My '10 nismo vin shares the same first 13 of your VIN with the exception of the 9th character or check digit being an "X". Hope this helps you in your quest.

Thanks Guys. Interesting, it seems one cannot tell from a VIN if a car was originally a Nismo version or not, the serial number is the only clue.

Porsche uses the VIN to code whether the car is a Turbo, Targa, RS or whatever - see below.

Also note the 2010 car does not seem to follow the decoding scheme shown in the picture exactly.

Note for JN1AZ4EH3AM50

JN1= Japan is the same

A= VQ37HR is the same

Z= Z car which is the same

4= Model change which is the same (0-9)

E= Should be 4 for coupe, but isn't

H = Should be "A" or "E" for restraint system type, but isn't

3 = Check digit being a random 0-9 or "X" is the same

A= Model year was "9" in 2009, now a letter

M= Tochigi manufacture plant which is the same

5 = The beginning of the serial number series. Porsche uses this position to code for the type of car. A Nismo would probably have a unique digit here if Nissan did the same, but my Base car and the Nismo both share a "5" here.
