993 Production Figures for the UK.

As far as I am aware the figures are correct but if anyone knows otherwise then please advise.

Mine was sold and registered in 1993, where are the 1993 figures?

Or do we assume/guess they are mixed into the 1994 figures?

If so then there are less 1994 registered cars than the number shown.

Either '93 is missing or '94 is wrong, right?
Question

1993 is the true 993 year, maybe there is a special list somewhere else?

1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

Dom, or anyone else, how would I find out how many Carrera S Vesuvius cars (with the Steel Grey bits, not full Vesuvius cars) were built???

Serious question....r/h manuals only.

The figures will be for model years not calendar years.
Model years "generally" go from August to July, but not always. So cars built from August 1993 to July 1994 would probably be counted as MY '94.

I heard that there was only one, as its so desireable it was released as a press car. After all the journalists had trashed about it in I heard it got smashed into the Armco on a track day and the body shell was badly damaged.

The last I heard some gypsies had bought it and said they thought they would be able to fill it and make it look OK again.

They were on the South coast somewhere, then I lost track of it.

Hope this helps.

I suspect that was how they classified (for the purpose of these statistics) the later cabrios which were delivered ex-works with a hardtop as standard. Dont know

1997 Porsche 993 Carrera 2S

PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2012 2:25 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

They are rare beasts - all of them. I think they made/sold about 4 times as many 996s and even more 997s... Hence why Porsche is still around today.

I've seen thses figures before. Anybody know what a COUPE / CABRIO is? Confused Or is it just a car which wasn't classified correctly?

I assumed it was a data anomaly, i.e. it could either be a coupe or cabrio, for some reason the info wasn't recorded properly and it went into a 'coupe / cabrio' catch-all categorisation?

Certainly doesn't look like a specific model designation (or even a cab with a hardtop) to me as there are one or two cars in most model years, from 1994 onwards? Dont know

1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:17 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Sorry, I can't offer a definitive explanation as to why there is a Coupe / Cabrio and a Cabrio listed separately. I can only assume that it may have been some kind of clerical error on Porsche's part.

Although not shown in the production numbers it is believed that there were approximately fourteen Turbo Cabriolets produced in 1995. I don't know how many of these were L/H drive as opposed to R/H drive cars.

1996 Porsche 993 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:35 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Ignoring the pre-1996 MY non-VR cars, there were only 279 manual VR C2 Coupes and 274 VR C4 Coupes sold in the UK.

That compares to 251 manual 2S and 181 4S (all VR obviously).

That's really surprised me in terms of the numbers not being so far off the 2S and 4S.....

96MY> UK VR Manual Transmission Coupes
C2 - 279
C4 - 274
C2S - 251
C4S - 181

You lardass wideboys aren't is such a rare position after all!

Assuming they were imported by dealer orders...

And the C2 numbers are high...

Do the numbers reflect Price or popularity?

Question

Let's not get too hung up on numbers / rarity, after all the Morris Marina is one of the rarest cars on the road now...
