What does the code on the baseplate mean?

In 2008 Mattel introduced a system of coding to be printed on each vehicle, the code consists of a single letter followed by 2 numbers (eg: B07).
Most likely used for tracking purposes the codes are a representation of the week of production.

The years are represented by the letter starting at A for 2008; ie:

2008 = A
2009 = B
2010 = C
2011 = D
2012 = E
2013 = F
2014 = G
2015 = H
2016 = I
2017 = J
2018 = K

The numbers simply reflect the week of production thus code F03 means that vehicle was produced during week 3 of 2013
