3D printable Boxster stuff/spares

Does anyone know of any resources for downloading designs for 3d printing parts for our cars? I can't seem to find much on the usual places (thingiverse being the larger).. other than a cup holder there doesnt seem to be much else.

was thinking things like parts which already exist (car mat holder, hardtop adapter covers etc) or neat ideas like reusing coin/center console storage/ashtray as something else

@particlewave, looks good. but why did you want a remote in the car? there isn't anywhere in the car which is not reachable by hand

Why not? Center console controls are just convenient.
This is in a natural position and I know the buttons by feel.

Mostly, it's just because I was bored.

hey don't take offence dude. it wasn't a slight at you. was a genuine question. I was thinking maybe that it wasn't a remote and was used for something else.
if i meant it in a nasty way i wouldn't have included a smiley face!
