Vehicle Overview

CALIFORNIA RUST FREE CAR

4 SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION

VERY RARE SUNROOF 

BEST COLOR COMBO


For power, Porsche utilized a slightly detuned version of the Type 616/36, air-cooled, 4-cylinder, boxer, pushrod
, engine from its bowing 356SC, which had a displacement of 1582cc, a compression ratio of  9.3:1, and produced 90 horsepower at 5,800rpm.  Upon adopting the new 911 into the 912, more than just the motor was carried over from the 356.  Most dramatically, as with the 356, the interior dashboards of the first 912s were painted the same color as the exterior of the car, thus creating what is now referred to as a "painted dash" 912.  (In actuality, the dashboards of all early 9-series Porsches were painted the same color as the exterior, but as a cost-cutting measure, the first 912s were then not given the additional layer of anti-glare matte black paint and strip of teak wood trim that came standard on the 911.)  Other 356 touches that could be found on early 912s included a fluted shift knob, a small 356-style fuel door pull, and 356-style seats with perforated backs.  Other more subtle features unique to the earliest 9-series Porsches include a VIN plate mounted along the edge of the gas tank vs. by the front trunk latch assembly, non-adjustable front shock placement, a side mounted windshield fluid reservoir and window frames that tapered outward where they meet the doors.  In the engine bay, there were large "dueling elephant" style Knetsch canister air filters, (whose primary design purpose may have been to fill the empty space in an engine bay originally intended to house a much larger power plant).


For 1968, 912 door panels were a unique 1-year only design, and door frames in were now aluminum instead of chrome plated brass. For added stability, wheel width was increased from 4.5" to 5'.  For more reliable braking, a dual circuit master cylinder was introduced.  A larger 420-watt generator charged the battery faster.   As of January 1968, the soft-window Targa becomes designated as 'Version I' only available with a rear shelf and compartments, rather than the occasional +2 rear seats.  Also sold as an extra-cost option was the hard-window Targa 'Version II' which featured a fixed glass rear window and rear seats.
