Hi Greg.

Here are the details:

RS820575
1 of 595 A1 black coupes
1 of 317 A1 black/black coupes
#1772 of 2,234 NA coupes (92-95)
Black, black partial leather interior
Factory options:

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

Hi Jeff:

Not sure if I've asked before. Can't seem to find any notes to indicate. Could you provide me with similar information on my car? VIN ends in 105. Manufactured 10/91.

Thank you, Sculler

All consistent with my car. Recessed hood badge, limited slip, Eight way drivers seat. Everything as you described except OEM radio has been replaced.

Not sure about 10 speakers. I have 3 in each door. Have not pulled panel in rear. I suppose there could be two speakers back there on each side?

Thank you very much for the info. Definitely cleared up question about stereo head unit.

Yes, the mounts in the rear have two speakers in each one. You'll find your AMPs under the front seats. IF you can find a used CD-2 they go for at least $500. A rare piece.

Even the owners manual goes for big bucks:

Hello Jeff!

Long time lurker, first time (personal) poster, (I'm in the turbo sections frequently, as I work at COBB Tuning). What knowledge can you impart on a 1993 coupe, #168? I won't be able to take a look at it until later this week, and was hoping to gain some insight before I go take a look.

Thank You!!

-Cody.

Cody,

If you are talking about PS820168, it is a guards red tiptronic coupe with a black interior. The only two options are the tiptronic and partial leather seats.
