Hi, sorry if this is a stupid question.
If a 944 being touted as a turbo should it say that it is a turbo on the v5?

Basically, it does not therefore I'm guessing a replica?
thanks
Ian

If you're concerned as to whether it's a genuine turbo or a replica, it's easy to tell from the first few letters of the chassis VIN. It's not unusual for V5 documents to be "inaccurate".

Normally aspirated 944's VINs start with

WPOZZZ94

whilst turbos start with

WPOZZZ95
