    998, 999, ???

    Hi, I know I have hardly made any posts, but I have a question, after the 997 comes the 998... then I am guessing the 999, but what comes next, a 1000?
    This question was raised on another forum, and since I knew someone here would probably know! I thought I would ask and see!
    Thanks!

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    It starts over with 901.

    Then I'm looking forward to when they get around to 904 again........

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    911 is the only name. Others really doesn't matter.

    They matter on discussion boards. If someone for instance says their 1994 911 is having problems , in some markets that's a 964 and in others it's a 993 . Model year 1989 saw two 911s in US - the " traditional " one and the first plastic bumpered 964s.

    These are internal model designations, they have a certain tradition but aren't mandatory.
    So it could be 1001 or it could be 001 or let's say C01 or whatever.
    Difficult to say right now, the Cayenne is E1, although some people use 955.

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    I don't think Porsche would waste their time in a legal battle with Peugeot again .

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    and besides that... who cares?

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    Cayenne started as E1 and future versions will be E1a, E1b, etc. .The four door is the E2 , so perhaps the post "999" 911 will start with E3 or E4 .

    Re: 998, 999, ???

    i think porsche reserves the designations with letters, ie 9PA (cayenne) for non-real porsches

    there are plenty of 9XX numbers without 0 in the middle (which peugueot has copyrighted) remianing

    It would just seem odd to follow the 998 or 999 with a lower number like the 970 or such , but with Porsche hell bent on retro, maybe it will be the Gmund 2 or 357 !
