Nope. Also, don't put a Porsche license plate frame on your Porsche, or a Porsche vanity plate.

Maybe a smaller decal, I just added the 911 turbo to the bottom front corners of the doors looks great. Black on meteor gray.

Since you're just looking for opinions, I'd say no. Too busy on your car. You've got a lot going on there, with the black hardtop, black wheels, red pinstripe, etc. I think you're at or approaching the tipping point. Of course, that's just my opinion, you know what that's worth.

With all that black, speedster-style black rock guards might work on your car.

BTW, that black hardtop is an interesting look. It reminds me of this:

I donĺt think the stripe would look good on your cabrio. As others have said, you already have a lot of contrasting colors going on.

I'm also in the NO camp, but assuming it's easily removable, and you're on the fence, why not add it, try it for a while, and if you decide you don't like it, remove. Just make sure to come back to this thread for a Mea Culpa!

Love that color...T

Hi Mike - glad to see you on Rennlist. You were one of the people I watched on YouTube and spoke with while I was buying my 997. This is a great look on your car.

Like with the carrera s but front fender without stripe.
Agree if have various colors already with wheels, top, etc can make it too busy. Do like on monochrome silver or black color schemes though.

I think the decal looks good on some cars and bad on others. It depends on your paint color, wheel color and other options. My guess is with your particular car it may look too busy as others have noted. A good way to determine this is have it done using photoshop and see how you like it.
