1969 Porsche 9121969 Porsche 912 - Preservation Car with Great Historyand One of the Finest Examples In Existence
This is the final year of the 912 and the only year with long wheel base and the optional 5 speed transmission. These cars visually look the same as a 911 except forbadging and with the 4 cylinder engine they are well balanced and a joy to drive in modern traffic. I'm a serious Porsche collector and I fell in love with this car when I saw it in Carmel, CA. during Pebble Beach week 2012.
This 912 has a great story that was documented in Excellence Magazine in June 2009 titled " 912 20,000 Mile Time Capsule In Your Backyard". The original ownerdied and left the car to his 13 year old son and the car remained in storage in Arizona until 2008. ( I can email the article ). Once the car came out of storage it went toPatrick Motorsports in Phoenix, AZ . $20,000 was spent on a " Preservation Awakening" to preserve the original paint and interior and to address mechanical issues.It's an amazing car that is well documented and a template car for future restorers. These cars were cheaper than 911's and most of them were used up.
I only know of one other comparable 912 and it sold earlier this year for $110K. The reserve on this car is reasonable and it'll make a great addition to any serious Porsche collection.
This 912 just had a complete service and detail at Paul Russell and Company and it's ready to be enjoyed by the next owner. Please email any questions and I'll answer them promptly.
