If those are the same mirrors as what you posted, then you are a shyte photographer because your mirror appears about 1" shorter than the others and with a different taper down towards the maker's mark.

ps. Trump's an arsehole, don't throw his name in my face. I didn't vote for him. That crap belongs in Parf, not here.

Not Porsche mirrors pictured. Not even good repros.

Ummm, yeah, those mirrors aren't the same.

Off a 1974 RoW Carrera. The arm for the mirror is the same as the bright mirrors.

They are not the same mirrors but both are Porsche parts. The plastic mirror Shirish posted is difficult to find.

Green car here

Compare Porsche 911 2.7 Carrera versus Carrera 3.0 - Ferdinand

Cheers Jonny, was about to post the same link. I donít believe any of these plastic mirrors came with the ĎVPí Porsche markings or part numbers.

Maybe Tru-6 can refinish them to black?

There was an Australian market "golf club head" style mirror. I find it hard to believe no numbers would be on it. Not seen in the US market for sure. Maybe it was a RSR part that people used on their regular car. Or used on Carrera 3.0 in some markets.

91173101721 is NLA from Porsche.

Thanks all! Interesting stuff. I'm now leaning towards black Talbot mirrors since I'd have to weld the holes shut and re-paint anyway. I think those are very cool even though not 'stock'!

When I had a '74 I wanted a matching RH mirror. Found a pair from a contemporary BMW. Very similar style. Had them powder coated. Worked just fine.
