  • Overview

    Open or Close
    We have many years of experience making keys for the classic Porsche 911 series. To see feedback about us search online for "keys4classics" on any Porsche owners' forum.


    For us to provide you with new keys we want to see clear, sharp, high resolution digital photos of a working key-- see below for detailed instructions.

    We "decode" your key to determine the precise cuts required, it's more reliable than from a database or a recorded code. Then we look up the cutting sequence in our database to get the original Porsche 911 "HC/NC…" key code, which we'll provide to you for your vehicle records.

    If you do not have any working keys, but you do have an original Porsche key code card - yes we can cut a key to that code.

    We cannot cut keys to your VIN (vehicle identification number or "chassis" number). The VIN is no use to us, but we do like to know the manufacture year of your 911.


    Silca-brand keys are made of steel or brass and original Porsche/Huf/DOM keys are usually steel or an alloy that might be nickel-silver (harder than brass but not as hard as steel). All are plated in a bright nickel finish.


    Many years of experience and the latest high-technology computer controlled equipment ensures that your new keys are cut with great precision to the original specifications. We are very confident that our keys will work well in your locks and we offer a substantial warranty.

  • How to take photos of your key

    Open or Close

    Please send 2 photos - take one directly over the flat face of the key - then turn the key over for the other side.

    Natural light is usually good, near a window with diffuse daylight. Avoid glare/reflection. A plain, neutral background is best. Not pure white or jagged background shapes please!

    We need to see the cutting along the edges sharp and clear. Point the tip of the key toward the window, the light should fall evenly along both lines of cuts. However if one side of the key is in shadow, hold a white card close to it, to reflect enough light to remove or reduce the shadow.

    Use enough resolution (file size) for the cutting to be clear and sharp even when enlarged to fill a computer screen. GOOD SHARP FOCUS IS ESSENTIAL. We can receive large file sizes OK, such as raw photos from a smartphone or camera.

    Usually we do not need a ruler or any other items in the 911 key photos, just good light and sharp focus. If your camera does not grab sharp focus pull it away from the key until it does.

  • Cut keys warranty

    Open or Close
    We have very extensive experience with the unusual 928 key type and our keys are cut on the latest high-technology computerized key cutting equipment for precision and accuracy. We confidently guarantee our decoding, keys and cutting. We work hard to ensure that you can have the pleasure of using your 928 for many years to come.

    Disclaimer: Our "full" warranty applies to replacement keys made by decoding original Porsche/Huf keys in good condition. A more limited warranty applies where you have supplied photos of a faulty, copied or hand-made key or where there is apparent evidence (usually from your key) of damage or excessive wear to the lock/s. Where we have not seen a photo of a working key we guarantee to cut keys correctly to that code, but that is all. If locks have been replaced, modified or damaged this also is outside our scope and may affect your warranty.

    Please note that 928 locks often require substantial lubrication when fitting new keys, and your ability to do this is a condition of purchase. We provide lubrication notes with your order.
