There is a red 1989 930S cab. listed on Ebay right now. The owner is posting the quantity of 89 930S cabs. made with updates as others write in. Sometimes you will see 28 cabs. made on these listings but the intercompany memo that we have earlier in the thread lists 75 cabs made in 89. I am not sure if this is worldwide or M505 for the US.

Does anyone have more info from a factory issued document? It would be nice to turn up something.

I am hoping to start looking for an 89 cab. at some point in the near future and would like to know.

The item number is: 2205 4607 7249

Here is some of the conversation.

"HELLO EBAYERS! A FELLOW PORSCHE ENTHUSIAST GAVE ME PRODUCTION FACTS FROM THE PORSCHE BOOK "EXCELLENCE WAS EXPECTED" THAT STATES ONLY SEVEN M505 SLANTNOSE CABRIOLET'S MADE IT INTO THE USA MARKET OUT OF 41 MADE WORLDWIDE SO KEEP THAT IN MIND WHEN BIDDING ON THIS SPECIAL CAR. ALSO WHEN I DESCRIBED THE CAR IT IS SUPPOSED TO SAY THE CAR IS FREE OF ANY DAMAGE OF ANY KIND."

"1989 only produced 32 slantnose option 505 cars in Europe and 147 in the United States. I have received a few differant claims on Cabriolet figures but most Porsche connoisseurs agree on 41 and how many of those are in the States I have not been able to verify."

"Q: Hello Jeremy, congrats on having owned such a beautiful part of Porsche history. In regards to your production # info I can firmly say that there were 7 USA m505 cabriolets made in 1989. Total 1989 cabriolet m505 production worldwide is in fact 41. Jan-27-10
A: Thank you very much Rolf! I will update my auction with this information. Kind Regards,"
