991 Front Plate solutions?

Anyone have a lead on a no-drill front license plate solution for the 991 (with front park sensors!!)?

Seems like it is going to be a real challenge, but people are clever...

I have been searching as well. I hated the plate on the front of my old C4S and I really don't want to drill into my new baby!

Call Brad at US Mill Works. It works great on the 997, but I don't know about 991's and I don't have front sensors. Here is his website:

I contacted them last week. They won't have anything for 6 weeks (so now 5).

This may have zero impact on a LEO, but worth a try. Ask him to email you a letter that because it is a new vehicle model, they won't be able to ship until _____. Stick it in you glove box and see what happens if you get pulled over. Metermaids are a different story.

I actually have that e-mail. The problem is my 991S is being delivered this Saturday but I am going on a business trip until the 17th!

Look at these two pictures. One shows how the side mounted plate might look; the other shows a center-mounted plate (with drilled holes). I would chose the center placement any day of the week. Drilling will let you maintain the beautiful lines of the car. Besides, nobody is going to see the holes!

Ya and in that 2nd picture you are covering my parking sensor completely.

I'm not sure--it's kinda like wearing your baseball cap way off to the side, isn't it? It's youthful and hip?

In California those are illegal. I'm not sure where the OP lives.

either the tow hook or drill under the bumper to install a motorized mount. i heard people gluing high strength magnets inside the bumper too.

i need to invent one that uses some sort of suction cup mount second thought, since there is nothing in the center opening, maybe sticking a block of styrofoam mounted with the plate, secured by velcros? anyone want to try LOL...

I got your message. Here is a photo of the tow hook plate mount on my old 997 .
The 991 will look pretty much the same. They have a totally different tow hook on the new model . I should get the new bolt from my machine shop later this week and post some photos then. If you have any questions you can contact me directly at :
