Today, all but the most diehard Porsche enthusiasts have forgotten that the Butzi Porsche-styled 901 (aka, 911) had a four-cylinder twin for the first four years of production. Fearing that they had gone too far up market, Porsche hastily introduced the 912 in 1966 to bridge the gap between the prices of the departed 356 ($4,100) and the new 911 ($6,490). Using a pushrod four-cylinder that was actually a slightly detuned variant of the 356SC motor the 912's performance was actually slightly better than the 356 because of the car's superior aerodynamics. Upon its introduction it sold for $4,700.
Outside of the engine compartment, only badging and interior fitments distinguished the 912 from the 911, with true base cars having a three-dial dash as opposed to the 911s five-dial unit. A four-speed all-synchromesh transmission was standard with a five-speed optional. Most of the other usual 911 options were available including special order paints, a sunroof, and the unique soft rear window Targa top. In 1969, like the 911, the 912 rode on a stretched wheelbase, with flared fenders and redesigned gauges. That model year proved the last year for the 912 initial run, as the Volkswagen-produced 914 was set to assume the entry-level role for Porsche in 1970. In 1976, however, with the demise of the 914, Porsche resuscitated the 912 (now called the 912E) for one year only. The car utilized the 2.0 liter VW Type IV motor that had previously seen service in the 914.
GR Auto Gallery is excited to present to you this 1976 Porsche 912E draped in it's factory color of Sienna Metallic, this 912E is probably one of the most highly documented Porsche's to run through the gallery.
With records dating back to the mid 80's this 912 has had some very meticulous owners. The 4 inch think binder has receipts totaling over $35,720. Documentation includes a complete motor rebuild right down to the crank about 35,000 miles ago, complete glass out re-spray, all new interior and over 30 years of routine maintenance records. Recently this 912 resided in Mississippi the last 3 years with the owner only logging 2,690 miles on her. Prior to that the Porsche was in California and routinely smogged with the last report showing it passed with flying colors 2,800 miles ago. With a vintage style modern 134 A/C system this 912 is ready for the next PCA tour.
This 912E is arguably one of the most documented 912E's on the market today. With the rise in the Porsche market as of late this is a sure fire investment.
