Standard seats when rebuilt are reasonable comfortable but do not hold you very well in spirited driving as there are no side bolsters.

Whilst I do not own a Cobra seat I have sat in them and found them reasonably comfortable but relatively narrow. I am a slim build.

May I suggest you join DDK which is a UK based website specifically for early 911s and your question may get a fuller answer. You can join DDK for free or pay an optional subscription of £13.

Hi All,
I’m contemplating fitting some Cobra Stuttgart seats to my 1972 911T in place of the rather "tired” originals. These seats have apparently been designed specifically for the 911.
They’ll also hopefully offer some more comfort/support over the originals.
Sadly Cobra don’t have any outlets where I could try the seat for size and it’s not a cheap purchase so I’d like to try a seat before diving in. ( I have considered having my seats ‘rebuilt / refurbished but would like to see how much better ( or not) the Cobra seats would be.)

Does anyone have any of these seats fitted to their car ?

I’m in Colchester, Essex.

Thanks Kirk - will do.

I did wonder about the width of the Cobra seat , which is why I was keen to try one .

Fingers crossed .



I purchased Rennsport race seats for my 1973 911E. I found them great.

They do a 911 fitting kit:



Cobra are in Telford - so it could mean a visit to their factory if they could accommodate ?
Lots of seat specialists seem to sell the Cobra seats so if Telford is not convenient then its probably easiest to find the nearest one to you if you wanted to try before you buy - as you say whatever you do will be expensive so best to avoid a seat that's not comfortable for you.

I fitted Rennsport seats in the end when I restored my car - and put the old original seats into storage. They were able to also supply matching leather hides for the rest of the car trimming.
