The Porsche LWB are fine, the seats don't fold nor tilt back, it is a very upright driving position. There is plenty of headroom with a helmet, and in the EVO I believe it is less which is not an issue for me. The padding on the Porsche buckets was dismally thin and hurt my back. I ordered new memory foam inserts which are 2 1/2" thick and made the longer drives doable.would love to hear thoughts here too. I thought the porsche buckets were fine. Wouldn’t say comfy but fine. found a car with race seats which make be more akin to the lwb since they are both fixed. I think the sport seats have a redline capability
Plus your comfort seats are heated? Would be key living in New England.I love the look of the sport seats and would have preferred them on my car, mainly for the extra room and looks, but after spending time sitting in both they are not as comfortable. They are similar to the race seats that were in my 488 and after a long day of driving my back would be feeling it
I find more comfortable and easier to get in and out of as well. You have 6 adjustments to make it perfect for your body type. They also seem to be much easier on my back muscles. The race seats are hard these are not at all. I wouldn’t have the race seats for any reason.I love the look of the sport seats and would have preferred them on my car, mainly for the extra room and looks, but after spending time sitting in both they are not as comfortable.

Another concern I have is the sport seats only come in one size, which seems very wide for my narrow behind, I seem to slide a bit, the shoulder bolsters fit great. They do look great in a Spyder. I have a little time to decide, my SA estimated July delivery and middle of March to lock the build.I have the sport seats and coming from the comfort seats, to my amazement the sport seats are not only MORE comfortable than the comfort seats, but they also give me more leg and head room. If you have the option to get them, don’t hesitate! You’ll love them. Lots of adjustments as well.
@Itsagoodday, that is an important question though have you had a chance to try the Sports Seats at a dealership yet? Many of the new EVOs are being specced with the Sports Seats by the dealerships so it shouldn't be that hard to find one to try out.GREAT timing on this thread.
I am looking at a few cars and I LOVE the look of sport seats, but am worried also about the fit.
I am not a tall guy, but I am fairly fit. 5'9 but close to 49" chest makes me nervous since my back is by far the biggest part of my body. But I am narrow through the waist etc.
I hear people all the time talking about discomfort of 'normal' seats in a Gallardo, and I have zero comfort issues. I would not mind even a more 'snug' fit across the back which I am guessing the sport seats would have.
Anybody be able to say if having some muscular development might make sport seats a no-go?
The wife likes the look of the Sport seat, she has better vision forward, and comfort was a little firmer she noticed. I don’t necessary look long term, since most cars I only own for a few years.@Tanman88 we are all different and, as you know, the seat choice will be critical for long term enjoyment of the the EVO. If you get a chance, if you haven't already, compare both seats options at the dealership and choose on that basis. Bottom line, if the comfort seats work better for you than that's the ticket. If your wife is into sports cars and it's a hobby you both share it probably would be prudent to let her test them out as well. Let us know what you decide, and if you chose the Sports seats, your impressions. Best of luck!
