I'm thinking more on the lines of "Whats Red And Has Seven Dents". ;-) Snow whites cherry! She should be "Snow White???" No, too juvenile.

While attempting to register this car in the 928 Owners club registry It was rejected because the car is a different "Title or Model".

Here is the screenshot:

Next I contacted Jarrod Wise who with incredible dedication maintains the 928 Owners Club Registry database. After a few go-arounds, we found that I740 "Exhibition" is a separate model which up until this point seems to have been undiscovered:

Special thanks to Jarrod for his dedication to the 928 Owners Club registry. It is an invaluable resource and I recommend/request that every 928 owner register his/her car, join the OC and enter their car in the Registry.

The display of the registry shifted when this car was entered. 0023 dropped out of sequential numbering and "Exhibition" now appears as a "new model" displayed between "Early and "Late" GTS's

Screenshot:



This car continues to surprise me as to its incredible condition and uniqueness. She is proving to be both a mystery and fun research project.

"Exhibition Car"

Porsche has partially answered my question: What an "Exhibition Car" and why is it listed as a separate model?





How many total worldwide "Exhibition" cars are there? 41

How many U.S. "Exhibition" Specification cars are there? 5

How many U.S./Canada "Exhibition" Dual Certification cars are there? 1 (My Snow White)

How many ROW cars are there? 35

What makes it different?
It turns out that there are no special parts. I740 is: "Exhibition Finish" It involves special high level paintwork and possibly clear coating. The cars were then removed from the production line and taken to the "Exclusive" department for triple checking of fit and finish. Three separate checking sequences of tolerances were performed and additional perfection of the paintwork was completed.

Where the cars went on exhibition is not yet clarified...
