I just googled the VIN. Got just 2 hits both ads for the car being offered for sale in Buena Park CA. $22000. 58108 miles. Blue exterior color. Grey interior color.

If you are looking for the car's history CARFAX is probably your best bet. The seller should have a CARFAX report on the car that he should share with you. (At least when I was looking to buy a 2003 Turbo the Porsche dealer salesman gave me a copy of the CARFAX report along with the paperwork/inspection report for the CPO.)

If you want to know what options the car came with the VIN may tell you that but I don't know the procedure for getting that info via the VIN. IIRC there should be a tag stuck to the underside of the front trunk lid that lists the option codes. These codes are documented somewhere on the web.

I just did a search on something like "porsche vin decoder" and got some hits. One hit after I entered the VIN gave me this info. I printed it to a PDF file and will attache them:

Will give you the options it was originally made with. I found it very useful since a lot of car sites don't list the exact options, but list useless things like cruise control and air conditioning. Good way to be able to compare apples to apples. Good luck!!
