Recaro, founded in 1963 by the Reutter family, first produced Pepita pattern for customers in December of that same year. The first Porsches to use the Pepita design were late 356C models. They were followed by the Porsche 901/911 and Porsche 912.
The last use of Pepita covers by Recaro is documented for the first generation of the Recaro Idealsitz (Ideal seat) in 1970–71. Pepita could be had not only in black-white, but also in brown-beige, blue-green, and red-beige.
