Cheesy or not?

Hey guys, noticed that this fella put on a PORSCHE lettering emblem on the rear decklid of his 996 Cab. What do you guys think of the look? Is it cheesy?

I kinda like it. Sells for like $100 bucks tho.

I don't care for the wing, but think the lettering looks pretty good...reminiscent of the older days.

LOVE the lettering.

The wing is a design mistake.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the wing either, but that lettering is pretty nice. My car's debadged because I got tired of always having the letters come loose when wiping down the car after car washes, but may need to get that lettering.

It works on the 911 and I like the lettering, but I don't think it would that great on the back of a Boxster. I prefer a Porsche spoiler sticker or windstop decal and a Boxster or 986 decklid logo. Just my opinion.

I'm not sure it would look good on the Boxster either. Can someone do a photochop?

Porsche Lettering

I think it would be neat if you could get it in the same color as the car.

Apparently, after exchanging messages with Suncoast Porsche, they say the Dutch Anniversary edition 911 actually came standard with the PORSCHE lettering as you see below, and they will try to offer the lettering that comes standard on the Panamera once it is available for order.

Meh. Not a fan.

I always strive to have as little advertising or clutter on the back of my car as possible. In fact, if Porsches came like this from the factory, you'd find a ton of threads on how to properly remove that excess badging.

I de-badge all my cars. Brazilian baby! Less is more.

FYI, on the originator of "less is more", my design teacher was in love with this guy..
