We have a great 1968 Porsche 912 short wheelbase. Originally supplied to a client in America, it came over to the Netherlands in 1997. The car has already been the subject of a full restoration. The bodywork is therefore in great shape. The panelwork is nice and thin with correct alignment. All of the brightwork is in very good condition. The Polo Red paintwork was expertly applied and is still in very good order. The interior has matching carpets and sports seats that benefit from having headrests.
The door cards were completely replaced at the time. Furthermore the interior sports a stopwatch and trip meter in order to participate in rallies and puzzle trips. A good additional advantage of having sports seats is the fact they not only keep one firmly seated but are very much comfortable on longer trips than the standard issues. For the rest, the dashboard looks great and all gauges and controls work as they should.
Mechanically things have also been very well attended to. The 1.6 4-cylinder boxer engine runs really well and thanks to the two fitted free-flowing air filters sounds fantastic. The engine is attached to the optional 5-speed gearbox. The gear shift is precise and the fifth gear is great for long-distance travel. The Porsche 912’s road-holding is tremendous due to the short wheelbase and lower weight compared to a contemporary 911 and to be honest, makes for a better ride than the 911.
As expected all window rubbers and suspension rubbers were replaced during the restoration. The value of 912’s has been steadily rising for some time now. Who wouldn’t agree with the statement that it is many times more enjoyable to drive a 912 than seeing the value of your money diminish every month due to inflation? In summary, this is a lovely Porsche 912 with its desirable short wheelbase and in fantastic condition together with a number of good upgrades. All you now need to do is choose your favourite road and enjoy the experience only a short wheelbase Porsche 912 can offer you!
