THE PORSCHE 912

Put into production in July 1964, the 911 presaged the end of 356-production. It was July 1965 before the 911 made it to the US, and customers immediately noticed the differences from its predecessor. In addition to being more modern and more powerful, it was also more expensive: nearly $2,000 more than the comparable 356 model. In Europe, too, this was a problem. Thus, by April 1965 a "transitional model" entered production. Essentially a 911 with a 356-type flat four, the new car, designated "912," was not only less expensive, selling at near-356 prices, but enjoyed more even weight distribution and better economy. The combination of the four-cylinder engine and the slipperier 911 design was capable of achieving 30 mpg. More than 30,000 were eventually built.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

A desirable five-speed model, this 912 was purchased in Asheville, North Carolina by a local doctor who enjoyed the car in limited use before passing it on to M.F. Vaughn on November 21, 1973 with 22,988 miles on the odometer. It was then sold to William Silver who maintained the car in his collection until selling it to Wesley Edward Martin in November 2001. The vehicle continued its succession of owners from the Tar Heel state when it entered the collection of legendary Midget racer Robert Hall, who treated the car to a sympathetic restoration from 2012 to 2013. Mechanical work was performed by noted marque expert John Forbes of Black Forest Racing in Denver, North Carolina, and included an engine rebuild and replacement of the hydraulic system. The cars paintwork and trim was refurbished by a local shop.

Currently displaying a total of 54,057 miles on the odometer, the car retains the crisp handling and exciting driving experience that it had when new. Finished in the original Polo Red color, this 912 has the rare, optional 5-gauge instrument cluster and its original Blaupunkt AM/FM/SW radio in the dash. Properly trimmed in period kit, this 912 should reward the next owner with a wonderful driving experience.
