I am restoring a 12th month 1951 Porsche Split Window Coupe and wish to buy a left hand side Keiper door latch. I have the right hand side Keiper latch as per my photo. I believe these Keiper latches were used until 1955/56.
Thank you
Terry

Sorry, don't have one, but the change to the later/smaller latch was in March 1955.

If all else fails it looks like it would be reasonably easy to make a replacement from scratch, maybe using a couple fo springs from a later one. The original is not that far beyond being a hand made piece.
