OEM Porsche parts - Where to buy?

Back in the day, Stoddard was owned by Porsche, and they kept a great stock. Now it seems everything is in Germany. Both our host and any of a number of P-car dealers take over 2 weeks to get things in. Are there any good stocking dealers left in North America?

Try Sunset Porsche in Oregon. Not sure about on hand inventory but there prices are really good. At least on the part I bought. 964T rubber intake elbow that accepts the blow off valve was less than $30.00. Got here quick too.

Several years ago Porsche required all the dealers to send the bulk of their parts stock back to germany.

Well, that bites. I like to use the Porsche exhaust nuts and bolts, but not if I have to wait two weeks. Maryland Metrics has the slotted copper plated nuts, so I have that handled. I am having a harder time resourcing some of the studs and bolts.

Yeah makes it hard for every one but i think it had something to do with vw aquiring them it happened about the same time but i'm really not sure. Just makes it much harder to get factory parts.

*********** can get anything. Last yr I got some very hard to find slant nose headlight mech components, they have a pipeline to pcna and Germany. Not cheap.

Neither of these sell retail to the public.

Factory parts -- any dealership can get any part in the factory parts catalog IF it is still produced or in stock somewhere in the world. Need it quickly and they can (a) search all dealership inventory across the US, and (b) expedite it from DE for ~15% surcharge which usually gets it here in a few days.

I can't see any dealership in the USA is wanting to stock $$$$$ of classic air-cooled Porsche parts that sell infrequently. They churn inventory for the newer water-cooled cars, ex: 986/996/955. That inventory moves and makes them money. Us air-cooled guys are the oddballs to them. Honestly, how many air-cooled cars are in your local dealership's service bays? They hardly know what to do with a car older than 5 years.

Hardware -- fastener supply companies, like Maryland Metric, are often a better source, and frequently stock yellow zinc plated fasteners which maintain that 1980s-90s engine apperance. The factory has stopped using yellow cad plated fasteners, and new stocks are typically clear zinc or phosphate coated.
