The Porsche 912 was introduced as a successor to the iconic 356 model in 1965. Designed as an entry-level sports car, the 912 was intended to bridge the gap between the more affordable Volkswagen Beetle and the high-performance Porsche 911 while helping to drive sales to an ever-expanding market. The introduction of the 912 offered Porsche enthusiasts a more accessible option without compromising on the brand’s reputation for engineering excellence and driving enjoyment. With its easily identifiable styling and refined handling, the 912 quickly gained popularity among enthusiasts around the world.
Mechanically, the Porsche 912 shared many components with its more powerful sibling, the 911. It was equipped with a 1.6-liter, flat-four engine, which provided a respectable amount of power and a smooth driving experience. The engine was air-cooled and placed in the rear, just like in the 911, giving the car excellent weight distribution and handling characteristics. The 912 featured a five-speed manual transmission, allowing drivers to enjoy the car’s performance potential fully. The combination of the lightweight chassis, responsive steering, and well-tuned suspension made the Porsche 912 a joy to drive, delivering a thrilling and engaging driving experience.
Originally intended to bridge a pricing gap and appeal to a wider market, the 912 was extremely successful in this realm. Throughout 1967 the 912 outsold its more powerful 911 sibling by a factor of almost 2 to 1. In terms of production numbers, Porsche manufactured the 912 from 1965 to 1969, with some later versions showing up in the model line in the 70s. During this four-year period, approximately 30,000 units were produced, making it a relatively rare vehicle compared to the higher-volume models of its time.
The relatively limited production numbers, combined with the car’s unique position in Porsche’s history, have contributed to its collectability over the years. Today, it still serves the same niche it did when new, a more affordable entry point into air-cooled Porsche ownership. The pricing of these 4-cylinder 911 look-a-likes may not currently reflect what they did historically, but the pricing of these are tied very closely to the air-cooled early 911 market, which has seen meteoric rises over the past 10 years. The 912 still remains a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding car to drive, and combined with its iconic looks, it is sure to remain a staple in the world of collectible classic Porsches.
The example on offer here, is a 1967 Porsche 912. It currently wears a Sand Beige exterior over a Black interior, the same combination that it left the factory with. Currently, the odometer shows 48,215 miles. However, we are unable to confirm if these are true original miles or not. This 912 is offered on consignment with us from a prominent and avid Porsche collector. As the car sits today, it is a good driver quality example that features a solid body, good paint, and decent mechanicals. It could easily be enjoyed as is or have a few items attended to that would truly bring it to the next level. When the car arrived at our facility, we sent it out to CR Cars, where it had the front brake lines replaced, as well as the left outer tie rod. In addition, the fuel filter was replaced as well as some of the fuel lines in the engine bay. Currently, the car runs and drives decently. There are a few items that could be attended to, such as a high idle as well as some grinding when going into second gear unless shifting extremely slow. However, given its solid body and cosmetics, it serves as a perfect jumping-off point should someone want to take it to the next level.
It should be noted that this 912 does feature a blank stamping on the case, meaning that it is not the original engine to the car but is the correct type engine. This certainly does not affect the drivability and the fun factor of this car and means that it is one less thing to worry about mechanically moving forward.
Overall, this 912 presents very nicely, finished in a perfectly 60’s colorway. Its mechanicals are solid enough that it could be driven and enjoyed as is or, with a little bit of extra attention, could truly be brought to the next level and made to be a fantastic driver.
