Ouch!

It's very rough to the touch. Is this replace entire door territory ?

I did that to my GTR the first year of ownership in my underground parking spot. Broke my heart. They were able to buff it out and repaint and now you can’t tell it ever happened. It took them forever to match the paint since it was a new colour for them. They were on the phone with Japan multiple times - the team that fixed it were true GTR enthusiasts and wanted to make it was perfect.

I think you should be fine. Emotional damage is higher than the physical damage!

Had a similar scrape on my 911. The whole panel had to be repainted. Maybe around $1200. So what happened to the cameras and beepers?

Should be repairable. But it hurts to see that.
Happened to my i8 2 weeks after I picked it up:(

Car spent three full days in the body shop – got close to needing a new door due to warping– but all worked out in the end.

Really pleased with the shops attention to detail and the end result.

My Porsche Centre carried the cost as a good will gesture too* – which really was very generous – especially as the repair difficulty/time escalated.

* due to a faulty 22 kW charger being shipped from factory and it taking a few months for Porsche to ship a new one.
