Seinfeld Did Not Get The Last 911 (993) or Did He?


Recommended Posts


My old man and I are a bit confused as to who has the last 993. Seinfeld has his car custom ordered as we did and his vin was wp0aa2998ws321327. Ours is wp0aa2992ws321341. Wouldn''t that indicate that ours is 14 cars newer than the one that is supposed to be the "LAST"? Maybe that''s why he sold his and was just waiting for us to trade ours in. Anyway, I don''t mean to start a big controversy or anything bit I am really interested to see if this is the last body ever produced of the 993. We were also told that 2 of each model were made just before this one and put away in their museum which would explain the difference in numbers on the vin between ours and Seinfeld''s.

Ours took a while to get since my dad always wanted a 911 and custom ordered a bunch of stuff on it. He has stainless door jams, stainless exhaust, rear seat delete, racing seats, brakes, turbo wheels, premium sound, and a few other factory custom options put in this car. It says this car was mfg dec of 97 and delivered mar of 98.

Our dealer which we have had a good relationship with and purchased several cars from over the years got real quiet about this car once we asked him about it. No response to our inquiry as to the late vin. Perhaps they were told to shut up so Seinfeld didn''t get pissed when he found out he didn''t have the first and the last.

Should we get this car documented or something? We have just over 5 K on this car and want to know if we should continue to take it out a few times a year to enjoy it or put it in bubble wrap. If you need any more info on this car please let me know.

I appreciate all your help!

Whatever the case may be of its order on the production line, I would try to not forget that your car is a machine that is meant to be driven. Letting it sit is actually bad because it dehydrates the car's rubber seals, guibo (if it has one, not sure on these cars), o-rings, and bushings.

While it may be interesting to find out whether Jerry Seinfeld's car is in fact the latest production 993, I wouldn't stop driving the car is a result of it. You bought a high performance driving machine. Use it! :thumbup:

Finally, I would pay attention to the digits that come before the last digits which you seem to be judging the car's production number off of. Seinfeld's says "2998" while yours says "2992". This could have been a certain batch of cars that went through the "custom" line that your car was on, in which case your car is 6 batches behind. Again, I'm not familiar with Porsche's number system, but this could be the case. I would think that if Jerry Seinfeld wanted the last production Porsche, thats exactly what he got.
