Porsche Launches Historic Vehicle Documentation Portal

Porsche has launched a new online documentation portal that provides original product information for Porsche vehicles, the automaker announced.

With the recently launched Porsche Vehicle Documentation site (, users can now request a Porsche Production Specification (PPS) from their computer or smart device, using a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). They can also learn more about ordering a Porsche Classic Technical Certificate (CTC) and other documentation options available through Porsche and the national dealer network, the company said.

The Production Specification and Classic Technical Certificate both provide documentation on the car, the company said. The PPS contains the vehicle’s original production card specifications, including optional equipment, exterior and interior color, engine and transmission type, production completion date and manufacturer’s suggested retail price when available. It is available for all Porsche VINs and can only be ordered online through

The CTC includes an inspection by a Porsche technical expert at a qualified dealership. The inspection allows a greater level of detail about the car, including determining if original parts may have been replaced. It can also verify if the engine and transmission numbers and types currently in the vehicle match the original records.

The CTC technical evaluation includes inspection results for the exterior, interior, drive system, underbody and suspension, professional photos of the vehicle exterior and interior and a detailed summary of the Porsche vehicle’s inspection from the Porsche Classic-trained technician in a handsome package worthy of being displayed at your next meet-up.

A CTC can only be ordered at a Porsche Classic Partner or a qualified Porsche dealer, and are available for the 356, 914, 959, and 911 up to and including Type 996, the Porsche Boxster, Type 986, first generation Cayenne, as well as all four and eight-cylinder vehicles, like the 924, 928, 944, and 968, and the Carrera GT super sports car.
