Thread: New SWB Taillights and Turn Signals from Porsche Classic

    They originally did it on a cocktail napkin, Ferry Porsche and Max Hoffman.

    Couldnít agree more about Mr.Kemmer, these would have been perfect them.
    About US taillight lenses, I got impression from marketing speech in Originale 06 that US version would be solid-colored plastic like original(mandatory back then, not in Europe) and not painted like Euro-lens. But it does look brighter red in pics than NOS ones.

    Correct color for front lenses would have been easily achieved, still would be possible but bit annoying to separate brand new 600Ä light unit from manufacturer... (they should have used Tamiya modeling paints )

    Described as,
    "here is the newest match From Porsche Classic

    The "Holy Grail" -original PORSCHE new edition of the historical dealer crest

    Absolutely perfect new edition of the Porsche advertising sign true to the original

    Beautifully historically packaged. Including Porsche lead seal and historical description

    to your guys info
    if you doubt why erlkoenig classic / reutter shop can do "repro" stuff like this legally

    is that the owner of Erlkoenig classic , FRANK JUNG is the grandson to Mr. Reutter, and the story is that he have the legal rights to Reutter and RECARO "classic" and and I know he is making a range of classic Recaro seats at the moment
    and this is what I have been told , not sure of the legal and true part of it...BUT Mr Reutter designed the true badge back then for Porsche , and some how they have the rights for the crest .. how this story works in real life I dont know

    Last word? Thanks to Eric and a few other "True Believers" there is good stuff we can be proud of. Original still beast repos but when you cannot beat them, you join them. If you cannot do better yourself you may gracefully accept what is offered or choose not to buy it. Easy.
