I would think it would be OK you would need to find a manual without a sun roof to give you maximum head room.

I'm 6'4, and I can tell you you should have some headroom. The only complaint I have is the size of the stock steering wheel, I can't drive comfortably with my shoes on, I have to take 'em off in order to have enough room to work the pedals. I'm a skinny guy though, so I can't really help you with the weight part though haha

I'm 6'5" too, and use a healthy size 14 in shoes. No problems fitting in the Porsche 928 whatsoever, espacially the 8-way electric seats help, as I can adjust seat hight to a bare minimum, whilst still having support at the front of the seat. Make sure to get those.. Only 185 pounds though, so no help there :) The car is a 1986 man. 928S.
