Structure of the Porsche chassis numbers

The structure of the chassis nummer respectively the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) has changed several times in the history of Porsche. At the beginning it was a simple sequential number. After that, a system was introduced that made it possible to determine the model and the model year. Until finally in 1981 the internationally standardized 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) was used.

The different combinations are described in more detail below.

Porsche VIN model year 1980

In 1980 there was another adjustment of the division, but the total length of 10 digits was retained. The body type is no longer included, but the manufacturing factory has been added.
