Does anyone else find that they need to have the seat back cranked almost verticle in order to get close enough to wheel for some "spirited driving" or do i just have short arms? i AM willing to measure them for a survey.. :D

You need arms long enough so the knuckles touch the floor in order to drive the 993!

i'm not midget, but being tall seems to make the issue worse - the further away from the pedals i am, the further away from the wheel i am.....

Dan - is your toros 6,3 but your legs and arms very short? :wink:

Go on then! arm span at full stretch and height. they should be pretty similar. give or take 2cm or so.

Results eagerly awaited! :)
(you may need a friend to help!)

My arms are 188.9cm, height 190.2cm

Doesn't the 993 have a reach adjustable steering wheel or was that yet another improvement they made when they brought out the 996? :twisted:

but you need to measure both arms finger tip to finger tip outstretched aswell as your height to really tell.
