Determination That Nonconforming 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and 
Carrera 4 Passenger Cars Are Eligible for Importation

AGENCY: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of determination by NHTSA that nonconforming 1992 
Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 passenger cars are eligible for 
importation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This notice announces the determination by NHTSA that 1992 
Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 passenger cars not originally 
manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety 
standards are eligible for importation into the United States because 
they are substantially similar to vehicles originally manufactured for 
importation into and sale in the United States and certified by their 
manufacturer as complying with the safety standards (the U.S.-certified 
versions of the 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4), and they are 
capable of being readily modified to conform to the standards.

DATES: The determination is effective as of the date of its publication 
in the Federal Register.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ted Bayler, Office of Vehicle Safety 
Compliance, NHTSA (202-366-5306).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under section 108(c)(3)(A)(i) of the National Traffic and Motor 
Vehicle Safety Act (the Act), 15 U.S.C. Sec. 1397(c)(3)(A)(i), a motor 
vehicle that was not originally manufactured to conform to all 
applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards must be refused 
admission into the United States on and after January 31, 1990, unless 
NHTSA has determined that the motor vehicle is substantially similar to 
a motor vehicle originally manufactured for importation into and sale 
in the United States, certified under section 114 of the Act, and of 
the same model year as the model of the motor vehicle to be compared, 
and is capable of being readily modified to conform to all applicable 
Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
    Petitions for eligiblity determinations may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR Part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA determines, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this determination 
in the Federal Register.
    Liphardt & Associates, Inc. of Ronkonkoma, New York (Registered 
Importer R-90-004) petitioned NHTSA to determine whether 1992 Porsche 
911 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 passenger cars are eligible for importation 
into the United States. NHTSA published notice of the petition on April 
25, 1994 (59 FR 19748) to afford an opportunity for public comment. The 
reader is referred to that notice for a thorough description of the 
petition. The petition covers both the 2-wheel drive Carrera 2 and the 
4-wheel drive Carrera 4. The notice referred collectively to these 
vehicles as the ``1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2/4.'' No comments were 
received in response to the notice. Based on its review of the 
information submitted by the petitioner, NHTSA has determined to grant 
the petition.

Vehicle Eligibility Number for Subject Vehicles

    The importer of a vehicle admissible under any final determination 
must indicate on the form HS-7 accompanying entry the appropriate 
vehicle eligibility number indicating that the vehicle is eligible for 
entry. VSP 52 is the vehicle eligibility number assigned to vehicles 
admissible under this determination.

Final Determination

    Accordingly, on the basis of the foregoing, NHTSA hereby determines 
that 1992 Porsche 911 Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 passenger cars not 
originally manufactured to comply with all applicable Federal motor 
vehicle safety standards are substantially similar to 1992 Porsche 911 
Carrera 2 and Carrera 4 passenger cars originally manufactured for 
importation into and sale in the United States and certified under 
section 114 of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, and 
are capable of being readily modified to conform to all applicable 
Federal motor vehicle safety standards.

    Authority: 15 U.S.C. 1397(c)(3)(A)(i)(I) and (C)(ii); 49 CFR 
593.8; delegations of authority at 49 CFR 1.50 and 501.8.

    Issued on: June 30, 1994.
William S. Boehly,
Associate Administrator for Enforcement.
