When Porsche first built the 912, it was designed to be an entry-level model. However, after 50 years, the 912 has matured into a classic that is anything but entry level. This 1967 912 5-Speed Soft Window Targa is unrestored, unmolested, and in pristine condition, with only minor re-spray work in the nose preventing it from earning the “all original” title.
Over the course of its 76,436 miles, this 912 has been meticulously serviced. It has had 5 owners, of which there are full records, along with its original bill of sale. It also has its original books, tools, and covers. Factory option Fuchs wheels adorn the 912’s timeless lines. The paint does have a few small flaws, and there is pitting on the rear bumper near the wheel arches. But, considering most of the body still wears its coat from 1967, it is in incredible shape.
The interior is equally matched to the gorgeous exterior. The dash, seats, door panels, and carpet are all in excellent condition. The car’s road manners are everything you’d expect of a high-caliber classic Porsche: the chassis is nimble, the flat-four sings, and the transmission shifts with ease. Because of its smaller, lighter 4-cylinder engine, the 912 is better balanced than the 911, and actually outsold its big brother during production. This piece of Porsche history has been cherished since it left the factory in Stuttgart, making for a truly remarkable and exquisitely preserved 912.
