Specification of car as originally built

Apologies if this has been asked before:
I'd like to check the original spec of my car as ordered/delivered. I remember that at one time, porsche and/or PCGB offered a service where you submit the chassis number and they would give you a printed copy, for a fee. I can't find any reference to this anywhere. Does anyone know how to get these details.
The car is a US 3.2 carrera that i bought in the US in 1995 and imported to the UK in 1997. I've had it all this time. A local body shop is doing some touch up work and said that the paint code on the bonnet doesn't match the color of the car so i wanted to see if there was an option for a different bonnet color (black) vs the rest of the car (silver). There is no sign of any re-spray

clearly I have the VIN/Chassis number and no offence intended, but I'm not sure posting the VIN on a forum is very wise!
maybe i'm being too cautious?

I recognize that car......
brilliant, thanks.
interesting that there is no mention of the rear spoiler. It has a "turbo" style rear spoiler and no front rubber lip, so i suspect the rear spoiler was either a dealer-fit /put on later.
thanks  again
