Sport or Standard Seats - How do I Tell ???

I'm getting ready to recover the seats in our project 86 944 N/A. After browsing some sites for price/style I've come to believe that 944 was available with either standard or sport seats.

How do I tell which seats I have so I order the correct upholstery kit?

My seats are highback buckets covered in black vinyl with black cloth panels on the back and seat that have a black on black "Porsche" script throughout the cloth panels. I'm pretty sure these are original seats since I've seen other identical seats in other 944s.

Any help would be appreciated.

sport seats wrap around your sides a little.

Thanks for the reply. I really do appreciate your input. Unfortunately, it just a bit too vague and I still don't know if I have sport or standard seats.

Here is a pic of my sport seats, you can see the side bolster is much larger than the standard seat.



Hope this helps

as you see, my answer wasn't that vague, just didn't have a pic.
