Porsche has a long-standing and some would venture to say a cult-like following and that’s with good reasoning. When you truly want an iconic sports car that produces amazing power and handles as if it’s on rails; the Porsche 911 is an amazing choice. With all that power just waiting to be released comes the ultimate cringe moment for all car enthusiasts; rocks and other road hazards flying at the front end of your vehicle destroying the amazing paint finish.

The owner of this 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S contacted us with a few ideas in mind. He recently purchased the vehicle with a partial front end PPF already installed. After a few discussions concerning Paint Correction, PPF removal, PPF re-application and / or Ceramic Coating options, the client ultimately settled on a customized package to meet his exact wants and needs.

The Porsche 911 Project:

  1. PPF removal from the front end of the vehicle, mirrors and rock guards.
  2. Single stage gloss enhancement polish to remove some minor paint defects and overall enhance the gloss of the vehicle.
  3. Front End PPF Package + Rock Guards which consisted of: Full hood, full fenders, full front bumper, mirror caps and rock guard coverage.

PPF Removal From This Porsche:

The PPF removal portion took a total of 8 hours to complete, as it was 9 years old and had been baked on in the Florida sun. Removal was fairly intense but was completed without any damage to the original paint work, which was a huge positive to this client.

Porsche Gloss Enhancement:

The gloss enhancement portion of this project consisted of a single stage polish which removed about 30% of the paint defects and increased the gloss of the vehicle. We offer 2 options when it comes to paint corrections / polishing. Gloss enhancements are best served for vehicles in generally good condition which just need a quick polish. 2 stage paint corrections are typically reserved for the client whom wishes to receive the best paint finish possible. It’s important to note that even a 2 stage correction will only remove 70% – 80% of paint defects. However, even this is generally a significant improvement to clients and leaves the vehicles finish looking amazing.

PPF Application:

This client chose our Front End PPF Package and added OEM Rock Guard coverage as well. Our Front end PPF package consists of the following coverage:

  • Full hood
  • Full fenders
  • Full front bumper (excludes trim)
  • Mirror caps

Replacing the OEM rock guards in front of the rear wheels was an awesome choice by this client to provide fresh protection of the wide rear quarter panels the 911 sports.
