The Porsche 912 was produced from 1965 to 1969 and was designed to be the economy variant of the more famous Porsche 911.
It was put into production as if to anticipate the market release of the legendary and captivating Volkswagen-Porsche 914.
The success of this car was not the worst, thanks to its aesthetics, similar to that of the older 6-cylinder sister and the very advantageous list price.
The Porsche 912 differed from its “sister” 911 for the engine, that is the 4-cylinder air-cooled boxer of 1584 cm³ with 90 HP of the last Porsche 356 SC and for the interiors that were very simplified. It kept the coupé bodywork (and since 1966 also the plate) and the rest of the mechanics.
Performance was modest, but low consumption compensated.
Its production ceased at the end of 1969 to make way for the 914, however in 1976 a small series of 912 E with 2-liter 4-cylinder boxer engine (of Volkswagen origin) with 86 HP injection was produced for the North American market.
