The 912 is regarded by an increasing faction of Porsche enthusiasts as a very much worthwhile alternative to a more powerful 911. With its lighter 356-style mechanical components and inherently better weight distribution, the 912 is regarded by many as a more balanced driver's car than the 911.
Offered here a very desirable short wheelbase, soft-window Targa in Blue over original Beige leatherette upholstery on correct silver vented wheels and optioned with fog lights, electric fan, bumper horns and RF suppression.Today, the Porsche displays older paintwork over the factory Bahama Yellow, while the interior's upholstery, front/rear compartments and underside remain very original. Additionally, the Targa is complete with ALL books, supplements, tools and accessories - including: Maintenance Record Booklet, Driver's Manual, Targa Supplement, Emissions Annex, '68/'69 Distributors & Dealers reference, stamped Blaupunkt Warranty Card and User's Manual.
According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the motor and transmission are original to the car.
