This is pretty obvious but:

1) Targa's have more headroom than coupes

2) Sunroofs take up just over an inch of headroom

3) If you plan on tracking the car you might have to wear a helmet (which will take up another inch or so of headroom

Also different seats are different heights off the floor so really you need to try a few out to see.

I have a sunroof and a helmet.

I haven't tried to use both at the same time yet (the helmet is mostly for the bedroom).
