Paint Code Locations For Porsche

Locate your Porsche's Paint Code


Porsche Labels are difficult to find. Check around your spare tire for a large white paper label. Porsche can hide this label in odd places and it is inconsistent. Also look in your car manual. There is a duplicate of that same sticker there, although I am uncertain if Porsche did that for all of their cars, or only for a few select years. The paint code is either four digits long and starts with an "L" or it is three digits long. It will contain letters and or numbers.

Additional info: Porsche also quit putting the labels on and left them up to the dealers to install. It was on a sticker sheet inside a bag that the front license plate came in. If the front license plate frame was unnecessary the label may have been disregarded. In this case you should still have the additional paint code label in the owner’s manual.
