981 Seats in a 986 - Do the Rails Match? Will the seats fit in the space?

Recommended Posts

I'd really like to put 981 seats in my 02 Boxster S. I am not looking for alternative solutions/opinions on this thread. I am looking to get to the root of how plausible this is. Please let me know if you have any knowledge that may help:

1. Will 981 seats bolt right into my 986? - Does anyone know if the seat bolt patterns are the same? 

2. The 981 is slightly bigger than the 986. I am wondering if the width, or depth of the seat backs may have issue clearing the console or roll bar. Im hoping someone has done this or seen pictures to let me know what might be involved in making these fit. (modifying console, roll bar, seat back casings etc.)

If anyone has any input at all on the logistics of doing a job like this, I'd appreciate it. With regards to the electrical, I do not need seat memory, and expect my Porsche customs shop can make the seat adjustments work. He was just not sure if anyone had successfully made these fit yet.
