1969 Porsche 912


Drive Train

1.6L 4-cylinder

4-speed manual





108,787 miles


The 1969 Porsche 912 shares the same body lines as the iconic 911.  A spiritual successor to the iconic 356, the 912 retains its predecessor's classic silhouette while introducing modern engineering innovations. Its air-cooled, 1.6-liter flat-four engine delivers a balance of power and efficiency. With its nimble handling and precise steering, the 912 offers an exhilarating driving experience that captures the essence of pure, unadulterated motoring. 


The current owner acquired this car from its original owner in 1972.  It was an original San Francisco Bay Area car.  In 1975 they changed to Weber carbs, added the fuch wheels and repainted the car in German Racing Silver.  In 1989 the engine was disassembled for a rebuild.  In 1990 the body had rust removal work done.  From 1991 to 2018 the car remained disassembled.  A two year build to finish the restoration was completed in 2019 and it has covered approximately 1000 miles since then.
