Someone else asked me about this one and it is a bit of a mystery.

NS820488
# 428 of 2,234 full run
1 of 299 Grand Prix white coupes
1 of 31 Grand Prix white coupes with a classic grey interior

March or April 1992 build (if you see it can you check for me?)

Only 1 option, TT partial leather seats in classic grey. But I have seen pictures of the car and it now has partial cloth script seats in classic grey??? I can't explain it. Dealer switch? I have asked for a photo of the vehicle information sticker. It should show the TT partial leather classic grey.

Hi Jeff -- I went to see the car last week. Option code is TT, I took a picture of the sticker, but the seats are script and I think vinyl. Car needs cosmetics and love. Nice seller, I made him an offer and he is considering it....

Well, I'm glad my database proved correct, Still, interesting how a full set of classic grey cloth seats made it into the car. That is a big change but I can see a dealer doing it to make a sale. I have seen cases where a 968 lost its sport seats and 17" wheels during their initial dealer sales. The biggest one was a full repaint done for day one delivery.

Thank you sir!

Is there a database anywhere that outlines the late model years' changes?

Interesting that a late 94 is built in January of 1994.

Thank you for the information. I appreciate it.

We are working on a page with that info for the registry website. Since you asked about production dates I'm sure you will find this interesting:

Code 718

This is the Vin for that Red one on Craigslist in CA if you want to give everyone the skinny WP0AA2966NS820616

Careful...at that price if you say 220 and or sport seats you might start a stampede!

Thanks
John
