When you drive a watercooled Porsche you need it to say PORSCHE on it as many times as possible to reaffirm that it is what it is.

Scripted door panels, spoilers, seats, they all fetch a premium.

I'd recommend the 968 handles instead, sell the ones you have!

Gesh! I'm going to swap out the ones I have for "regulars" and sell them! Besides and the 911 drivers tell me it's not a porsche anyway.

What you REALLY need is a glowing PORSCHE door sill, and replace your door open dinger with one that says "it IS a Porsche... it IS a porsche"
