1968 PORSCHE 912
Porsche introduced the 912 in 1965 as the successor to the 356. It had all the modernity of the 911 combined with the trusted mechanics of the outgoing 356. In 1966 it actually outsold the 911 worldwide, but the UK was slow to acknowledge the great handling and looks of the car while the US market couldn't get enough. This has become significant as the comparatively low numbers sold in the UK means that today we have to look to the US to satisfy prospective European owners of this 'cult classic'.
Offered here is a left-hand drive Porsche 912 finished in Polo Red with a black leather interior and supplied to its first owner in the USA in 1968. Thought to have been restored in the mid-90s, although it still looks restoration-fresh, this car formed part of a museum display for much of its time in the USA and presumably didn't go anywhere. Sadly, there is no history with the car, but it's a bit academic as a look in the engine bay suggests that everything is in good order. The car looks totally unadulterated with an absolute purity of profile. Serviced and UK registered with the DVLA, this 912 represents the perfect opportunity to own an affordable Porsche at today's guide price.
