PORSCHE 928 1977-95

We offer both ORIGINAL and high quality SILCA brand European aftermarket replacement keys for Porsche 928, all years and variants.
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.

    KEY CODES AND DECODING

    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.

    KEY MATERIAL

    Silca-brand keys are made of brass and original Porsche/Huf keys are hard steel. Both are plated in bright nickel. Silca keys are actually gentler on your locks, while the original steel keys will not wear so much (your lock is taking the wear instead). Part of the higher cost for original keys is due to the extra cutting work required because of their hardness.

    WARRANTY

    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.

  • 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). Pricing is the same as for regular short (non-alarm) keys and 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.

    MULTIPLE KEYS CUT TO MULTIPLE CODES

    Our main key pricing assumes decoding one key. For keys with different cuts (if more than one code is used in your set) add $10 for each short key code and $20 for each long 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
    HOW TO TAKE PHOTOS OF YOUR KEYS

    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.

    These are the only 928 lock parts we sell… and we do not do any work on locks.

    Note- if ordering only console keys or wafer-tumblers (no main keys) the minimum order value is about US$40, plus shipping.
    There is no extra shipping cost if these keys are included in a main key order.
  • 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.
