1989 964 Carrera 4 Promotional Video and Showroom Poster


Vehicle Information: Model: 911 (964) Carrera 4; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 147,398;

I recently purchased a video tape named "Carrera Fest Final Cut". It is a Factory, Porsche Carrera 4 Introductory Video for 1989. I have also recently purchased a Porsche "Carrera 4 Circle" Showroom Poster for 1989. Both of these advertise the introduction and sales of the Porsche 911 (964). All of the cars in the video and on the poster are guards red with black leather interiors.The beginning of the video starts out with a shot from the air (Helicopter?) over the same circle of 1989 guards red 964 Porsches that are on the poster. Then as the helicopter circles the cars on the Weissach skid pad, the following statement begins to scroll down.In April 1989, 230 American Porsche Dealers got together to set out in the largest rally of the new Porsches ever held. Over 200 identical 911 Carrera 4s worth in excess of $18 million were gathered together at Porsches Weissach test facility. It marked the start of "Venture Tour". A unique journey through some of Germanys most beautiful countryside. These are the memories of that trip.Here is my question;Is my 1989 guards red, black leather interior, Porsche 911 (964) Carrera 4, in this video and or in the showroom poster? If so how can I prove it? Does Porsche know what VIN number cars were used for the video and or poster? It would be nice to know if my car was in the video and or poster. Perhaps even the position of the car in the picture might be known. I am sure Porsche would line them up in a very selective, methodical and symmetrical fashion. Here is why I think my 964 may be in the video and or poster;The video was shot in April 1989. My car has a manufactured date of February 1989 just two months prior to the video and poster being made. The video states 230 American Porsche dealers and over 200 identical 911 Carrera 4s were used. The last 4 digits of my cars vehicle identification number (VIN) is 0210.Finally in the video a unique see through clear glass or crystal etched Carrera 4, 964, silhouette picture mounted on a glass base about the size of a very large book was displayed. The local Porsche dealership has one of these in its display case. I believe one of these went to every dealership that participated. I have asked around our dealership for some possible information with no luck. I believe that the dealership has changed hands since 1989 and perhaps that is why I have been unsuccessful. I do know that my 964 has been in the local area since 1989.I know this may be a strange question to ask but every time I look at the poster I cant help but wonder if my 964 is in the picture? Thanks in advance for your help.
