One reason is that the VIN is created and associated with a particular car when the order for that car is entered into the computer systems that manage production. But the cars may be built in a different sequence than orders were entered, due to part availability, batching of things like paint, or all sorts of other reasons. So even if the VINs are created sequentially, it happens too early in the process to guarantee that it matches production order.And how about those stupid serial numbers-- why not assign number one to the first car, and number 2 to the second --- the first 30 "production" cars (now wondering what that means) would not be 1 through 30, fur sure.
Thanks. So an RC car is not the same car as "production" car.
So, like, a beta version?
Oops, noticed only now the status information on the linked pages for the trademark applications saying that both were abandoned. This must be the reason why there is no model designation on the car.
