Ha! That can be said for pretty much every part. When Porsche orders its parts from vendors, including Bosch, it sets out its specs. Manufacturers can make parts many different quality levels. "OEM" just means original equipment manufacturer. It doesn't mean the original spec part. I've held in my hands parts from the dealer marked by the manufacturer and the same part that is OEM and noted obvious quality differences. But sometimes they are identical. I just don't know if this is one of those times. It could be that the sensor itself is identical, but the wiring and clip are of a lesser quality.

But I will also add that in this case the price difference is quite large. The Porsche price is over 3x the OEM price.
