911 vin?

Tried and search about it but didn't find my answer. Maybe partially.

Does the 930 comes with the 930xxxxx VIN number even for a car sold in Canada?

Tried a 930 last week. Biggest mistake of my life as I can't stop thinking about it. WOW. The looks alone would be worth it to me...

Thanks in advance for your help.

Found this in someone elses thread but may help to answer your question. Canada would be included in "Rest of World" so depending on the year which is the 4th number, the 5th number in the vin I would assume to be a "7" which would indicate ROW car. I believe they changed the VIN's to the newer standardized numbering in the mid 80's

Hope this helps~

Looks like it has a later model front bumper - fog lights & headlight

washers were different in 1979.

My 87 is considered a 911 turbo... The 930 VIN designation ended in 1980 when they VIN's went from 10digit to 17digit.

ALL 911 Turbos (930) from 1975-1979 started with 930 regardless of destination. MY 1980 USA cars continued this but RoW changed.

That steering wheel is not correct for a 1979, it was introduced in 1985. The 1979 had the three spoke wheel. 1979 also didn't have power seats. It also has the 1984+ front valence and 1980+ headlight squirters. Something is not right with this picture.

And later dash, headlight knob, windshield antenna ... I'll bet that's a 1985-1986 930 and they have the wrong VIN. EDIT, just saw the VIN posted above showing it to be a 1978SC.

My 82 is a 930 VIN....

Maybe the only thing that got changed on that car was the VIN if you get what I'm saying.

Odd. 1982 should start with WPO... The WPO series started in 1981.

Maybe I am thinking it's a 93 VIN not 930. Maybe if I get off my ass and go out to the shop I'll check again.

Either way, were there any pictures of the engine on that car?
