You'd probably get it from Brazil, why don't you ask Taurus USA if they can import one for you.
They are around most are over priced. The one I have been watching is imported by Taurus Miami so it should be covered by warranty if needed. I have seen several other imports on gun broker lately but they look rough and most were missing the mags.

Gentleman who I purchased my PT-940 from told me he had the full PT-900 series at one time. He still has a PT938 and a PT-58 which is more the .380 version of the PT-92 style pistol. Does anyone here have any experiance with the PT-58 .380 pistol. From what I can tell they are getting very difficult to locate. The one he has is unfired, NIB, Stainless and asking $350 for it. He is also offering the PT-938 for $300. I know that among the CCW crowd the .380 is often said to be too light of a load for PP. But, to be honest CCW is not the reason I would be buying it....more as a specality item.
Please feel free to lay any feedback you care to share.

I own a Taurus PT58 which is definitely a rare find. My experience is it's a very reliable weapon and I've never had a single issue with it. I carry it as a backup weapon. I had one several years ago and let it get away and I've spent nearly 20 yrs searching for another one which I finally found. All in I paid just over $500.00 and would do it again in a heartbeat. I've never been a fan of the stainless steel one however It's definitely not too light for PP (especially with hollow points). I feel just as confident carrying it as I do my SR9 (which is my primary carry) . It will soon become a collectors item so if you have an opportunity to get one at that price (even if it's stainless steel), I would definitely do it. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how rare a PT 938C is but it does run 380 ACP and is made by Taurus. Here is a pic

At least here in Brazil, PT-938 is one of more common pistols, due the previous caliber restrictions. 380 ACP and .38 Special were the maximum allowed for civilian use up to 2019.

PT-938 is still the standard handgun for many Municipal Guards and private security firms, specially for bodyguard work.
