Hello is this real carbon?

Also how close is it to the Porsche OEM carbon?

Thanks

Hi,

not real carbon. Looks close (hence why I try to say carbon look when discussing this). It is made by painting the handle surface black and then hydro dipping a design onto it and then adding a clear lacquer. Very professional and durable finish by coating experts at Wicked coatings.

So you do no get the texture of a real weave but the look is very close. It's best applied on small parts like handles rather than large surfaces like splinters or spoilers.

The picture above with yellow interior console shows a genuine Porsche carbon fibre handbrake cover next to the hydro dipped black trim band around the gear selector trim on my car.

A few of us used this as certain parts are not available in OEM carbon on cars like my Turbo S that has the carbon interior option.
 
Nope, I can't remember if Porsche ever did that in carbon :?:
