Available for auction is an incredibly rare, illuminated Porsche dealership letter set. This large-scale Porsche dealership sign consists of the seven letters of P-O-R-S-C-H-E that measure approximately 40 feet in total length. Each letter is 60" inches wide by 30" inches tall.
The sign had become available from a California Porsche dealership in 2018 when the California Clean Energy Act (SB 100) was enacted. As a result, all signage in California had to comply with Senate Bill 100 to meet the State of California's clean energy regulations. Porsche Dealerships statewide had to meet compliance requirements in order to receive their city, county, and state sign permits. Throughout California, new SB 100 compliant replacement signage was installed at all Porsche dealerships.
The signs are supposed to be dismantled and destroyed when removed. However, as highly prized and coveted collectible items go, a few of these precious and rare signs slipped through the cracks and ended up in private collections. In its restoration, the sign was required to be converted to the California Clean Energy (SB 100) specifications. This was done utilizing state of California-approved LED lighting. Each letter is fully restored and reconstructed of a silver-finished metal case capped with red plastic. This signage would have been the main large letters (not the smaller Porsche letters seen on the sides of dealerships) placed prominently in the front of the Porsche Dealership.
Rarely do these massive large-scale 40 feet wide Porsche dealership letters ever come onto the open market out of private collectors' hands. Don’t miss out on this rare and unique opportunity to own an authentic piece of Porsche dealership and advertising history. The buyer is responsible for all shipping, handling, and fees.
