M-numbers
MNR Description
342 Heated seats
448 Colored Wheel Caps

The launch cars were the first cars of that model brought into the dealership network for demo/sale. They had a specific package and color schemes if I remember correctly. I don't remember what the package combination is though.

That's correct. When they release new models they generally ship "Launch Cars" to the dealers. They are all optioned the same. For example, the 2005 997 S launch cars were all Black/Black with PCCB.

No, not an S.

And thanks guys for clearing that up for me. I guess it means there are a bunch of red caymans equipped just like ours out there.
