This is a Genuine PORSCHE Factory Hood Crest custom refinished by us here in the USA! Unlike other sellers here on we are NOT offering cheaply madecounterfeit / knockoff fake items manufactured in China or India. We don't sell copycatjunk "pot metal" items made in Asiawe only offer jewelry quality custom pieces that you'll be proud to display on your prized Porsche!
Ask these sellers if they're refinishing GENUINE Porsche Factory pieces. Look at the backs of the items they're offering. The counterfeit pot metaljunk they're selling doesn't even have the correct Porsche part number on the back! GENUINE Porsche Factory crests are die struck / forgedpieces withmounting postssoldered onto the backside of the crest. Counterfeit items are easily distinguishedby mounting posts that are "molded" into the piece as they'remade by pouring pot metal into a mold.Genuine pieces will also have the manufacturer's name and logo on the backside (DEUMER, AR , REU etc.).
We've been refinishing GENUINE Porsche factory pieces for over 5 years and so wesupposeimitation is the most sincere form of flattery. :
That being said.........
Some Porsche owners think that the factory gold, red and black enameled hood crest, although timeless and distinctive, is just not "right" for the character of their car. I'm a Porsche owner and enthusiast myself and realize that these cars are not mere transportation. Modifications to the performance, handling and appearance of your Porsche are a expression of the owner's personality.
This is a full size GENUINE Porsche Hood Crest, carefully bead blasted and custom refinished with Matte Black Cerakote.Each piece is bead blasted to remove the cracked, faded or chipped cloisinee / colored enamel. It is refinished with Cerakote which is a durable ceramic firearm refinishing material. Cerakote is well known amonggun owners as the most durable refinishing material available. It'sused by the U.S.Department of Defense as well asFederal, State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies for refinishing firearms, optics and other equipment.Cerakote finishes arevirtually weatherproof and your Matte Black custom crest will keep it's showroom appearance for years!

You should know that all Porsche Hood Crests (with a 901, 993, 996, 997part number prefix etc.) are all the same size and are interchangable. The difference in part numbers reflects subtle changes to the badge design (lettering, border etc.). This crest will fit ALL Porsche models to manufactured since 1965. This includes911, 918, 924, 928, 930, 931, 944, 951, 964, 986, 987, 718 (Boxter & Cayman), Panamera, Macan, 955, 957, 958(Cayenne) 993, 996, 997 and 970. This will not fit 356 models as the badge is a smaller size and mounts with a single post. The crest that you're purchasing is a "new"style crest with outlined PORSCHE lettering in the top banner. If you would like the "old" style piece with solid lettering please include a note when you remit payment.
Please note I do offer a core exchange option. If you send me a used OEM Porsche Hood Crest (not an knockoff or counterfeit) free of gouges in the face metal I will credit $25 towards your purchase of a refinished emblem. Emblems with cracked, faded or chipped enamel / cloisinee are perfectly acceptable. I do reserve the right however to refuse a core emblem after inspection if it is in unuseable condition. Shipping expenses for sending the core to me are at your expense. If the core is in unacceptable condition it will be returned to you at my expense. Please send me a message through if you wish to pursue this option.

USPS Shipping is included in the price of the item within the US. Shipping outside the US is via USPS First Class International Mail at the rate calculated by .
CAUTION!!! PLEASE NOTE:
When mounting this piece make sure that the retainers are firmly screwed onto the mounting studs but DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THEM. If they are too tight the tension between the mounting studs and the crest may pop the studs off the back. There is also a chance that you can pull the mounting surface (the hood sheet metal) inward creating a dimple effect. I would suggest that instead of over tightening the retainers you apply a small amount of black 3M Trim Adhesive between the crest and the gasket as well as between the gasket and the mounting surface of your Porsche. A 1oz tube of the adhesive is 3M part #03602, costs approximately $6, and is available at most auto parts stores or online.
I will not be responsible for replacing the crest if you ignore the suggestion above, over tighten the retainers, and "pop" the crest off the studs. Mounting the crest is a easy straighforward procedure. If you are hesitant however about mounting the crest yourself you may wish to take it to a Porsche Dealership or qualified Body Shop to complete the installation.
Please look at my response and offer with confidence! We have been refinishing these pieces for fellow Porsche owners and enthusiasts fora number of years now, one at a time, to your order.
