Compliance Plate location

Recommended Posts

Where should the Aust Compliance Plate be located on an Australian-delivered 986 (1997)?  I always thought it should be on the RHS under the trim in the frunk?

It SHOULD be but on the car I am helping with, the plate isn't there. It IS an Australian car.  Not sure where else it could be on the early 2.5's.  The owner is quite confused as a sale is in the offing

Should be right here, this is my 996 but I am absolutely certain the boxster is exactly the same ..... or on the panel just above like the plate from google below

It's a little further down on the 986 from memory, we have a first year 986 Boxster if you want me to take a photo and upload for you.

Merv has just posted on our local Porsche email list that he's found out that the car is an NZ import and does not have the VIN plate attached in the normal AU cars position.

Confirmed by Porsche Melbourne I believe....

Thanks everyone.  Yes the plate was not in the normal position.  The PC Melb confirmed it is a NZ import! Explained now but useful info.

Hi Guys , 

other than the location in the picture are there any other locations on the 996 turbo that have the VIN numbers ie i know that there is one under the windscreen passenger side. are there any for example stamped on the chassis?
