro to do this right/safely.


I would recommend replacing your seats with the adaptive sport seats if you really need the height. Even at the lowest setting, the AS seats are higher than the GT3 style seats you have.
