Until 1965, thanks to a very wide price range, the Porsche 356 attracted a large number of buyers with its numerous available engines and types of bodywork. With the arrival of the 911, many enthusiasts could no longer afford a Porsche. To avoid losing a number of customers, a decision was quickly made to develop a more accessible 911 that would be less expensive to maintain, by dipping into the bank of existing parts. The innovative line of the 911 was thus retained, whilst using the tried and tested, reliable engine of the former 356. A car was created that had a modern appearance and was pleasant to drive, reliable and considerably less expensive than the 911. Not exceeding a tonne with its 1,582 cm3, 90 hp engine, this is now a real alternative, under the current conditions of use, to the classic 911s, for which prices have rocketed.

The spruce 912 that we are presenting was produced on the assembly lines of Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen in 1967 and, like many sports cars at that time, was sold new in California. As its bodywork plate attests, it is painted in its original ivory colour, code 6604, Hell Elfenbein, and its black interior has recently been restored. It is equipped with five instruments and a 5-speed gearbox with the number 237610.
Having spent most of its life in California, the car was purchased by a British enthusiast in the early 2000s, then by the previous owner, a Parisian Porsche collector. Belonging to a Ferrari collector since February 2011, much work has been carried out on the car recently and we advise you to look at the file of invoices that comes with the car. It is equipped with a period Clarion radio and provides the perfect way either to drive to the Nürburgring or simply to meander around Paris.
