Description:

1976 Porsche 912 E Coupe 2-Door

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1976 Porsche 912e.


Revived for the 1976 model year only and only for the USA, the 912e replaced the retiring 914. The water cooled 924 would not debut until 1977 and Porsche needed and introductory model for the US. The 912e turned out to be one of the most fun Porsches to drive with well balanced power, fuel injection, great brakes and gorgeous looks. This is car number 000092, a very early car of the 2100 produced. It’s the one you want in the right colour and with the right pedigree, a Porsche factory Certificate of Authenticity. Note the Factory confirmation that this is a "matching numbers" car.



Ownership History

The family called and we pulled the car from the gentleman's garage where it had sat here in OC since his passing. He had owned the car for decades but no records could be found. She was placed in our care and stored in our warehouse for several years. We did the minor servicing required, replaced the tires and drove her a bit. We learned why these cars are so coveted: Driving this car is a pure joy. Nothing but you and the road.

Rarity

Some 2100 912e cars were produced and they were made solely for the US market. This limited run was set by Porsche as opposed to filling all the orders available. Many succumbed to rust, accidents, engine changes and the ravages of time. Relatively few 912e remain in the wild today. Our research shows very few original and unmodified cars are available.

Exterior

We think the Emerald Green Metallic paint is just gorgeous. There are some flaws noticeable upon close inspection. Our resident inspector Tomo notes the slight traces of minor paint repairs: a tiny bit of overlapped clear coat is visible inside the door frame. Please review the video and see the photos. Original chrome and stainless greenhouse accents. Right side rearview mirror. Factory supplied Fuchs wheels. Crested center caps.

Interior

Beautiful interior upholstery, carpet, dash, headliner and door panels and dash. Crested leather shift knob. 3 point front seat belts. Fold down rear seats. Excellent panel fit. JVC audio with 4 speakers. Removable faceplate and storage case.

Floors

Floors are original and California solid. See the photos

Boot/Trunk

Appears all original. Two California license plates, tags expired 2013. Enthusiast light repair manual. Hell hole is clean. No rust or damage. No spare or tools. Period Clifford alarm system is being removed. No remote.

Wheels, Tires

14” Fuchs alloy wheels with new 205/60/R14 tires. Porsche crested center caps.

Engine

Awesome running 2.0 flat four with Bosch Jet-tronic fuel injection. All of the smog equipment is present and operating. Magnaflow exhaust.

Transmission

The 5 speed manual transmission is working properly and feels great.

Braking

Four wheel disc brakes. New pads.

Service

Fresh service, turnkey and ready to go. Fresh oil and filters. We understand that the car was previously maintained by the famed Otto’s Porsche Service in Venice. Unfortunately, no records either exist or can be found. Otto and the former owner of this car both passed in 2013.

Trim

The trim is in good to excellent shape. The “smile” rubber strip above the front bumper is beginning to deform a bit. There’s a thin flat metal sheet inside the rubber that is there to keep the rubber semi rigid. As that metal decays, the rubber deforms. The OEM part is inexpensive and available. See pics and video.

Glass

The glass is in good to excellent condition. Correct original Sekurit German glass except for the windshield which is clear. OEM rear window defogger.

Odometer

The odometer shows 217,929 miles. Plus a few for shows and whatever other excuse we can come up with to drive this one! Hmmm....Monterey is next month. Call or write for exact mileage if it’s important.

DMV / Documentation

The title is clear. A current non- op certificate is on file so there will be no back fees. Two California license plates.A California smog certificate is provided for California residents. Very low cost Antique registration and insurance for most US States. A binder with pictures, detailed information, receipts and specs is included. Porsche Certificate of Authenticity included.

Comparables

There are very few comparable 76 Porsche 912e cars for sale at this time. Perhaps you can find a car that needs work, has been rebuilt or previously wrecked or hot rodded. Find a real car in excellent survivor condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few cars indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars, this Porsche 912e represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.

Inspection

Please come inspect this great Porsche before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are purely unintentional. We strive to provide a lot of pictures from every angle and do a video to offer even closer inspection. None of this is better than a personal inspection. Please keep in mind that this is a 41 year old used car. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking appliance your cousin Pat drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car. Please move on to the Prius section.
