I am 6'1...Currently 180lbs and its very comfortable for me.

My cousin had a 1997 model and he was 6'4 225lbs and it was fine for him as well.

It seems to me there is more wiggle room in the driver side area as opposed to the passenger side.

Anyone else notice that?

I am 6'2" and 275lbs - no problem fitting. But I can see a wider person having a snug fit in the "Standard" 987 S seats that I have due to the bolsters.

I'm 6' and have no problems with headroom or anything else. Although, I do wish for more leg room on 8+ hour road trips.
