Electroluminescent Gauge Faces

Not for me, but thought they were neat and I've never seen them before.

They are not "glow in the dark", but EL

Finally someone came up with something like that for real...i only posted a fast shot design over a year ago
They look as if they were actually meant for the pre2k Boxsters. Not really my cup of tea. I still would like to see something similar though, to display the speed in the center

240km/h ? .....not enough

Wow...takes me back to the 90's when these were hot! Used to pimp these in my 97 VW Jetta!

I wouldn't give up my Porsche stylish numbering dials for anything!

Or maybe I would if only those "red" gauge plates were still available (those with identical Porsche numbers, Techart I think) . Flipping up all those needles is a huge gamble I've read, the only reason I didn't play in there, yet anyway. Never know

Quickly rigged that PS for those of you who (might) like the look. Interesting find Charles

Not my cuppa, but to each his own. Now, if I was ambitious enough, I would like to upgrade my dull yellow gauge bulbs to something brighter.

these in my opinion are not good looking, not even the right font or design, besides I would not want to look at a logo that is not original all the time, perhaps if they reproduce oem style would be a cool proposition

+1 The OEM gauge faces are a model of simplicity and clarity.
