I had these back in the day when I owned a 997 and had a cramped garage.

Also, the 1st day I had the car, we went out to eat. I parked the car in a back portion of the parking lot far away from other cars. There were tons on open spots. When we came out, there was a redneck, high rise pick up truck parked within 1 foot of my car. How they didn't ding my door was a miracle - they made contact with my door.

It prevented door dings when the other cars doors would swing too wide.

They have a magnet in them which allows them to attach (rubber on the back side)

These are high quality

The can be used in a parking lot.

I'm viewing these from my phone. Are there any photographs that show where on my car that your item's can be placed. Also, how many are needed per car.
Thank you,

I'm guessing that there are two from the picture.

It appears to be the Doorshox Valet, which is a two pack.

More pictures and information below from their website. They seem to like using 997's for their models

They really look great. I wanted to know if they will fit my car: 1995 993 Porsche Cabriolet. I have difficulty using their website from my phone.

I ought them along time ago - thought I remember the price, I didn't.

So adjustment down to $59 (shipping included).

There are 2, they can go anywhere on the car.

So am I to throw these on the car every time I exit at a store or something. I see it as an invitation for others to give it a test run. It's a bit too inviting.

nice product but the best way in your garage is not allow wife or kids in.
they know if they get into my garage, all hell will break loose.

Parked my Mercedes in the back of a Outback lot once for a family dinner. Walked out afterwards and two middle eastern guys were in back of lot talking. One was sitting on my trunk!
The could not understand why I was so mad.

Seems like these would be stolen within 5 minutes of leaving the car in a parking lot.

True - they are easy to steal.

I never used them outside of my garage because I saw them as a potential draw for some idiot to key my car.

Our garage at the time was very narrow and it was very easy to make contact when a door was opened.

They could also be attached to a garage wall to prevent you from dinging the door edge is you are with limited space.

My current gararge is 28 feet wide, so I don't need them anymore.

I had a bunch of cabinet and counter top foam protectors from when my kids were little. As they grew up I've put that stuff on my lift to prevent door dings, best recycle moment I've ever had.

Don't 997TTs have aluminum door skins so I'm not sure magnets would work there?
