I see that the center radiator hole is not cut out. Is this easily achievable if you have a 3rd radiator?

Yep it took me about 15 minutes to do mine . I drilled a 1/4 " diameter hole in each corner of the opening then connected the dots with a zip wheel .

These are ludacrously expensive, my engine-less 986 was 1500$. Is a piece of plastic this much? new bumper for a Honda is like 35$ primed, why so much more? I know dealer markup is nuts but it cant be that much more I'd assume. Am I wrong?

You are quite obviously wrong and should be banished from the forum and Posche ownership forever for having the nerve to compare to a HONDA!!! Remember "Porsche there is no substitute" everything else is inferior.
Happy New Year!

No, you're not wrong. The price is just stupid. However, they can be found on eBay for $350-$450 used quite often (still overpriced, IMO).
Porsche or not, these are not $50k anymore. Not even close.
The plastic in a Porsche bumper cover is the same as the plastic in a Honda bumper cover.

These are getting harder and harder to find, especially in new condition.I got lucky on mine but looked for over a year on eBay and craigslist to find a OEM with only a small amount of repair work needed. I just searched eBay and only found one OEM and it is rough and has been repaired (tear) for $800. New from Suncoast today is $3395.

Dang, do you want any trades? 2 new Meyle LCA, Mantis 1.2L deep sump including the trimmed baffle, 18" Cayman S wheels (replicas but the good Italian ones, tuv certified)

That bumper sure looks good.

Sorry, I'm not interested in any trades. I'm trying to clear space in my garage. I have this posted also in renntech.org, rennlist.com and Panjo marketplace.
