Depends what you mean. Earliest UK cars were registered about May from what I recall. I had a June one and that was a dealer ordered car.

"June" - Are you sure yours wasn't a 2009 car. Question

I'm pretty sure that the launch of the 997.2 was August 2008 (for the 2009 Model Year) so earliest UK cars were late 2008/early 2009 on a 58 plate.

The plate was an xx08 on the C2S.

Mine was first registered 30/06/2008 (08 plate).

The guys at Center Gravity pointed out my VIN, the last 3 digits are very low, they said those digits related to build numbers.

I think mine is a launch spec/demo or something as it has PCCB's, Sport Chassis, PSE, Short Shift, Sports Adaptive seats, Carbon Pack etc. I've seen 2 others specced like mine, same colour, just slight differences.
