Great thread and thanks for putting this together. At what stage of production / allocation are VINs "created"?

From what time period do they represent? At 560 cars for NA, I wonder what % this represents of total VINs "created". Trying to extrapolate total cars expected to be produced.

I'm not sure exactly when the vin is created. I imagine it would correspond to some point along the production schedule around V250?

As far as I can tell the cars in the database show up after the car exists production. They are not built in strict vin order. Some lower vin cars were built in October after higher vin cars. Likely product/supply batch scheduling and where there are PTS or CXX options delaying production start.

These cars are a handful of August but mostly September and October to date.

Yes that's a good assumption.... my unit was "Fixed" (V250) back on July 4th and then I got the VIN # approx a few weeks or so after iirc.

Great stuff! Thank you for compiling. PTS data would be really cool to see as it becomes available.

How many weeks of data is this? Maybe we can extrapolate out to Nov 2018 and beyond to guestimate the oft-asked question of how many 991.2 Gt3's will be built.

I'm going to order chalk, black wheels, pdk, led in black, lwb, steel brakes, lift, extended range, bose and sport chrono to maximize flipability (new word?)!

j/k...guess my no-bose no-led manual gt3 will never sell.

It's basically August to October production...we can't really tell by weeks as that information is not given. Loess may have it broken down by week...he can chime in.

If not, we can guess by comparing August numbers vs September and prorating?

Thanks for this great thread! I have a GT3 Touring going V260 (vehicle entry to body shop) on 10/27, so I assume is an early one. It will be interesting to see what percentage are Touring.

You'll have to take into account other GT models starting production sometime next year (GT2RS, GT3RS, GT4, etc). Supposedly that will impact GT3 production as they have a limited capacity.

560 GT3 are in V250 (educated guess per above), and that is just for NA for roughly 7 weeks production. As stated below, production must be dedicated to NA currently.

The below spreadsheet was posted in another thread.
