Help with a VIN

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about purchasing a EURO 928 which the owner says is a 1978. All of the research I seem to be able to do is stating the VIN is a 1980. Can someone give me a definitive on the VIN?

It is 928 106 023 15

Your help is Hugely appreciated.

Usually the 4th number is the year. So a 78 would be 9288... The vin you provide also seems to have one number more than normal for an early 928. My suggestion is to post your query on the 928 subforum on rennlist as well and you'll get a definitive answer quickly. In particular, you could PM a rennlister named jadz928 (Jim Doer). He owns some preproduction press cars and is familiar with very early vins.

Thanks very much I just posted there as well. I do have a picture of the VIN and verified it and as I stated it looks correct. Thanks for your input

Turns out the supossed VIN I had was a part number to the radiator !! Go figure. But it gets better. That same number is on the title to the vehicle as the VIN. How that got transposed who knows. But it is there plain as day. I went back to the car and the real vin is 9288102297

Hey you dont have to be smart to own a Porsche right ?
