It is not very often that a car of this condition and caliber is up for sale on eBay. Take a look around eBay and other advertising sources - you will see that most 912 cars for sale are just worn out non-original drivers or plain old junk. It does not take an expert to see that this car is in the top tier of 912s. It does however take an expert to properly restore one of these cars the exacting original standards. This car has just received a total reworking over the last year. The owner of the car has regretfully decided to sell the car to raise capital for an investment he is involved in. What you are looking at is a car that has just been professionally restored but has not been driven. This is not an amateur restoration that was done a few years ago with many miles since.  This is a quality original San Diego California car that has had over $30,000 of recent smart experienced work put into it.

 

The 911 and 912 were the exact same car from 1964-1968 aside from their engines. The first 911 6 cyl cars had terrible sales numbers; the cars were now $2,000 higher than their predecessors at around $6500. Porsche decided to put the highest evolution of their tried and true 356 line (the 356SC engine) into the new 901 body, thus terming the car the 902. The early short wheel base 901 and 902 (911 and 912) cars had some of the best build quality of any car ever made.  These cars are made of real steel & metal chrome plated parts that were meant to last. The short wheel base cars were from a time of artisan car builders who put every bit of skill, craftsmanship and style into their work. This is a time before bean counters and massive economies of scale. These cars are special and will be for many years to come. Just look at the grille work, gauges, fit and finish that rivals any other car ever built. These cars are solid well built timeless designs that can still hold their own today. This 1967 912 handles the road better than most any American or Japanese car built today, it can cruise the freeway at 80mph and still get up to 28mpg to this very day! Creature comforts such as A/C and quiet cabins are best left up to modern Euro cars whereas the look and feel of a vintage short wheelbase Porsche will not only wow every onlooker but wow the driver every time. This car is hot! These cars are very lightweight and agile, still a competitive sports car in the 21st century.
