Wheel caps with Porsche logo

Does anyone know where I can get another one of these wheelcaps with the Porsche logo on it?



I purchased these wheels from a fellow a few years ago and they came with these caps. Yesterday, I noticed that the left rear one was missing.

I looked at all the catalogs (including here on PP) but could not find anything that appeared to match. I'm hoping the collective wisdom of this group can point me in the right direction.

Not sure, BUT I think alot of people put the Porsche Crest wheel decals/stickers on the center caps you have shown above. There are alot of places that sell the decals, PParts might??

You always have ebay? I have see them listed on a regular basis.

Best of luck.

Thanks for the decal suggestion. I just ran out to the garage to double check on what I have. I looked pretty close and they are not decals. It appars that there is a metal insert in the plastic wheel cap. The logo appears to be enameled.

I'll keep an eye out on ebay...

I am looking for the exact same thing for the past few days.. came across this decal place.. I wasn't sure about the size so I told them about 2.5" in diameter. I inquired about them and this is their reply...

"We have the porshce crest in our catalog under auto performance page 5
http://www.quickstickers.com/catalog.php/section/Auto%20%26%20Performance/cur_page/5

At that size it would need to be printed. The price for 4 approx. size
2.5" diameter is 6.75 each.

Please confirm the size and let us know what color for the background and
the crest. We do offer a clear background or any color...."

They're in Navasota, Tx.. with a 77868 zip code - sounds close to Houston - or at least somewhere in between us... I'm in San Antonio...

I haven't ordered from the yet, but out of the 3 i've contacted, these are the only ones who said they could do it.

Those look like "American Eagle" EMPI replicas.

Might try one of the Bug shops.

Those look like the centers on the disc brake hub caps on the 356's and you can buy those separately

Exclamation

Yup, those are American Eagle wheel caps, still available, but without logo ( Porsche got real posessive about it's logo in the 80's) You can just order those up from AE and figure out something for the logos ( have one of your others repro'd at a
decal shop or something). I think the P logo came factory in the 70's from AE. P.S.: OH, now I remember...I think those are the sort of imbedded-in-a-bubble-of-clear-vinyl logos....you might have to just pull them all off to get 4 matching ones. I've got some bugpack alloy caps with porsche logos somewhere ( just engraved and painted black in the lines) if you need something to fit those. They go in with setscrews.

I was afraid of that. I'll probably pull all off and replace with something that matches all around.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions.

My car's center caps have stickers on the ends of them that look like that. I have only 3...i guess one fell off before i bought it. I'd like to know where to get some more. I'm going to be selling the rims sometime this spring and would like to direct the buyer as to where to buy new decals.

I have the enameled Porsche emblems on my center caps and on my horn button (work of a previous owners). I was told that they are a 356 emblem.
