I dont know really how to describe this - but here goes!

2001 996

i have noticed a lot of movement if i pull up on the subframe/area below the rear of the seat.
(picture trying to open the seat while it is locked)

I can move it about a half to 3/4 of an inch. When i do this, i can see the joints between the exhust pipes (the joints directly behind the heat shield) also have some movement.

Does anybody else have this issue? Is this an issue? It just seems awful sloppy - i would not think there should be this much play...should there be?

Tighten up the bolts that hold the subframe to the frame, they do tend to loosen due to the leverage on them from the weight on the seat.

What he said. Back some 10 years ago my 748 had a vibration issue until the engine was under heavy load. The subframe had come loose.
