We can never get enough of DIY car tips and tricks and the latest comes from a strange place – a garage in which the steady hands of a craftsman remove the badging from the newest Porsche cars. This is 2016, so adhesive is all that holds the badges, lettering and all other “ID” hardware on the car in place. To remove it you do not need that much – a bit of time, steady hands, powerful hot air blower and a bit of experience. Now, do not think for a minute that you should do this yourself on your own Porsche (if you have one). Although using a hot air blower and a bit of tools comes to this guy naturally, the truth is that he’s been doing this for years and he just got the hang of it. For you to achieve the same perfection level of removing the badges, you would have to buy a lot of Porsches.
We found out that Porsche actually offers their new cars without any lettering except for those on the engine cover. Although they can be colored the same way as the car, the best is to remove them altogether.
Porsche is not the only carmaker which attaches their IDs on cars with an adhesive. Almost every other car manufacturer does the same, so if you enjoy some cheaper car, but want a clean, German look on it, get that hot air fan and start blowing.
In this instance, the operator removes badges from the 2016 Porsche 911 Carrera S. Just to ease on your curiosity – this thing costs A$258,750. And yes, it has a new turbocharged engine.
