4 seats?

Yeah the Non Clubsport would have 4 seats. (2 in the front and 2 in the rear)

I prefer other configurations.

You prefer not having anyone in the rear?

I really doubt its going to have rear seats as a factory option. I know people have fitted fake illegal seats in a 996 and 997 gt3, but thats hardly the same
Still, stranger things have happened

Correct - there's no chance of a factory rear seat option.

I can't see it being that hard to put back seats and seat belts in if you wanted them. No doubt the bodyshell has all the attachments ready to go.

the body shell / chassis was different in past gt3's, and the mounting points were not there
The conversions to rear seats I saw looked rather comical.

however I suspect in the 991 this is no longer the case as it runs the same engine and gearbox design as the carrera
As a result it probably uses the same suspension mounting points, hence the rear wheel steering being included, hence you can probably bolt in carerra seats and seatbelts
the only hurdle would be the front seats, if they are different, harder, deeper, mounted on beefed up longer rails etc.

excuse my grammar, I hate ipad typing

If someone really wants 4 seats, a Carrera or Turbo makes more sense. Getting all the bits for a car that isn't made for them, plus insurance and registration hassles make it all too hard. Most (all probably) GT3 owners will have other cars to carry the family anyway.

Interesting. I thought in such a mass produced car, things like the body shell would be standardised across many models. At one stage Porsche was the most profitable car company in the world per unit produced which makes me even more surprised they aren't the same shell.
I read somewhere that the extra cost of producing a turbo over a base 911 was only in the order of $15k at manufacturer level. The margin at retail level is more like ten times that.
