Default 911 TT - badge on the rear. Which way to go?

I don't like the standard chrome

P O R S C H E
911 turbo S


The idea was to change the color to gloss black, and the following options are under consideration:

1) P O R S C H E

2) turbo S

3) turbo S ("S" being red)

4) 911 turbo S ("S" being red)



The car is 911.1, dark grey metallic.



Any ideas/suggestions?
Any pictures of the same car of the same color with the above options? I made quite a search in the internet, but could not find anything.


P.S. Why the gloss black? It will match other elements in gloss black, which are to be done very soon:

Thanks in advance!

I have gone for your option 1, P O R S C H E in black on GT Silver.

I personally think anything more than this on the back looks way too fussy, I was told that Porsche stuck all the badges on the back there for the Chinese and other markets which apparently like maximum bling.

I've gone for the Turbo S in black at the bottom of the doors for vehicle ID

I thought the 991 "turbo" emblem was too small on the bumper without "PORSCHE" so I looked at the 997 versions. I discovered there are two 997 sizes. The turbo S set is a bit larger than the 991 but is smaller than the 997 turbo alone version.

Mine is the standard. A$$ is so big anything less would look too small.

I went for matt black PORSCHE on Rhodium Silver Turbo S Cabriolet.
Everything was too busy. Watch out though, if you factory order PORSCHE, only it will be lowered and centered.

I debated too. Thought just Porsche or have the S in yellow, looked the best in my opinion.
Ended up "converting" to matte black, and now that I look at it, the "turbo" is a bit small. Need to change it

Before and after:

Went with "PORSCHE", as it was too busy before, and if one doesn't know which model it is, I don't need to tell them.

Nice!
Not sure, but shouldn't P O R S C H E be more centred in the available space?
It looks like it may be sitting a bit to high.

You are correct.
If it is PORSCHE only, then it is positioned a bit lower, more to the center. It is 6.5 centimeters (2.56 inches from the upper side of the bumper to the upper side of the letters)
