You are wrong on a number of things here... the 93d007*** number is the engine serial number, not the VIN number... The 930.101.### number you are quoting has nothing to do with the engine number... that is simply a part on the engine, most likely the fan housing because it sits right up top and is the first number people see.

The VIN number is a WP0ZZZXXXXXXX number and will be located in the front trunk area which I know the OP knows where this is just above the spare tire. Door jam should have one too but I understand this is missing... most importantly this car should have an import tag on it...

EDIT: Oh and unless Porsche painted the door latch on ROW 930's that drivers door has been repainted... as I would suspect much of the car has~

Time to do a bit more research~

Also stamped into knee plate above padding drivers side. And yes, engine has different Number, 930.101.###.3R, or similar. Euro side front fender turn signals missing?
Also front Valance has integrated fog lamps, this didn't occur till later?
Love that its sans a sunroof. one less issue to deal with. smog pump still installed? Cruise control module?
Mine came with original KMH speedo in a box, gave me a little more re-assurance of mileage.
Curious about the "door braces" being discussed, does this require just removing the door panels to see? Haven't noticed any door welding on my 1980 euro. although it was brought into the states as a 79, I think this avoided some attention.
Awesome purchase, beautiful car!

I am wrong about VIN#, only the 1980 ROW had 93A007####. was mistaken. guess I have a bit more research to do.
There was an A series for 1980, B series for 81, etc.. gets confusing.
Also, what is my engine number stamp 930.101.104.3R?
Should start a new post on this!

1983 VINS??
911 Turbo 3.3 Coupé 93x DS 00 0001 to 93x DS 00 1015
911 Turbo 3.3 Coupé US & CDN 93x DS 05 0001 to 93x DS 05 0065

Info from:

930 Production numbers between 1975-89 available?
