Porsche introduced the 912 in 1965 as the successor to the 356. It had all the modernity of the 911 combined with the trusted mechanics of the outgoing 356. In 1966 it actually outsold the 911 worldwide, but the UK was slow to acknowledge the great handling and looks of the car while the US market couldn't get enough. This has become significant as the comparatively low numbers sold in the UK means that today we have to look to the US to satisfy prospective European owners of this 'cult classic'.
Offered here is a very original and ‘honest' Porsche 912 that was delivered new to the USA in 1967 and judging by the condition was probably a ‘dry state' car. It was imported into the UK in June 1999 and has had only three owners since. Purchased by the last owner in October 2003, the history file shows the sales invoice from Tower Porsche.
Finished now in Ivory White with black trim, the option remains to return it to its original colour of Bahama Yellow. It's an exercise that's made easier by the factory black finish to the engine bay and boot area.
This early 912 SWB represents a great opportunity to enjoy ‘as is' or embark on a worthwhile restoration as Porsche prices continue to rise with no signs of slowing. Simply a great 912 in its purest form and Karmann built in Osnabruck.
