For that year, no difference. Later years, the difference is if there is an airbag or not. It is readily apparent if the dash in question has an airbag cutout for the passenger side.

Did they melt down their tooling or something? I was under the impression they've been making batches every 6 years or so.

Checking voltage regulator is good idea. If that doesn't yield anything though, test the CD ignition box. If you have a spare try it. If no spare, replace it. If the original CDI box was okay its...

A set of custom designed, forged wheels for 4k USD is borderline theft. The price is so low I've often wondered how they do it. They claim they are FEA'd. Don't know if they are real-world tested.

Just to add fuel to the fire - they made lenses with clear signals too. Only for Italy. I think they were dropped in 73?

Yep, the problem is not the signal color. Amber and red are both acceptable for rear signals in North America. No one really knows why German manufacturers often equip North American cars with red...

Nice work.

You should have those AL hubs analyzed regularly. Those old cast AL hubs aren't great.

If those are 986 non-S Boxster brakes, they are the same piston sizes as 944 Turbo/ 968 brakes....

ABS did not become standard in North America until 1989, when it was standard on all 944 models. (It was standard on the '88 Turbo S however).

They are linked, in a sense. Did your local Porsche Classic say they contacted Classic in Germany? If not, I would send an inquiry to Germany. They might have more sources.

Many 986/996 plus people use it, but that would be the cable version. 986/996+ are all cable shifters (except for early 996 cup).

Looks like it maintains the rod connection? If so, could be fun. ...
