The first 912s were made in the spring of 1965, alongside the last of the 356s. Originally the 912 was only offered to the European market, thus early examples are particularly rare today. Porsche introduced the 912 to the U.S. market at the New York Auto Show in September of 1965, but the model did not become widely available until early 1966. Through 1967 the 912 outsold the 911 by a margin of 2-to-1.
Today, Bring A Trailer is currently auctioning a 1966 Porsche 912 Coupe that came out of the factory on September 3, 1965. It undergo a multi-year refurbishment that was recently completed this year.
The car is finished in Aga Blue over beige leatherette upholstery, and power comes from a 1.6-liter flat-four paired with a five-speed manual transaxle. Among the most notable features include an electric sunroof, a driver-side mirror, 15″ steel wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio.
This elegant 912 will include a copy of the Kardex, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, refurbishment records, and a clean Ohio title. Don’t miss your chance to own a fine example of one of Porsche’s most iconic models.
