993 C4S Rear Window Shatter

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 20,000;

I have seen two 1996 4S cars with shattered rear windows, both of which were replaced by Porsche and both of which shattered again without any external causes. One shattered right in front of my eyes with no-one anywhere even close to the car. Apparantly there is some electrical issue and Porsche kept very quiet. Are you aware of any cutoff date after which the problem was fixed during the manufacturing period? My understanding is that 97 and 98 4S cars did not have this problem. I am looking for a used 4S, and wondering whether I should stay clear of early cars after a specified VIN number. Thanks for your reply.
