Does anyone know these codes

Hey guys,

I searched online for these codes and I couldn't find anything.

Any help in decoding them would be appreciated!

Visit your dealer with your vin and they'll pull the full options for your car.

C36 means it was made for the Canadian market. Country codes are usually listed first and all start with C plus two digits.

E10 appears to be a group option. A few options clustered together at the factory. See this link. It pertains to the 993 but indicates it's difficult to nail down exactly what it is by year and model. All of the EXX codes appear to deal with interior.

Welcome. Interesting the country is listed as Canada but it's a US spec.

I had the impression that they built them for "markets" and the C02 (rest of USA) would have covered Canadian deliveries. (C03 is Cali).

I just did a google scrub-down for a guy in Japan that was missing a country code. Never figured out why.

Be careful with the dealer and even Porsche. The problem is that Porsche re-uses option codes. When they print up a description today it translates to the last usage of the code which is not necessarily correct for your specific earlier model. I have seen Porsche certficates of authenticity that are incorrect for this very reason. It is best to find a source that knows the period of your car.

For the North american 968 there are a few differences in the canadian 968.

C36 canadian emissions of course. There was also a standard canadian package which included heated seats and headlight washers. The kilo speedo and cabriolets got a rear seat with lap belt where the US cars got a double glove box unit in the rear. The final North American 968 produced by Porsche was a coupe and it went to Canada.

When I first saw the breakdown, I was thinking about the Co2 sensor too. We use the 3 wired one here in CA and not the single wired one they use everywhere else.

I'm guessing you already know the one you didn't circle.

Its even funny thing is that I don't have any side molding currently It was already gone when I bought the car a year ago. And I wanted that too!

Lol I wouldn't cry about missing side molding, 944s look lot cleaner & better without them.But I guess it will be a question of taste.Here is a side view of my ex 83 without molding,it came this way from the factory
