Post Driver height restriction?
Hi All,
New here, and hoping someone can give an opinion to help out. I'm 6'8" tall, and hoping to fit into a 928S4, but haven't found one to sit in yet. Is there any hope for me to fit comfortably in the driver seat?? How much headroom is lost when the sunroof option is included? And, are there any aftermarket seats that are lower than the stock seats to help gain headroom?

Thanks,
BigAl1

Hi Big Al :)

I myself is 6'4" and I've got plenty (!) of headroom. The factory seats can be adjusted in 8 or even 12 directions, and will suit even the largest of fellas. Please note that mine is a no-sunroof car. Plenty of room for legs, and I have no problem operating the pedals with my 31 centimeter long feet. I think that equivalates to a US size 14?

Hope you fit, 'cause these are one of the greatest sportscars that can hold large frames, as opposed to say a Ferrari of similar vintage, which seems to be tailored for the tiny Italian Signori ;)

Thanks for the hope! I previously built an Ultima GTR and managed to wedge myself into it, so I'm willing to compromise a little.
Anybody else really tall that fits ok?

I'm not that tall, but do find my helmet touching the roof when racing, so I'd recommend a non-sunroof car for you.
Also remember that the floor comes with 4 sets of bolt holes, so the seats can easily be unbolted and moved further back so you can still slide the seat in a range that suits you.
