I'm no expert on split-windshield cars. But ping me anyway. Most of the work sorting out the chassis number ranges was done decades ago by Tom Birch, Mark Turczyn, Brett Johnson and others. You can also figure it out from the VIN DB above with some creative searching.

And if you're wondering about coupe 11556, it's a bent-window car with a split windshield installed. ;-)

Yes, according to Porsche for coupes. We can verify from period photos and existing cars that it was between 11355 and 11371, so consistent.
