HISTORY OF THE PORSCHE 912:
After years of building its commercial and racing success around the 356 models, Porsche introduced the larger, more powerful, two-liter Porsche 911 model in 1965.
Maintaining the company's success with rear-engine positioning, the all-new design provided an aerodynamic body over a revised chassis that housed a sophisticated suspension system, a more powerful flat-six engine, and a five-speed transmission. The combination was extremely powerful, making the new 911 faster and more stable at high speed than the 356 model.
Feeling excluded, many Porsche fans yearned for a more affordable alternative to the 911. Buyers did not have long to wait, as in 1966 Porsche introduced the affordable 912 model with virtually the same horizontally opposed four-cylinder engine that was used in the 356 Super 90. Despite a weight penalty of 220 pounds versus the lighter 356 Super 90, the Porsche 912 achieved the identical top speed of 115 mph.
Production ran from 1965 through 1969, and 912 Porsches of quality have become increasingly collectible. Today, excellent examples are few and far between, as they proved popular with people who never anticipated their future value. Throughout production, only 8%, or about 2,562 cars, were equipped with a Targa top. Nearly extinct, there are only about 60 known examples.
