In that case it is definitely based on the American 924S SE and being RHD is a hybrid. The strange thing is that the carpets are sided and would have to be specially made to do the conversion.


Not convinced that's correct, from memory the US SE had burgundy carpets and US style bumpers and side marker lights, more likely a Japanese or Hong Kong model.

But only the USA SE cars had the burgundy colour scheme and that is why I called it a hybrid and not a conversion, the carpet and the door cards can't be converted to RHD, they would have to be re-manufactured or in the case of the door cards a blank would have to be fitted in the left hand window switches.

I can't see Porsche agreeing to a special order using a unique design used on one of their special edition models, it would be like asking them to dec out a non-martini as a martini.

The English Le Mans code is 755 - the US SE 924S is a different code of 756. So as it is a 755 I believe it cannot be a US car. Just my opinion.
