VIN decoder lists vehicle as ROW ???

I ran 2 vin decoders on my '07 Cayman S and both make mention of the car as RoW spec. (Rest oF World)
I know what that refers to in older models but not the 987.
This is a car originally sold in the US, I have the window sticker.
Is there actually such a thing as a ROW 987 ?

I did some research and have found clues that because it is a PASM equipped car that this shows up as a RoW spec.

Is that correct,
If so are there other differences ?

I had a potential buy for the car but now they are concerned with this. Maybe concerned with Smog (although the window sticker says US ) or perhaps "Safety' equipment / specs.

Any help or insight would be very much appreciated.
13th digit = "8" = RoW

I think I would go with the Porsche Katalog information. It show the digit 8 before production number as North American version, not ROW. Page 398

Have you had it smog checked in California? If it smogs, the question is answered and problem is solved!
