Individually Handmade Keyrings For Classic Vehicles Made Here In England & Shipped Worldwide

Porsche - original vintage new old stock 1990s vitreous enamel Porsche crest shield keyring with grey leather keyfob - collector's item

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered

These original Porsche crest keyrings have now become very sought after particularly if in mint condition and in slate grey leather like this one.

We are also listing an almost identical keyring but in full grain ( textured ) slate grey leather ( unless now sold )

These really are the ultimate of their kind and came to us at the same time so we are listing them both at the same time.

Gone are the days when keyrings like these could be had for a song – even though these were expensive to put into stock we had to buy them – that expense is reflected in our listing price.

Similar keyrings ( if you are lucky enough to find them ) could be even more expensive next year as interest in vintage Porsche keyrings continues to grow.

The keyring in this listing is new old stock and in mint condition – you will not find a better example.

It is difficult to date these keyrings exactly as they had a long period of issue but we are advised by one of our customers in Germany that examples like these will most likely date from the 1990s – we are very grateful for his input.

The keyfobs were usually in black leather and occasionally in grey leather which understandably are much more sought after – this one is in slate grey leather .

Made in genuine leather – not imitation leather which Porsche now uses for their keyrings.

A characteristic of these Porsche keyfobs was the amount of internal padding which was used to plump the keyfob up. Each one has this ‘padded cushion’ effect.

The splitrings fitted to these keyrings are usually rather too large to our eyes.

This one is fitted with a splitring of a size much more in keeping with the size of the keyring- the splitring has a slightly corrugated finish which is something which we have seen on splitrings of this period.

Unusually we have recently had a couple of these keyrings to offer here in the website shop ( but in black leather ) – prior to that we didn’t have one for many months.

Mint examples are very rare and do command a premium over used examples- we do currently have a used example listed ( unless now sold )

Original examples of these keyrings do appear on internet auction sites from time to time but never seem to be offered in particularly good condition ( please do not confuse them with the modern imitation leather replicas with badges stuck onto the fob with araldite which abound on ebay ! )

Even when in poor condition these original Porsche crest keyrings with the hinged badge ( in black leather ) now routinely sell for around £75 each on internet auction sites – sometimes even more when 2 or 3 keen bidders are involved.

A well used one in black leather appeared on ebay recently located in Australia priced at well over £300 !

We do not know if it actually sold.

Over the last 3 years the price of classic Porsche motor cars has risen dramatically before finally levelling out – this has been reflected in the demand for original keyrings to accompany those cars . The value of the keyrings has also risen accordingly and we are now having to pay very high prices in order to put good quality original Porsche keyrings like this one into stock. You will notice that this website shop seldom has many to offer !

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.

When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.  00/542      02/21
