Not bad, I checked a couple 968 VINs and it was mostly correct. Unfortuneatly it doesn't tell you exterior or interior or the X code options. I have those so I'm not out of business yet! :cool:

That's all I need. So, let's see what we have here:

You car is:
#1,273 of 2,234 NA 968 coupes
#16 of the 718 1994 NA 968 coupes
1 of 595 Black NA 968 coupes (most common color on 968 coupe)
1 of 317 Black/Black 968 coupes (most common combo on 968 coupe)

Factory options include:
LT - partial leather interior in black
XD4 - painted crest center caps
437 - full 8 way power driver's seat
490 - hi-fi sound speakers w/Amp
691 - AM/FM single CD player in dash

Your car is also a 718/Model year reVIN 968. It was originally born as a 1993 and then reVINed to a 1994 by Porsche so you have the 944 style seats and the engine bay trim pieces. What is your vehicle production date? March or April 1993?

I don't list the standard feature option codes and I don't have the exclusive interior options (like seat piping or deviated carpet).

How'd I do?

Jeff

I don't think your things working!
Navy blue exterior color
Gray interior color

As for the rest I'm not sure, because; no original wheels came with it, radio has been changed!

So not sure...:confused:

Forgot to mention, it's a USA car also... was imported a couple of years ago in Canada...

Hmm,

Your full VIN is WP0AA2963RS820076???

I'll have to check my files when I get home tonight.

Watch for another post. My data is based on these vehicle information stickers which you can find on page one of your maintenace manual or stuck to the rear hatch floor or taillight panel on the left.

Okay Jon,
Let's see if I do better for you:

You car is:
#1,843 of 2,234 NA 968 coupes
#586 of the 718 1994 NA 968 coupes
1 of 29 D3 Iris Blue NA 968 coupes
1 of 11 D3 Iris Blue 968 coupes paired with midnight blue/marble gray interior

Factory options include:
WQ - partial leather interior in midnight blue/marble gray
XD4 - painted crest center caps
220 - Limited slip differential
437 - full 8 way power driver's seat
490 - hi-fi sound speakers w/Amp
595 - CD changer

Your car is NOT a 718/Model year reVIN 968 so it is a true 1994. You have the 993 style seats and no engine bay trim pieces. What is your vehicle production date? Dec 93? Jan 94?

Jeff

Ha!!! yeah, those digits do make a difference. Looks much better now:

Your car is:
#1,544 of 2,234 NA 968 coupes
#287 of the 718 1994 NA 968 coupes
1 of 220 F8 Midnight Blue NA 968 coupes
1 of 89 F8 MidnightBlue 968 coupes paired with classic gray interior

Factory options include:
TT - partial leather interior in classic gray
XD4 - painted crest center caps
398 - 17" 993 style Cup 2 wheels
437 - full 8 way power driver's seat

Your car is NOT a 718/Model year reVIN 968 so it is a true 1994. You have the 993 style seats and no engine bay trim pieces. I could use your production date (found on the driver's door VIN sticker)

Is that better?
Jeff
