How is the Porsche parts business different today from 30 years ago?

In 1978 most customers simply wanted low mileage used parts for what was then their daily driver. Porsches were still just cars (albeit fun cars), not yet icons with an enthusiastic fan base. The idea of companies specifically dedicated to reproducing exhaust systems or decos would have seemed impossible.

The internet has increased the number of people in this business. Yet the number of genuine, original, good condition used Porsche parts remains finite. So, as always, buyer beware.
