968 Clubsport Style Rear Seat Delete Assembly for Porsche 944, 944S2, 951 and 968



The Porsche 968 Clubsport has become known as a legend of the track due to its near perfect 50/50 weight distribution associated with the use of the famous and heavily underestimated Porsche transaxle setup (engine and clutch are located at the front while the gearbox sits at the back of the car).

With the Transaxle models now being affordable on the used car market and backed up by a 100% OEM parts supply provided by Porsche, the 924, 944, 951, 944 S2 and 968 are now considered by many enthusiasts as the track day car of choice which is also backed up by various ‘one make’ race series accommodating these cars.

Most novice track day users prefer to start tweaking the cars handling by fitting up-rated suspension systems and adjustable top mount camber plates then shortly followed by the removal of as much unneeded weight from inside the car as possible.

Whereby a racer or serious track day enthusiast will opt for a complete interior removal, most prefer to simply remove the extremely heavy and usueless rear seat and replace the front seats with lightweight aftermarket bucket seats.

Porsche recognised this requirement already in the Nineties when they introduced the Porsche 968 CS (Club Sport) which was effectively a lightened and partially stripped version of the 968 and 968 Sport. The first thing that Porsche chose to do was drop the rear seats using a moulded carpet covered with fibre board which sat in place of the rear seats, glued to the cars floor pan. The Porsche 968 CS proved to be extremely popular in the UK and Europe but was never shipped to the US and Canadian markets.

The RSR9 rear seat delete

We purchased an original 968 CS rear seat delete from Porsche to try and retro-fit it into our Porsche 944 Turbo (951/952). We noticed that the Original Equipment 968 Clubsport Rear Seat Delete is not a bolt-in upgrade for other Transaxle models. This lead us to develop an upgrade part which would perfectly fit to all Porsche models 924, 944, 951/952, S2 and 968 cars alike. The end result is a product which offers perfect fitment due to various factors mainly being that the carpet side and rear edge shapes have been designed different by us.

We have developed a product which is better constructed, lighter and better fitting by using the OEM rear seat delete as a basis to manufacture an FRP (Fibre Reinforced Plastic) reinforcing element which is then press fitted with a matching OEM style carpet material. This multi-component design offers best fitting characteristics and results in a very high-quality product making it very popular among Transaxle enthusiasts

Currently our Porsche rear seat delete is only available in black.

The finished product weighs only approx. 2.6kg resulting in a saving of approximately 10kg over the factory rear seats.

This product is also an excellent addition for those wanting to install a rear harness bar for the use of 4, 5 or 6 point harnesses combined with bucket/sports seats.

Production lead time (if not in stock) is approx. 10 working days from payment.
