Free Build Sheet from Vin#

Over the weekend I found a series of posts on rennlist that provides the ability to view the original purchase price and build sheet using your VIN#. I thought I would repost it here because maybe others on the forum who have bought their Boxsters used don't have the original sticker info.

Steps to get this:

Hit control + link below & select copy link

https://admin.porschedealer.com/repo...AC29P38LA82824

Paste it into browser address and replace the vin# with your own
Now you can see &/or print the build info for your records. Hope this is useful for some of you!

p.s. FYI, the VIN above is unfortunately not mine....

I tried it and just got "This vehicle is not available". Maybe it does not work for older cars?

Unfortunately, it did not work for my '99. I checked my VIN a few times, my guess is that older cars are not in the system.

Failed on a '01S whose VIN I owned. Maybe the car has to be in inventory at a dealer?

Interesting. Will it work for non-US vehicles? VIN:

Mike - No, the car doesn't need to be presently at a dealer - it refers to the original data when acquired from a US dealership. The link is a bit tricky to use as on my computer for example (browser=safari) the link comes up & must be printed or it goes away. Hope this helps.

I don't know how far back it goes, but for sure it includes at least back to 1999 & probably further.

Paul - Sorry, this goes into a US dealer source, so I'm pretty sure you can't see non-US cars in this.
