Offered exclusively in the United States for one year only and with less than 2,100 examples produced in total, the Porsche 912E was created to replace the outgoing 914 as Porsche’s entry-level sports car. It shared its chassis with the premium 911 model and was powered by a 2.0-liter flat-four engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection. This example is said to have been refinished in its reported factory-specified shade of Oak Green Metallic over tan and features Fuchs alloy wheels and a 5-speed manual transaxle. The car is said to have been originally sold in Michigan before making its way to Long Beach, California where it is said to have remained for most of its life. Having undergone a major service in 2014, this 912E is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California while showing approximately 146k miles on the odometer.
This 912E is said to have been refinished in its reported factory-specified shade of Oak Green Metallic with polished door handles, window moldings, and a matching driver's side mirror. The car features rectangular factory front fog lights, a center tail panel reflector with “PORSCHE” lettering, and a date-stamped factory spare tire. This coupe rides on factory Fuchs alloy wheels that come wrapped in Nitto NT 450 tires. A few minor cosmetic imperfections are noted. A collection of detailed images is provided in the gallery.
The tan leatherette interior is said to have been refreshed with factory Porsche-branded floor mats, new carpeting, new window cranks, and attention to the driver's seat. The seller notes the dashboard is free of cracks the AM/FM Alpine radio operates as expected, and the factory-optioned air conditioning system is currently inoperable.
The 912E is powered by an air-cooled Porsche-designed VW 2.0-liter flat-four engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection and an output of up to 86 HP and 98 lb.-ft of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox and stopping power is handled by disc brakes at each corner. The seller states that this 912 underwent a major $9k+ service in 2014. Another service was completed in September of 2023 and the car received a new fuel sender unit.
Included in the sale are owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. This 912E is said to be rust-free with a straight body, garage-stored, and serviced regularly. A very nice example!!!"
