Does anyone know of a free online VIN equipment search site that actually works now?

I've found many mentioned in searching this site, but they have all been shut down and don't work anymore. Does anyone know of one that's up and running at the moment? I know I can send off to Suncoast (?) and pay a small fee but I need the result quickly and don't have time for that. I appreciate any assistance you might have on this.

Thanks, Particlewave. I appreciate the response. I guess I misstated what I was looking for. The VIN lookup site above is more generic information on that particular year Boxster. I'm looking for more information on this particular car. In searching I learn that what I'm looking for is sometimes called a window sticker generator. I don't need to reproduce the sticker, I would just like to know all the options in a particular car. Does anyone know of a site that currently works that can do that?

Thanks again.

Vinanalytics.com although it doesn't have all cars, including mine.

My car is not a manual. I do not have heated seat. And, a few other errors. YMMV.
