Chassis numbers explained
A quick explanation of the chassis number codings.
example = WPOZZZ96ZPS800827,
breaking it down = W-PO-ZZZ-96-Z-P-S-8-00827
W = world vehicle identification code,
PO = Porsche.
ZZZ = non American, rest of the world.
96 = vehicle type.
Z = test code, (not sure what that means).
P = model year code, = 1993.
S = manufacturing site, presumably = Stuttgart, (N would be Neckarsulm).
8 = vehicle type (part of above).
00827 = actual vehicle number. (although the first 60 may never have
been used commercially as it was common practice for the factory to
withhold the first 60 numbers for factory use)
