The Cabriolet Registry is the largest collection of Cabriolet/Rabbit Convertible data outside of the Volkswagen/Karmann factory archives. It is an ongoing database with the goal of providing a complete listing of Cabriolet chassis numbers that are still in existence, or are known to no longer be living.  This database also includes a breakdown of models, colors, and transmission types (manuals are by far the most common!).  Take a look to see if your (or one you see on the street, in a junkyard, etc.) Cabriolet/Rabbit Convertible is listed; if not, please submit its details!

Cabriolet Registry Submission Form

* Required information:


For those concerned about security, be assured that without the entire 17-digit (or 10-digit for '79/'80) VIN, no one can look up information about your specific car, or about you personally. Photos submitted with visible license plates: those plates will be blocked/blurred out. Additionally, cities will not be posted, even if you submit them.  Registry submissions are entered manually once a month, or as time allows.

* Listed production numbers are unverified at this time, but are close to the actual numbers, based on the VIN-splits on record.  Karmann's published production number of total Cabriolets built is 388,522.


** Estimation based on a 6% annual loss of above-listed production numbers up to the year 2011.  The total remaining is currently an estimated 23-33% of total produced.  The 6% is an average based on published European registration figures over the past 20 years.
