Is this supposed to look like this?

Recommended Posts

I was sitting outside of my car (2005 987) today and noticed something odd. The panel underneath the door is bent upwards in an arc underneath the driver's side door (see attachment). There is no matching arc on the passenger's side. So, I'm wondering, is this supposed to look like this or is this damaged?

Thanks in advance,

Well it's not on my 06, so I would say it's damaged. Did you buy it from new?

I stopped by the dealer today for something and while I was there I asked them to look at it. They said it's definitely not supposed to look like that but they were puzzled by how it could have happened. I'll have to take it to a body shop to have them look at it.

To answer your question, I did buy the car used, but, I've had it for a year and never noticed this (even though I've jacked the car up and changed the tires myself). There doesn't appear to be a "point of impact." just a nice, smooth dent. Anyone have any ideas on how this could have happened?
