Does the Vin have an "N" in it for Neckarsulm?  If it does, the closest
Porsche factory is 50km away in Zuffenhausen, proof enough of where it
was assembled.  The history of these cars is pretty well known, the only
thing that might sink your plans is if someone comes back and says the
cars were assembled by Audi from Porsche parts, then you're in a very
grey area.  The way it's worded, if an engine was outsourced,  the
factory configuration of such a car would make the bone stock model
illegal.  Not the case with the 944, but could set up a bit of a
"God's a kid with an ant farm. He's not planning anything."
