MADE IN FLACHT sticker?
 
You will often see a 'MADE IN FLACHT' decal near the rear left light of the Porsche Motorsport cars - a discreet acknowledgement to where these cars come from.
Where can I score one?

Also I looking for a small Porsche 70 jahre decal, anyone?

^I'd say Kinkos.

I've not seen that on the Motorsport cars:

I think NS2 media was giving them away.

No unique font, probably a good idea

Bruce, typically, stickers stuck all over a street car’s paint look goofy as hell. However, if this is something your heart wants, consider the more classy “Born in Flacht” script I have seen on some Porsche race cars.

Agreed & I normally don't put anything on the paint, maybe something on the glass.
The decal below is probably a 1/2 inch tall, I'm looking for something discreet.
Have you seen these guys who put PORSCHE all down the side their cars? Real wankers :roflmao:

I noticed what a really hideous diffuser the RSR has. I'm sure it is functional but you can't make a decal big enough to cover that mess.

^To my eyes that functional diffuser actually looks...

AWESOME!

This is prolly one for history nerds and brand anoraks.

I think this sticker first appeared on the GT1 racecar. But not in period. I've not been able to find "Made in Flacht" on livery photos before the 1998 race year. But somehow that detail started appearing a couple years ago on the museum cars in Stuttgart, initially just on their early strassenversion, and eventually their various 97s and 98-Evos. Since then it's been copied, both in official adverts and by others...

Correct/incorrect? Happy to learn...

Motorsports should definitely reconsider just on the sheer fact of aesthetics - not sure what they were thinking in designing a car that is meant to turn lap times and neglected the aesthetics :crying:
