1968 Porsche 912 Coupe Golden Green

1968 PORSCHE 912

Color# 62165 Golden Green


SOLD



The Porsche 912 bridges the gap between the 356 and the 911 by combining the body of the 911 but utilizing the proven reliable 4 cylinder 102hp Porsche 356SC power plant. While the 912 has 30 less horsepower than its 6cyl counterpart they share the same chassis, suspension, 4 wheel disk brakes, manual transmission, and build quality. When it comes to the 900 series cars many collectors are prone to look only for the 6cyl versions, however, one should keep in mind that ALL Porsche cars had 4 cylinder engines up until the 911 was introduced in 1964. 

This particular example is one of the most unique and special Porsche cars you could ever find. This 912 was a special order from Carlsen Porsche of San Francisco California, it was ordered in the rarest color offered by Porsche in the 1960s “Golden Green”. Only a small handful of cars were built with this special order color, a color that evokes emotion in the onlookers and sets the car apart from all other examples.
