      Hi Robert. Apologies for the delay in replying. Looks like your Porsche has the standardised 17 digit VIN number which cam into effect from 1981.

      Hi John
      Thank you for taking the time to write to me. Your 928 sounds wonderful. Especially the 5.0l part. Amazing. Have you checked the VIN number coding to see what the original spec of the car was when it left the factory. The WPO series are easy to decode and widely available on the web to undrstand?
