Manufactured between 1965 and 1969, the Porsche 912 was very much the entry level Porsche sports car. Although, for some time, considered the poorer relation to the 911, the 912 is a serious sports car in its own right. With aerodynamic lines, low weight and an efficient engine, the 912 demonstrated good performance, nimble handling and economy, resulting in initial production cars outselling the 911. The 912 won Car and Driver's 1967 'Readers Choice' Poll for its class, a popular choice for motorsport teams and a rally prepared 912 won its class in the 1967 European Rally Championship.

This Porsche 912 is in impeccable order throughout following a recent nut and bolt restoration. This Porsche has benefitted from meticulous attention to detail during the recent works done and it certainly shows. Presenting immaculately in newly painted grey metallic with a contrasting newly trimmed interior, the level of work on this Porsche needs to be seen. The engine bay is immaculate as is the front loadspace. The shut lines are good and the chrome work has been replaced. We are informed that she runs as well as she looks. With rising values for Porsche 912's, this gem of a car is certainly a contender for one to have and to hold on to.
