Need a seat recommendation please

I'm looking for a retro looking fixed back seat for 34" waist tall driver. Black with silver grommets. Must weigh 1/2 as much as factory leather SC manual seat. Ideas? thanks

996 GT3 seats!!! I have had mine in six different cars. I'm 6'4" and have a 34" waist. The seats are the best I have ever sit in. They are expensive though...

Recaro would look correct. But the 996 seats are too modern in a Carrera, IMO.
I have the Spa in carbon/Kevlar. 10lbs per seat.
I lucked out and found a very nice pair for a steal.
Very happy with them, comfortable.
Getting in and out takes a little bit more effort than a stock seat, of course, but that does not bother me, yet.

Aftermarket lollipops also look the bees knees.

GTS Classics, Exotic Car Seats, or TRE Motorsports has a number of excellent seats, light weight, period appropriate and varied sizes.
