Richard E,

Great to see you here, Welcome. Thanks for the input. If you take a look at your chassis number the 7th. and 8th. numbers from the left should be 93 designating the 930 the 911 would be a 91 in that spot.

In 1981 the 10-digit V.I.N. changed to a 17-digit number that we still use today.

The year code changed from the 3rd digit to the 10th digit.

An example would be WPOAAO910BS120001.

WP0– (World producer code-W=Germany, P=Porsche, 0=division)

AA0 – (VDS – Vehicle destination) AAO is USA and ZZZ is Rest of World.

91 – (First and second digit of Porsche type) 91 for 911 and 93 for 930

O – (Test digit)

B – (1981)

S – (manufacturing location/ Stuttgart)

1 – (Third digit of Porsche Type - 911)

2 – (Body type-911SC coupe USA/Canada)

0001 – Sequential Number.
