Actually, no they don't.

The driver side hinge uses a bolt on the hinge side mount. There is a threaded nut to accept it.

Since I originally posted this thread, I found out even more info.

I was informed by a very experienced and certified Porsche tech and well known rally car builder that the plate was/is used on the right side hinge due to the fact that if they used a mount like the left side, it would strike the 930 airbox. And in looking at the setup, it makes perfect sense.
