The Porsche 912 was introduced alongside the original 911 sports car in 1965 and was offered as an entry-level model featuring the same bodywork underpinned by a lightweight and easy-to-maintain 1,600cc engine. This 1968 example is a Porsche 912 Coupe that was reportedly acquired by the seller from its original owner in California. Said to benefit from a rebuilt engine and transmission, this 912 is now being offered for auction out of New York,
This 912 Coupe was previously refinished in the current red paint color and features chrome brightwork for the headlight rings, window surrounds, door handles, horn grilles, and bumper overriders. Other equipment includes a sunroof, polished aluminum rocker panel moldings, a fender-mounted antenna, a chrome driver’s side mirror, silver rear badging, pop-out rear quarter windows, and slotted 15” wheels with chrome hubcaps. Some imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery along with the driver’s door jamb tag which shows the car’s original color to have been Burgundy Red (6808).
The interior features black leatherette upholstery with basketweave pattern inserts on the seats and door panels. Accessories include a leather-wrapped four-spoke steering wheel, a brushed aluminum dashboard trim strip, manual window cranks, a Porsche-crested gear knob, folding rear seatbacks, front seat headrests, Porsche-logo floor mats, a heater, a locking glovebox, a quartz clock, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette stereo paired with aftermarket speakers. Some tears are shown on the passenger seat and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.
An air-cooled 1,600cc flat-four engine delivers up to 90 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox. The seller indicates the engine and transmission were previously rebuilt and the car remains in good mechanical order with no outstanding maintenance items.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, some documentation, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “One owner, rust-free California car purchased from the original owner, always garage kept, all matching rebuilt motor and transmission, excellent condition, runs, drives and shifts great, just serviced before sale, comes with the original toolkit and spare.”
