It’s actually WP0CA2992XS652219. Vin Analytics comes back with ‘not available’ when I try it.

The VIN decodes successfully as shown below.

However, it will be rare to find an online VIN decoder that can provide the options of any particular car. I say this because the options information is not embedded into the VIN. The Porsche VIN only provides year, model, body type, engine, air bag, factory, and unique serial number information. No options codes are in there.

To get the options associated with a particular car, you would need to find a site that has a data base that references the unique serial number to the exact list of options installed on that particular car. That data base is very hard to get and thus, difficult to find online.

Your best bet is to contact Porsche or ask someone to take a picture of the options list contained in the label under the front trunk.

My 2000 S VIN is one of the few % that doesn't seem to be available in the various Porsche build sheet databases too...

Thanks for that! I had just about resolved myself to seeing "VIN not found" and then this.
