My car like any US/Canadian car, should have "ZZZ" on the trunk VIN but a VDS code on the others VIN locations, for digits 4, 5 & 6.

The chassis is build and VINed with "ZZZ" and when it's match to a US or Canadian order the other VIN digits; 4,5 & 6 (VDS Code) are defined accordingly.

In my case the VDS Code is "EA0":

E= Cabriolet/Targa
A= Engine for Canada
0= Active Restrain

Check page 44 of Porsche 911 Performance Handbook By Bruce Anderson, for the other VDS code defenition.
