What non-Porsche (non-race) seats will fit in a 924/944?

I love virtually everything about driving my 924S, but the one thing I continue not to love are the stock seats (mine are the cloth-centered ones with the Porsche script on them). They're just too flat for my liking and I just don't sink well into them. I guess I need to be 6'4 220lb German dude or something. Also the complete lack of bolstering annoys me.

I know the easy button is to get 944 sport seats or seats out of a newer Boxster or 911, but in good shape all of those are a bit out of my budget at the moment.

The other obvious choice would seem to be Miata seats, since they're pretty damn similar to 924/944 seats, and are widely available for cheap - but I've had them in other cars and they are the same issue as the 924's...they just don't fit me well.

The seats I absolutely love are in my 2009 WRX, but those would probably take a lot of modification to fit sicne they are a bit wider and have a much taller base.

So any other OEM seats from another car that might fit and not look totally stupid - preferably something fairly late-model (2000s) so I can find them in good condition?

Not interested in aftermarket/race seats (I have enough race cars with those), as my 924S is for long-distance road trips, not the track.

Any thoughts/experiences appreciated...

Boxer seats are cheap as chips on Ebay... I wasn't sure they fit straight in, but if they do then that would be my choice....

I'm a 6'0 175lb dude of Irish descent, so I definitely need something narrower lol..

Yeah, been looking around at the Boxster seats. Will have to go to an autocross or something and find someone with one I can sit in lol.
