Default has anyone removed the "porsche" from the back?

i really dislike it... on my cayenne/macan/991 i only had "porsche" and left the rest off because i hate the whole "bragging" s or non s routine..

on the gt3, i like the fact it's a gt3 and thinking of removing the "porsche" but the back is so large that i feel it might feel naked and empty unlike my 997 which had a larger "Gt3" and fit nicely.

anyone done it? pics?

this looked good..


but... will this?

Maybe order GT3 from 997 and put on 991. Just a thought.

I bought one from Suncoast before taking delivery with intention of replacing but never did. I guess still on fence. Stored in box with center muffler etc and parts still for half a year. Not sure if I will actually use it. Although looking at the pics again I might come spring

doba_s also did this.





I am thinking about this also, however you are right, our "GT3" alone seems too small for that area below the wing, so getting a 997 "GT3" emblem is probably the best solution.

I did this and think it looks perfect. The "PORSCHE" made the rear section look too busy IMO.

I've seen photos on here of a de-badged GT3 (both the porsche and the gt3 were removed) and my thoughts were the same as yours - it looked naked and needed something. Sorry I can't remember who posted the pics?

I kept the original logos and stuck them back on after the whole car got wrapped.

Will post pics when I get home.

Good topic. I have considered this myself too but I think the current 991 'GT3' logo is too small to be on the back without the 'Porsche'. I am curious how the 991 looks with the 997 'GT3' decal alone.

I think the small GT3 logo would look better if if you put a Porsche crest similar to the front his crest, just above the GT3.

I like that the 458 has a Ferrari crest on the back of the car, (but could do without the crests on the sides of the 458)

There s a few of us on here who have done it and all really happy. Its the larger 997 GT3 badge and it isnt cheap. Heres a few from different angles...IMO its WAY too busy with the Porsche lettering which is a retro touch I really don't like on the new Porsches...
