1996 993 C2 Cabriolet Vin# & other questions


Vehicle Information: Model: 993 C2 Cabriolet; Year: 1996; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 45,000;

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions; we are driving 1996 993 convertible, vin# WPOCA2999TS340182, and still trying to learn more about the vehicle. [1] I found a hand written note inside the service manual "1st '96 Cabriolet". Is our car the first 993 cabriolet built for model year 1996, or just the first owners first cabriolet? [2] Porsche Birmingham looked up our car somewhere in the internet, and told us that it came with "an upgrated sound system" but I cannot match the option codes to this information (CO2, 233, 329, 398, 437, 438, 445, 454, 490, 551, 586). [3] Paint code is "741" - what's the difference between the two paint codes for "Black" that was available back in 1996? [4] I've heard that early 1996 993's with varioram came with the short transmission of the 1995 models, which made the car a real sprinter-correct? Any thoughts?
