How to attach the Boxster badge?

It is probably one of the most difficult questions to answer (hope not ):
How to attach a hard plastic (no original adhesive anymore) Boxster badge on the soft "plastic" dash underground?
I am sure there most be a special adhesive/glue for that, or maybe not?

That is the task (see below):

Thanks for any hints in advance.

I would suggest a good contact adhesive, slow curing and apply with a small paint brush, or, a good spray carpet adhesive.......??

Make sure the adhesive does not lose it's properties in high heat. A car sitting out in the sun can really test an adhesive. You don't want to find the Boxster emblem resting on the spoiler after a day in the sun.

Thank you guys, so far!

I am going to try the

3M VHB Tape 4941
Flexibility of Materials:
One Substrate Flexible, Both Substrates Flexible, Both Substrates Rigid

Tape Thickness 0.040 in (1.0mm) - 0.045 in (1.1mm)
Temperature Resistance - Initial 300 Degree Fahrenheit
Temperature Resistance - Long Term 200 Degree Fahrenheit

If that is not going to work, nothing will
Maybe I have to concider pinning the emblem on there, somehow
