964 Widebody

Thanks MagCuda for your earlier reply.

I have offered this car for sale on ebay, and have been informed that there was no widebody 964 availble in 1990. The vin confirms the year, and the wide body has been authenticated by two separate Porsche specialists. What's the deal? Can't you order a widebody anytime you want to? Does anyone know how to confirm this car was a factory widebody?

Thanks!

From what I could tell by the VIN from eBay is this:

It is a Carrera 2 Coupe

Engine Code : M64.01

Transmission Code: G50.03

Order Type: 964340

Four Options ordered:

M158 Blaupunkt RENO Radio SWR 46

M454 Automatic Speed Control

M494 Additional Amplifier

M650 Electrical Sliding Roof

Model Year is definitely 1990 from the VIN also. No reference that I can tell about wide or narrow body unless the "340" after the 964 in the order type means something?

Not sure if that helps? But that is all I can tell....

The 964-340 reference is for a California specific model produced before the generic US model was released.

Any car whose model is nominally produced as a narrow body but has been optioned with a wide body will show option 491 on the build label. AFAIK, the 964 Turbo body was not released until the arrival of the 3.3 964 Turbo in 1991 and I'm guessing it's pretty unlikely that the factory would have pre-empted that release by building a special.

It's much more likely that the wide body panels have been fitted subsequently.

Regards

Dave
