Why would anybody get a certificate of authenticity for a 993?


Hand It's required for Illuminati membership.

Correct '95 model year was TiptronicS.

Are Tiptronic cheaper than 'S'. Indeed there is a scalable factor to be applied as the 'auto' option is a good few bags short of a manual Rolling Eyes

But actually it's not a bad gearbox and (excluding PDK which is the finest gearbox known to man) I'd rather have 4 speeds than the 7/8 speed variants what

So it looks like the CoA is incorrect then. I only got it because it was free too.
It also looks like I've got the wrong steering wheel but I'm not going to loose any sleep over it. Dont know


Do the buttons on the steering wheel actually work? If so then happy days.

They do indeed. Thumb
I had seen other 993 Tips without buttons but thought maybe it was optional extra when new.

Do you have the option code 432 (Steering wheel with tiptronic control) on your options sticker?

Question

How bizarre to have an incorrect certificate, and the wrong steering wheel.

I wonder if a previous owner read the COA, thought oh ***** my cars been butchered so installed the S spec ...... not realising it was the certificate all along that was wrong Grin

The more I think of it, the more intriguing it becomes.

Just looked and it doesn't have 432 on the option sticker.
It looks like it must have been retro fitted at some point so mystery solved.

Porsche offered the tiptronic s steering wheel and other bits you needed as a kit, so if you wanted to upgrade your tiptronic to an S then you could.
Mine is a early 1994 no buttons, but easy to retro fit or with flappy paddles as some have done.
