    "911" model designation on boot lid

    Guys,

    Kind of dumb one but important for me... tried askin in a UK forum but got only partial response.. so trying again here. 

    I bought a used 991 Carrera S which had the full "911 Carrera S" badge at the back. I asked the dealer to swap it to a "911"  badge only before delivery. And so they did. Installed a "new" one. Except the badge looks a bit wrong, looks like the 997 one.. too thick compared to the PORSCHE inscription. So I started to wonder if they had just put the wrong one. 

    I asked another OPC to check and they say they cannot confirm which one I have fitted Smiley and with my chassis number they could order me either a "small" version (the one which comes with the 911 Carrera S) or "large" one. 

    I just wonder if some of you have compared closely the 2 and can tell me with 100pct certainty the "large" one is the one to go for. Absurdly the OPC doesnt have a clue.. they just say the small one looks "nice". 

    I dont have a car to drive to a dealership and checkmyself.. .and all the porsche parts people I speak to are close to useless...

    Can anybody help ? I attach a picture of the original badge which hopefully shows difference in thickness.

    That's how it should look. I think yours is a different version.

    BTW enjoy your car Smiley

    I don't know...this just doesn't look OK...in both cases.

    If one needs to put the 911 on the boot lid, I would get rid of the PORSCHE lettering.

    PORSCHE lettering + 911 badge = looks weird.

    I've seen that a lot with the 996 and 997's, never really cared for it.


    Re: "911" model designation on boot lid

    On this one "PORSCHE" lettering looks weird....smaller.... Is this kind'a new option?
