I've tried to get this key made by all sorts of places here in Texas, even by the Porsche dealership, Nothing. You guys are the greatest, and I really mean that, thank you very very much for what you've done and for what you do... (If your rating score goes from 1 to 10 you get a 20)..... (Paul C, TX, USA, March 2024)..... The 928 keys I ordered work great. Finally someone who can do what they claim. Thank you - (David C, CO, USA, Feb 2022)..... Thanks for making perfect copies of my ignition keys!! 😃 After two years and seven attempts by the dealership, you accomplished what my local Porsche dealer, Porsche-North America, and Porsche-Germany couldn't do! - (Fred H, MD, USA , March 2021)......
  • Overview

    Open or Close
    The keys for Porsche 928 have a very unusual design and are a challenge for most key makers or locksmiths (and even Porsche dealers). We have many years of experience with them: to see feedback about us search online for "keys4classics" on any 928 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 928 "HP…" 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 (or very rarely the HP code stamped on the lock body) - 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 928.


    Silca-brand keys are made of brass and original Porsche/Huf keys are hard steel. Both are plated in bright nickel. Original Huf keys will probably never show any signs of wear while Silca brass keys are gentler on your locks.


    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.

  • Silca-brand key prices

    Open or Close

    *Note discounts for multiple keys*

    1 key = US$65 and each extra key cut to the same code is US$30, so 2 keys = US$95, 3 keys = US$125, 4 keys = US$155…
    including decoding (read on…), quality Silca brand European key blanks, cutting (to the same code) with our guarantee (see "Keys Cut Warranty"). Plus shipping.

    DECODING THAT'S INCLUDED: Our main key price assumes decoding one key that's original and in good condition. If you have the key code, such as on a Porsche key card or noted in the owner's manual, we will verify the code against the cuts on your key. There is no extra cost for cutting both long and short keys from the same (long) key code, that does not count as an extra decoding.

    EXTRA DECODING: An additional fee will apply for decoding existing keys that are in poor condition, and especially non-original, copied or hand-cut keys. For keys with different cuts (that is, if more than one code is used in your set) we'll add up to $20 for each additional key decoding, where required.

  • Original Porsche (Huf) key prices

    Open or Close
    Our price includes not only the original Porsche keys, but also the extra workshop input; they're all hard steel-alloy keys that require special equipment, tools and handling.

    Decoding and Huf key blades #566 (long) and #567 (short) cut to the same code:
    1 = U$100, 2 = US$165, 3 = US$225
    add up to US$20 for an extra decoding (if your 928 has more than one key code).

    IMPORTANT: An original Porsche clip-on head is required to fit blades #566 and #567, this is the head with gold-colored Porsche crest and push-button LED light, Porsche part # 944-538-041-01 (94453804101).

  • Short or long keys? More than one key code? Mixed key order?

    Open or Close
    SHORT = NO ALARM, LONG = ORIGINAL ALARM, see our photos for a comparison

    Yes we can make short (no-alarm) keys from a long (alarm key), but not long from short (some cuts are missing). There is no additional cost for the long-to-short conversion.

    Short or no-alarm keys derived from a long with-alarm key count as being of the 'same code'. However your 928 may use long and short keys with entirely different cuts and these must be decoded individually.


    Our main key pricing assumes decoding one key. For keys with different cuts (if more than one code is used in your set) add up to $20 for each additional key code.

    If you want to place an order of mixed keys (make, type, long and short, etc) contact us to do the arithmetic for you, we will ensure you are offered the best price.
  • 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.

    We do not need a ruler or any other items in the 928 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-cut 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.
