968.net

Hi,  I recently purchased a -'92 Cab. I bought it in Phoenix and moved it to Missouri. It's a decent driver. I will be restoring to Concours if possible.

I'll be looking for sources for parts and repair advice. I have admired 968's since they were first produced.

Bill,

If you need any production related information and how it appeared when new just ask. I have a full database of 968 option codes and can tell you how your car compared to others.

Don't forget to join the Porsche club and the PCA 968 register.

Jeff

Jeff,

 

Thanks.  Do you need the VIN or should do something else to get the option codes? I hope the question is not dumb as I am new to Porsche ownership.

Bill,

I have a database with all the 968s. All I need are the last 3 digits of the VIN in order to look up your car. I have the associated options in my database.

Jeff

Jeff,

 

It's been a while since I've been on the site. If the offer remains to list the option on my 968, the last three VIN numbers are: 314.

 

Many Thanks,

 

Bill

Bill,

 

92 cab 314, here are the details:

 

#254 of 2,008 North American 968 cabs produced from 92-95

#254 of 667 1992 cabs

1 of 100 N7 Amazon green cabs (6th most popular color)

1 of 62 N7 Amazon green cabs paired with a black top and cashmere/black interior

Factory options include the paint, LC partial leather in cashmere/black, and the tiptronic. You car has a November build and has some unusual early production features such as a recessed hood badge and an edged rear emblem. 

I've seen your car before. The previous owner used to hang out on this site. I saw the car back in May of 2003 in CA with 98k miles. I saw it again in Feb of 2008 up for sale.

Jeff,

That is incredible. The 968 world is small, no?The car sold in 2008 to a fireman in Arizona and then I purchased it in May.  I have rebuilt the front suspension and have had the interior freshened.  I would like to do something with dash cracks other than a dash cover. Any suggestions?Further, the car came with 18" wheels from a 2000, 911. Is there any advantage to the larger wheels and tires?

Sorry for all the questions. I am more familiar with the British Leyland cars I played with in the past than with a 968.

Thanks again for the info. My 968 is all stock except for the wheels.

Bill

Bill,

To do it right you should replace the dash and the good news, nice black dashes are the easiest to find. The replacement is a job but can be done and then soak the replacement with Meguiars #40 protectant to keep it looking new.

Thanks

Jeff

Jeff,

 

Thanks. I'll begin my search for a dash and then hopelfull complete the replacement over the winter.

 

Bill

Post the last 3 digits of your VIN and I'll provide you the details.

Jeff

Jeff,

 

Thanks. I'm traveling on business and will post the vin when I return Sunday.

 

Bill

Bill,

Welcome to the 968 Family!

Don

Don,

 

Thanks. I have a to to learn.  I enjoy the car more every time I drive it.
