Thanks for the info Harvey. I guess it's impossible to know how many are still on the road. I would guess more than half of them.

Well, one thing's for sure.........unlike the earlier cars we're not going to have to worry about them corroding away. AND when they're old and unwanted there are no '80's equivalent of slope noses, widebody conversions and big engine swaps waiting to be done by guys like me wanting to fiddle and learn. Or simply make a quick buck.

Okay, I'll stir the pot: how many *varioram* C2 coupes were produced?

Its cool that they only made 539 of the 95 C4.

1 in every 562,532 people in the US own one. That means there should be between 4 and 5 in Utah.

Useless facts for ya.

Approximately 3415 C2 coupes were sold in the US from 1996 through 1998 and almost all of them were varioram.

I understood the total production number to be 49,216 (all models) with about 24,000 of those sold in the US.

You know, I gotta say that that's not a lot of 993's. The '73 Carrera RS is considered a very rare car, and 1590 were made (IIRC).

Don't forget that there are another 3554 of the '95 C2's sold in the US and ANOTHER ~7,000 C2's built for the rest of the world. Total 993 C2 production is somewhere around 15,000. Add in the 993 models which were not significantly different than the C2 and the number is closer to 25,000.

The '73 RS was completely different than the standard 911, even more so than the differences between the 993 RS and the 993 C2. I don't know how many 993 RS's were produced, but it would be interesting to know.

There were fewer 993RS's produced than '73 RS's. I think 1090 993RS's, but I might be off by a hundred. BTW I'm in no way comparing a 993 to a Carrera RS -- I've driven a '73RS, used to own a '68 911, and am well aware of the differences. It was only a statistical comparison for the purpose of illustrating the relatively low production numbers of the varioram C2 coupes...

That's it. I am quitting tennis and taking up golf. Saw her the other weekend playing with John Elway in a small pink outfit...

I'd love to see a picture of Elway in that outfit. Please post!
