GT2 or Carrera GT seat Pricing...

Hi

Does anyone know how much a pair of GT2 or CGT seats will be?

Or does anyone know of any good replicas?

Thanks

Why not the GT3 seats for $2600?

They're nice but I don't like the width of the headrest area compared with the GT2 & CGT seats

I think these look THE best.

The voices in your head tell you to BUY IT.

Thats exactly my thoughts but I bought them anyway and the look real darn good in the boxster. Once you take a corner with GT3 seats your never going to want to be in stock seats again

Yeah the less expensive option "GT3 Seat" is well worth the price. I used my bosses GT3 seat for the autocross and MY GOD i didnt want to give it back.

I've thought about one of these recovered with proper Savanah Beige leather.

I like the Sparco's.

Wonder how much for re-covering them in matching leather will cost.

These look pretty nice...

I figure $1000 per. Even so that's a good deal compared to any Porsche seat. I'm sure you could even have them customized, like pretty emboidered Porsche logos on the head rests or something allow those lines.

Those GT3/GT2 seats already comes with rails so it's a direct bolt-on.

When you buy any Sparco/Recaro/Momo seats, rails are extra.

Well, unless the rails cost $7000 I think that a set of leather upolstered Sparco's are still cheaper and a darn nice seat.

I would look at the Recaro's. I have a set of SPG's that live in my car for the track season and I love them. I am thinking of having them recovered in Alacantra this winter... while not as slick as the new GT3 seats, I can probably find something else to do to the car for the $18,000 or so I am saving on the pair of seats.
