Paint Protection Film – Porsche

Paint Protection Film

Paint Protection Film is designed to stop rock chips, love bugs, and any road debris from damaging the paint of the vehicle. Below are our most popular options for Porsches:

Daily drivers or weekend cars: For this type of driving, most customers go with a full front which includes full hood, full fenders, mirrors, bumper and a section behind the rear wheels. This gives the perfect amount of protection and peace of mind while cruising down the highway.

Track Cars: For the Porsche that is going to hit the track we recommend a little more protection. The most popular set up for a track car is full front, mirrors, extended rockers, behind rear wheels, leading edge of roof and pillars. We also recommend putting a 2nd layer in a few key areas for added protection and as well as to protect the main layer of film. For the car that is going to see a lot of track time, we can upgrade the standard 8 mil PPF to a 10 mil PPF for added strength.

  • Windshield Protection: This film is 4 mil thick and is made by Clear Plex. This product will stop sand blasting and chipping which can easily happen to your windshield.

Maximum Protection: More and more customers are coming in for this option which is entire car protected with big tear off layers in high prone areas. Whether you are going to be a weekend warrior or full-time track use, this is the way to go.

Headlight Protection? We get this question asked a lot. From 2012 to current, Porsche lenses have de-lamination issues with the clear coat. If you put film over the lenses, it protects it up to the day you remove the film. At that time there is a 50-50% chance of pulling clear. If you don’t protect the lenses, they get chipped and start to fade from the sun. Typically, we recommend daily drivers not cover them and track cars cover them.

Paint Protection Film Brands We Carry


Most paint protection films come with a 5-10 year warranty. We typically recommend bringing the vehicle back in 4.5-5 years for an inspection of the film. Depending on use of car and how much sun exposure the film will have dictates on how long the film should stay on your car. If the car was driven hard and in the sun a lot we will recommend removing the film and replacing under warranty. If replacement is recommended, we will charge a removal fee, however the replacement will be covered under warranty.

Paint Correction – Ceramic Coatings

If you want high shine and very easy maintenance, this is what you want. We can apply the coating over the film, paint and wheels. Ceramic coatings are very popular for Porsches that wants to stand out at a car show or just easier rubber removal from a day at the track.

Even though your paint can be brand new, there are tons of blemishes left from the factory. We take the time to remove all swirls, sanding marks and other factory blemishes. This will bring out the depth in your paint. The next step is to use a ceramic coating which will give your paint more shine, higher gloss, and makes the paint hydrophobic and lastly will eliminate waxing up to 7 years.
