1966 PORSCHE 912 – £55,950
What can you say about short wheelbase 1960s Porsches? They are legendary cars and will only become more iconic and valuable as time goes on. This 912 has lived in the west coast of USA all of its life and has, therefore, survived the ravages of rust that affects European versions.
We sourced her along with others in 2014 in the USA and sold her to a very discerning owner who has maintained her to the highest standards.
Although the 912 does not have a 6 cylinder engine it still has the legendary engine well known from the previous 356 and is a better balanced driving car in many ways to an early 911. This stunning Irish green example was one of the last Porsche built Swb before changing to the long wheelbase model which was Karman built.
Although it has never been stripped down for full restoration this car has received milder improvements. This means that the body panels are fitting as Stuttgart intended rather than the uneven panel fit that you can get from most early Porsche restorations. It is notoriously difficult to replicate factory standards and build quality.
The recent work carried out includes carb refurb, new Blockley tyres, brake discs, callipers, Elec ignition etc This is not the average imported 912 but one of the best available anywhere and becoming very difficult to find at well under half the price of the equivalent 911 with the only difference being 2 cylinders more.
On the road you cannot help but enjoy the lively and alive nature of the early Porsches, the 912 is so well balanced. The 912 is definitely the bargain of the early Porsches and very likely to catch up the 911, whose investment record over the past few years speaks for itself.
