87/88? I wouldnt mind betting yours is NZ new.

Yeah it makes sense. How would I confirm? I could talk to people at Giltraps and see if they have any more specific details.

Very interesting! Thanks Schattenblau. Looking more and more like it's nz new.
Mine arrived Sep 88 so 6 months after they started bringing in the 16v. At $66k! What was a 911 or an M3 worth then I wonder?

On carjam it's saying that it's now under a new plate, ERP553.

Does anyone know much more about it?

Yip, Mk2 Simon owned it and put steel wheels on it. Then Choopy purchased it and repainted it. I think it ended up with running coilovers?

Yeah, it's in a bit more of a state than the picture earlier in this thread! Planning on an engine rebuild (have ordered the parts already) which should be a steep learning experience given I've never taken an engine apart but hoping I can get some help off here when needed! Will start posting once I get into it.
