Default Certificate of Authenticity

I bought an '06 Carrera S convertible a couple of year back and for some reason Porsche sent me a Certificate of Authenticity. I thought that was good until I saw it states my engine/transmission iM96/03/G96/00. I checked the numbers engraved in the engine - M97/01 686 11393.

So this certificate is worthless??

IIRC, at the 2018 TechTactics West, PCA mentioned that they no longer put the engine numbers on COA's.

That seems worthless when it contradicts and adds unnecessary confusion to your information. I thought all 997.1 S models had the M97 and base models had the M96.

I would contact them and let them know of the error. Maybe they'll correct it and send you a new one as that engine # with an M96 would not be correct in a 997.1 S car anyway.

Does the VIN number match?

COAs have been found with errors. Call PCNA to have it corrected.

Why do people waste money on these?
