In 1963, Porsche presented the 901 (also known as the Narrow) as the successor to the 356 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Mass production of the car began in 1964, with RECARO suppling its independently developed sports seats to Porsche. The first seats under the brand name RECARO went on the market the following year in 1965. Since that time, RECARO has developed a wide range of products including motor sports seats with superior strength and rigidity, ergonomic seats employing advanced ergonomics and various safety technologies, and advanced high-performance seats that are lightweight thanks to new material technologies. As the one and only premium brand recognized around the world, RECARO has long been a leader in the evolution of automobile seating.
