Can anyone run a VIN for me for options list?

1999 Boxster

WP0CA2984XU624417

Can anybody run this and figure out the option list? The one site I have can't find the car. (Not uncommon for the site- it doesn't pull up Boxsters I own, so I know I'm listing a good VIN)

I talked to the dealer and the option list is missing from the frunk, so no luck there.

Thanks!

Rick

You may be able to order a new build sticker through the dealer. I can check to see if there is an associated part number for it.

Also, I think the "certificate of authenticity" through PCNA may have options listed.

I'm just trying to figure out how the car is optioned. It's for sale 750 miles away. Too far for a road trip. I can tell it has some option goodies, just can't see everything from the pictures.

Thanks!

try this website

https://admin.porschedealer.com/reports/build_sheets/

it lists Porsches built with their original options and price
you can enter your VIN or look at the entire build for a year and model

I ran yours and there was nothing listed, sorry. It must not have all builds

This is what I got when I printed mine

That site only works for about 25% from what I've read. Mine doesn't come up, but I have all of the original documentation anyway (even the window sticker)

It really annoys me that when you go to buy a part Porsche insists that you provide a vin number as they say this will list all details of that particular car. Try giving the vin and ask Porsche if the vehicle has a single or double IMS bearing and they are unable to tell you. You can't tell me that they did not keep a record of what bearing was used in a particular vehicle.
In this respect Porsche are acting most unethically. So glad you guys in the states took action against them !!
