Engine Serial Number Query

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I have a '79 911 Targa. Trying to figure out two things: 

1>Decoding the engine serial number. It's 6291078

2>Should my VIN and engine number share the same numbers? 

 

Thank you!!

6291078 = 3 liter, 179 HP, type 930.04 engine - manufactured in 1979.

 

If it is the original 5-speed transmission then it should be a 915.61 - 5-speed gear box.

915.61 was used in 1977, 1978 and 1979 (for USA and Canada).

 

If it is a Sportomatic then it is likely a 925.16.

      In the last 2 weeks I bought my first Porsche - a 2001 Carrera 4 tiptronic coupe.
       
      1) Is it supposed to say Carrera 4 or Carrer 4S on the back?
       
      2) Is there a Porsche specific website where I can find a photo of the correct rear decklid badges for each 996 model? I tried Google for 2 hours last night.
       
      I simply trying to determine if my 01 Carrera 4 should read Carrera 4 or Carrera 4S on the back.
       
      Thank you!

      Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
