The 911 Euro style? The lens will fit right in a Bug bucket. I don't think the whole assembly will fit. The mounting screw for the Porsche bucket isn't the same as a bug.

yep, the lens and rim fit (apart from the mounting hole)

just wondering if the 2 screw holes at the top of the rim , lines up with a beetle rim?

I mounted a late 80s 911 euro bucket in a standard VW fender by:
drilling a 6mm hole in the bottom of the bucket
bending a long 6mm machine screw to a 45 degree angle
mount the nut from the outside of the bottom of the bucket.

I used a nyloc nut and tightened until snug fit against the rubber.
