Lot 204 - 1969 Porsche 912
|Sold - £43,680
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 superb left hand drive example of this highly sought after model is presented in the rare evocative colour of Bahama Yellow with black interior. Its nostalgic sounding 1800cc four-cylinder engine is mated to a five-speed ‘dog leg’ gearbox. The vendor has just spent circa £2,000 on the car and it comes with a good history file including photographic proof of its restoration. This Porsche is in absolutely stunning condition with the vendor scoring it ten out of ten in terms of quality all round! This is certainly a Porsche for the collector or connoisseur without doubt.
