Vin Data

There is a website that does vin decoding for free. I asked them to enter Porsche data and the reply was that they needed someone to provide them with the breakdown logic. If you have this, visiti www.vindecode.com and let them know. It works really well on Dodge, GM etc .. Lets get some real sports car data there !

My Boxster is from Finland. Porsche has been known for a long time as "outsourcing" their assembly and manufacturing.
