Default 85 944 Rally edition?

Hi all, I just picked up a 85 944 with some stickers that say rally edition on the fender by the door. I could not find any info on it. As far as I can tell there is nothing else left I can see that's not normal for a 944. Anybody know anything about this Rally edition? Or is it something the dealer or someone put on?

It does have a 715 option code which I did not see any info on.

Thanks
Pete

that looks like an "Autozone option".

I figured as much. the 715 code on the tag in the trunk made me think it could be something weird.

Thanks

Rally edition is just a sticker.

Code 715 is "internal production code PV-U pilot run." Supposedly all early 85 cars have it; and it denoted such cars serving as a test for the new polyvinyl undercoating.

Apparently it was dropped halfway through model year 85, as it became standard (but could be deleted).

Thanks, it is going to get body swapped as our new lemons car.

Our 25+ raced lemons 924S looks like a demolition derby roadblock car.
