Looking for a comprehensive list of the 59 GTS's produced, not counting the 15 which were Club Sport versions. Not 924 Carrera GT, not GTR's. Just the GTS's.
Even if the data / list was produced years ago it will help, i.e., "this person owned GTS # 0012 in 1995, but we don't know where it is today." Any data after 1983 will help.
Thanks, guys.

I’m not convinced by the ‘15 Club sports’ Every GTS presented is a ‘Clubsport’.

If the data were available I think it would have been listed the book The Porsche 924 Carrera by Roy Smith

I think Porsche did build 15 GTS with a full list of race options like roll cage, race seats and most importantly the dry sump set up. But subsequent cars owners spec’d them with Clubsport options like the cage and seats but not the dry sump. They look like Clubsports. The have some spec like Clubsports. But are not the original 15

I’d love to see the list too

I agree that if the data were available Smith most likely would have had it and that's the first place I looked...and then Barth's book. I doubt that even Porsche knows where the 50 or 59 cars are...perhaps a few, but not all. As for the Club Sport model, again I agree that Porsche built 15, at least two of which I am fairly certain reside(d) in the US, but again there probably are those that are modified to that that spec.
The only thing "for certain" are the assigned chassis numbers 93BS720001-93BS720059 and engine numbers 470001-470059.

Now the question is Tim, have you per chance stumbled upon a car that you think may be a GTS and you are doing research to confirm this ???

Upon further inspection of Smith's book there is a list of cars that I overlooked. What in particular are you looking for Tim?

Nope. Not looking to confirm. Just doing research. I found a few VIN's so far on various auction sites as cars were sold.

Do you have Smith's book?
That's the only list I have available and I'm not quite sure how accurate it is. As a last resort I would be happy to transcribe it here if you think it will help you if you don't have it.
