For those in the US, how have you dealt with installing the front license plate and making the Porsche look less than perfect?

What front plate? :)

I have the parts. I’ll install it if officer friendly insists. Until then they can track my movements by reading my rear plate.

2011 911, Taycan 4S on order
My MA plate stuck on the front my Taycan should be a criminal act. I’m going to do the same thing I do with my 911: keep the plate and mounting hardware in my frunk and claim I just had front end work done if I get stopped :CWL:

I’m confused. You can ask the dealership to not punch in the front plate?

I also would like to do this. Please let me know how this can be done.
Thank you

I think you just answered your own question. Just instruct the dealer to not mount the front plate mount. I’ll never let anyone drill holes in my front bumper again!

In one state, the dealers will make you sign a statement acknowledging that "the dealer informed me that driving without a front plate is illegal".
Recently, a dealer just handed me a bag with the front plate and mounting hardware in it. "We can install this, if you like. Or not. But we'd never do it without your permission."
The States really *want* you to have a front plate. They are tracking you with license plate cameras (usually through private companies that aren't subject to data privacy rules).

I am willing to pay a fine everytime I am pulled over for this.

Holy crap that's expensive. $67 + 25 for shipping? For a big laminated sticker.
But, I guess it pales in comparison to the car. :)
cheaper than a fix it ticket... getting those counter signed at the DMV is like a 4 hour wait.

but I’ve never been (yet) given a hard time about the missing front plate, despite ahh, plenty of opportunities for other interactions
