Parts suggestion

An easily removable engine cover for the Cayman and of course 2016 GTS since that’s my car!

How about seat backrest buffers for G-series cars (or most in fact with Recaro seats).
Part numbers L & R are 901.521.191.00 & 901.521.192.00. These are no longer manufactured by Porsche. Sierra Madre Collection have made runs of repros but not for a long time and have none planned. The originals were a moulded hard plastic but Im sure something could be machined up.

Product Suggestion

I did a bi-xenon conversion on my 993, with upgraded clear lenses as well, and de-chromed the shiny interior while I was in there, for an updated look.
What I have not been able to find, however, is a clear replacement headlight lens (no diffusing ridges) similar to the ones available for the 964s.

I have to imagine that there must be a market for something like this for the 993.

OEM glass:

aftermarket clear lens on a 964:

Gunther Werks 993 - just for illustration purposes. I'm not sure they would even sell this item piecemeal and it's more "polished" than most would need - or I would want.
Personally, a simple recasting of the OEM glass without the ridges would be ideal. And far less complex and expensive than the GW version.



This is mine without all the shiny business going on inside the headlight.
An improvement IMO, but the deletion of those ridges would make for a cleaner look:

How about a cup holder in the "map pocket" in front of the covered pocket. Something simple made from maybe fiberglass that simply has a small curve out of the edge to accommodate a coffee cup sized drink. I put my coffee in there now but it always is tight and I'm bending the door panel/wall by doing it so often. Maybe something that replaces the entire unit with a better hinged top for the covered part- and just a simple molded cup holder in the open part. My wife's Dodge Grand Caravan has it- and it works really well. It's something like this:

I would like well built rear fender support braces and integral mud flap brackets with tasteful - durable mud flaps to protect the rear quarters from rocks,etc.

Not for everyone ,but definitely a functional piece for me.The old ones I have are staying until i find good replacements.The added bonus is that they also keep grit off the engine and inside of the upper rear fenderwell.

I'd love to see some quality replacement 911G Model visors that are similar in appearance and materials to Original Equipment visors.

Help 😱. Please make an engine deck lid support to replace the rediculous gas strut system. On my 81 911SC, I’ve tried every brand, combination and gimmick on the market for over thirty years and none work more than a couple years. It’s embarrassing having folks see your deck lid propped up with a piece of broom handle. Ask anyone with a 911 and you’ll get an ear full on crap gas struts. I have lots of Rennline parts on my SC and they’re all great quality and well designed. You smart guys are the ones to solve this very annoying and expensive problem.

1976 + Lower dash cover to be used with knee pad (original or Rennline) With the options of radio delete, A/C control delete. They should be in plain(black/brushed/primed for paint) finish and have the option to be straight or grooved to install decorative fabric insert.

Damn! You beat me to it. I had emailed with Russell Fawley at Rennline regarding this.

We have something similar that we've been working away on for a few years... Its very slick and almost ready for production. It will definitely take car of the ugly dash syndrome.

We have something on a the drawing board to replace the gas strut. It bolts in place of the factory strut, so no welding required.

Unfortunately, this ones out of our scope, as we do minimal work with fabrics. This would be a great product for somebody like Lakewell.

This is a great idea! My personal car has some of the infamous vertical dings in the top of fenders. Very common with cars running slicks as they pick up the pebbles and fling them into the underside of the fender. We drew these up many years ago, and then put the project on hold. I'll get it back on the drawing board and email you when we have a set ready.

We do have a cup holder in the works. Our initial prototype fits to the upper door rail. There are alot of people who aren't able to use the door pocket unit as they have early door cards, or rsa door cards. We are shooting to release this before the holiday season!

This is another great one for Flat 6 Illuminations who we work closely with. I will pass along the idea.

We've done some research and there does seem to be a need for these. Is there any chance you have one that we could borrow? We'll send you a free set when we finish the first production run... as well as yours in return of course.
