First or second production run of Carrera in 1999

Recommended Posts

The first 1999 US model 996's were really 1998's according to Porsche. Then there were "real" 1999's. This also coincides with the headlamp marker light change. Note though, that people change these all the time, so I wouldn't use that method of carbon dating.

VIN's for the US cars were as follows:

production year 1998: Coupe W 99XS6 20061>30000 Cabrio W 99WS6 50061>59999

production year 1999: Coupe X 99XS6 20061>29999 Cabrio X 99XS6 50061>59999

That is the information I could pick up. What is the difference and what problems were taken care off?

I couldn't find any reference to what you mention in "Excellence Was Expected." I do know that the 996 C2 came out in 98 and the 996 C4 didn't come out until Jan.99.

Someone who might know is Bruce Anderson. His email is bruce1485@aol.com

Go to the TSB section and sort them by year. All of the 1998 and some of the 1999 TSBs were for updated parts. (Although they were doing a 3rd rev of coolant tanks as late as 2002) :lol:
