Car manufacturer Porsche‘s division dedicated to classic vehicles, Porsche Classic, has developed a solution to the problem of scarce spare parts for its rare classic cars. 3D printers are being used to produce rare parts that are only needed in small quantities. All these parts are made to meet the technical requirements in terms of absolute fidelity according to their original specifications.

The Porsche Classic range currently includes a whopping 52,000 parts, and if a certain spare part is no longer in stock or the stock appears to be dwindling, it is reproduced using the original.
