With Porsche cars hand made back in the '50's, standardization was near non-existent. They used things like tail light from one year to another until they ran out. Things like rear view mirrors were dealer installed where ever dealer or owner wanted them. With a replica - no one will ever try to compare it to the real thing. No rust bubbles and the VW pan with tall tunnel and tunnel mounted hand brakes are visible from 20 feet. A replica is made to be driven and put a smile on the drivers face (unless its raining).
