    Model numbers

    This has always confused me, why go from a Porsche 911 (993) to a 911 (996) for exmaple? ...were there 994 and 995 prototypes that just didn't make it?!

    Here's a link which lists some of the 9xx models: http://www.infoideas.net/Porsche-Boxster/Porsche-Models.htm

    Anyone have a clue why Porsche jump about so much, and also what on earth they are going to do after the 911 (999)?!

    Re: Model numbers

    The clever people on my PCGB board answered this for me.

    Basically it looks like a combination of Porsche internal project numbers and also target release dates (eg. 993 = 1993).

    Seems very random!!

    ...BTW, sorry this thread was originally intentioned to go on the general 'Porsche' topic board.

    Unsure how I managed to put it on the Turbo one (I obviously spend too much time here!).

    Re: Model numbers

    Can you indulge us? Point the way for us to the PCGB thread that answers your question.
