But regarding the Carfax: being a 1983, and a Turbo, the VIN should not be in Carfax's database. 1983 911 Turbos were not imported to the U.S. And AFAIK Carfax only keeps records of North American cars (unless they've recently expanded?). Turbos were not imported from MY 1980 thru '85.
I have an '85 930 Factory Slant and there's a CarFax History Report on the car since it came into the country in '85. Shows the first registration ( Vermont ) in '85 and everything up to 2002 when I moved back to Wisconsin from Boston. Since Wisconsin doesn't require periodic vehicle inspections by an authorized state inspection like on the East Coast, nothing else shows up on the CarFax report.
