How Many 930 Coupes Were Made in 87?

How Many 930 Coupes were made and how many were imported in the US in 1987 ? Just interested.

Randy Leffingwell's Porsche 911 buyers guide says 1,727 turbos were built in MY '87. Doesn't provide import info.

I posted a list for all 930 production over on Rennlist several months back. Copied the info out of the Porsche 911 Redbook. Oddly, the list isn't written very clearly for 1987 in my Redbook.

It says there were 1158 Turbos produced, with chassis VINs that start with WPOZZZ... But the ending serial numbers only go from -0001 to -0720. WTF? There are only 720 VINs for 1158 cars?

It then lists 88 Turbos for Canada (WPOJAO...0001-0088).
I assume those must be all coupes, as the next line lists 142 Canadian Turbo Cabs, eh (WPOZZZ...0001-0142).

Turbo Cabs US: 183 (WPOEBO...0001-0183)
Turbo Targas: 69 (WPOZZZ...0001-0069)
Turbo Targa US: 87 (WPOEBO...0001-0087)
Turbo Slant Nose: 87 (WPOZZZ...0001-0087) <----- I presume these must be ROW coupes.
Turbo Slant Nose Targa: 87 (WPOZZZ...0001-0087)
Turbo Slant Nose Cab: 87 (WPOZZZ...0001-0087)
Turbo Slant Nose US: 87 (WPOEBO...0001-0087) <----- Coupes?
Turbo Slant Nose Targa US: 87 (WPOEBO...0001-0087)
Turbo Slant Nose Cab US: 87 (WPOEBO...0001-0087)

So, looking at that list, 1158 (ROW & US) + 88 (Canada)+ 87 (S/N ROW)+87 (S/N US) = 1420?
But no breakdown of exactly how many were ROW v. US.
