I'm not sure what deal Boothe has with Porsche, but you can believe its significant if he's offering these items with their blessing. I wouldn't be surprised if they were made under license by the OE manufacturer as Porsche does not just bless "hard core knock-offs" just because you paid them a royalty.. especially something that proudly displays their trademark. Think about it.
I have known Ralph Boothe since the 80's. He is a really unique man. He was the first to design and build the turning wheel caps. The logo will stay upright to the eye as the wheel spins. He told me in the early 90's how Chrysler stole his idea and it would of cost too much to sue them.

It reminds me of the movie Flash of Genius with Greg Kinnear.
