1991 928 vin

We were told by a friend about a 928 that has been stored since 2008 in an aircaraft hanger.  The owner wants to sell and we are begining to investigate.  We queried the vin number on http://www.decodethis.com/VIN-Decoded/vin/WP0AA2927MS810348 .  This site says it's a GT but there is no badging on the rear of the car.  Does the vin contain this information?

vibration at 1500

Model: 928S, Year:1984, Mileage:73500, Type of use:Street use only
At 1,500 rpm the car shudders and also under acceleration at ANY speed. The Motor mounts where replaced in 2008 by the PO. The car was HIT in the RR and I replaced all the suspension on that corner. Car was checked as best we could to make sure it was not "crabbing" done the road. Any ideas?Thank you

restore 1978

I just purchased a 1978 model that has not run in the last 7 years. I plan to restore the 928 and would like to source some good manuals. I downloaded a copy of the shop manual but I would like something with more 'pictures' since I am a real novice at this! Would your please provide me with your recommendations for books and or web sites that will help me in this endeavor?

emmissions

Model: 928S, Year:1983, Mileage:83K, Type of use:Street use only
My 1983 928S appears to be a euro market car. I want to get it to pass NJ state emissions so I can drive it to work. It currently has no cat, but it does have air injection into the heads. Do I want to fit a cat with air injection, or is it enough to just have the injection into the heads?Thanks very much for your help!Glen

Model: 928S4, Year:1990, Mileage:33,900, Type of use:Street use only
Hello. I'm trying to identify all the option codes on my 1990 928S4 that are listed on the sticker under the carpet under the rear hatch. I've googled several 928 websites and found 928 option code lists explaining all the option codes on my car except 458 and 588. Can anyone please tell me what these two codes are? Thank you in advance. John Doak in Baltimore, MD Johnhuntd@Comcast.net

Insurance

Model: 928S4, Year:1987, Mileage:106000, Type of use:Street use only
I need advice the best way to cover my car incase of an accident. I currently have coverage through Liberty insurance but they dont insure cars with agreed value. I normally use the car during the summer and drive it out of town to Porsche events around the country. I've check with Leland and Hargerty but they limit location use. What are my other choices in regards to coverage?

engine dies

Model: 928, Year:1979, Mileage:43,000, Type of use:Street use only
At random times,although it progressively gets worse, the engine will instantly shut off. The electrics are functioning just no engine. After a couple of minutes to a few hours the car will restart but it will die again after a minute. The longer the car sits without running the long it runs after the initial restart. I've replaced the fuel pump relay and the external fuel pump, based on the recommendation of the local dealership but still no go. Any suggestions?

Changing all of the key mech.

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Engine (size, modifications): v8; Total Mileage: 39,000; Transmission type: Manual;

I have one key for all of the locks and a one key for the ignition. I've discovered that it is very difficult and expensive to get duplicates made. I also have 2 cylinders going bad. My question...is there a way that a 911, VW, Audi, etc. cylinder and ignition set could be used to replace the OEM set? If so which would you suggest?
