Came across this option code available for a euro coupe; ever seen it? Heard of it?

972 - criminal police car/traffic camera car/executive limousine with radiophone, make Telefunken
972 - police-traffic-camera-operation-control-vehicle with telephone (from 01.02.1970 up to 31.08.1978)
972 - criminal police car version (from 01.09.1978 up to 30.09.1996)

Probably a bad translation - the German police also used Porshes for high speed interceptors, but had no room in the back of their sparse turbo-charged 2 seaters for a perpetrator after a high speed chase had come to a close (assuming an ambulance wasn't required instead). A "criminal transport capable police car" would be the more apt description, with screened off rear compartment, hard plastic seats and no interior door handles. I've seen one or two overseas when visiting some relatives in Kiel, by then, they were already novelties.

Cheers,
