Description

Put into production in July 1964, the 911 presaged the end of 356-production. It was July 1965 before the 911 made it to the US, and customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor. In addition to being more modern and more powerful, it was also more expensive: nearly $2,000 more than the comparable 356 model. In Europe, too, this was a problem. Thus, by April 1965 a “transitional model” entered production. Essentially a 911 with a 356-type flat four, the new car, designated “912,” was not only less expensive, selling at near-356 prices, but enjoyed more even weight distribution and better economy. The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the slipperier 911 design was capable of achieving 30 mpg.

Finished in the appealing colour combination of Golf blue with black interior, this wonderful example still retains its original 1.6L Flat-4 engine (#746825) producing 90 hp through a 5-speed manual transmission. This ’67 912 also features the external temperature gauge in Fahrenheit, 5-gauge dash, and wooden steering wheel.

Described to run and drive well, the car presents nicely with special mention to its interior. With vintage Porsche values on the sharp rise, this 1967 car makes a great entry point into the 912 market
