    Hallo from Germany,

    Could someone on the forum kindly help me and run a carfax for a 997 Porsche, which has landed back here in Germany from the US, and I am keen to buy.

    VIN: WPO AB 299 17S730 770

    I miss my 9 years of Scuderia driving in the US, but being back in the Baviarian Forest and with 5 months snow a year, left me no other choice to choose a Porsche for all year driving.

    Thank you, in sentiment.... :)
    Regards
    Helmut

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but is there something stopping you from running the carfax yourself?

    @V8Fun,

    I tried, but as I am in Germany, the link tells me Error page. Possible German IP address???
    I don't know..

    That VIN doesn't work. Site says it's not valid.

    Did you try without the spaces?

    Carfax search field limits the number of characters. With the spaces, it truncates the last three. If you remove them, it finds the car. I think that OP could probably run the carfax himself now.

    Here's a quick screen shot, verifying it finds the car.

    Thanks folks for inputs, Post can be deleted....

    Helped me though, to change my mind to a choose a different stable.

    PS: After I used another browser, I managed to purchase a Caxfax report with a German IP address.
