Jeff, thanks so much.
I'll check the door tag and report back. I ran my carfax today as well, I guess I had forgotten that my friend Peter bought this car from the original owner in 2006. It spent 11+ years with the original owner and 12+ years with my best friend. The car spent its earliest years in Connecticut, with service records from New Country Porsche prior to heading to Barrington, IL with the same owner and then sold locally to my friend who also lived in Barrington. I don't believe it spent one night outside the garage for at least the 12 years I've known the car. In fact he only put ~6000 miles on the car in those 12 years. Car now reads 50,700 miles, pics and my own thread once it's landed in Nevada.

PCA membership has remained current during times of Porsche & non-Porsche ownership. I've had 944T's and my beloved Cayman S (all have been white, hence StormTrooper)

Thanks again
Sean

Yup, a May 1992 build (could be April) so a late 92. Only 4 options: LT partial leather in black, XD4 painted crest center caps, 490 hi-fi sound 10 speaks with 494 amps.

Hey John,

It is a 718 car (reVINed 94) built in May of 1994.
It is a white tip coupe, 3 options: LT partial leather in black, 249 Tiptronic transmission, and 437 8-way full power drivers seat.

You can learn all about option code 718 968s on the registry website, Here: Code 718
The page tells you the details right down to the cutover VINs.

Correct, It could be dealer or more likely, port installed option. I know they don't work anymore but they are still cool to look at.

Here you go:
RS820614
1 of 595 A1 Black coupes (most popular coupe color)
1 of 188 A1 Black coupes with a cashmere interior
#1811 of 2,234 NA coupes (92-95)
#554 of 718 1994 NA coupes

Factory options:
LC Partial leather seats in Cashmere
XD4 Painted crest center caps
220 Limited slip differential
437 8-way full power driver's seat

A late 94 built in December of 1993 so it has all the late model years changes like the 993-stlye comfort seats and the lack of engine bay trim.
