Porsche 912 Images, Technical Specifications Cars & Parts For Sale

Porsche was founded in 1931 by Ferdinand Porsche, an Austro-Hungarian engineer born in Maffersdorf, Austria-Hungary (today Vratislavice, Czech Republic). Porsche are also known as the designers of the first Volkswagen, but Béla Barényi is also credited with having conceived the basic design five years earlier.

In 1964, after some success in motor-racing, namely with the Porsche 550 Spyder, the company launched the Porsche 911 (its most famous product) another air-cooled, rear-engined sports car, this time with a 6-cylinder "boxer" engine. The team to lay out the body shell design was led by Ferry Porsche's eldest son, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche (F. A.). The design phase for the 911 caused internal problems with Erwin Komenda who led the body design department until then. F. A. Porsche complained Komenda made changes to the design not being approved by him. Company leader Ferry Porsche took his son's drawings to neighboring body shell manufacturer Reuter bringing the design to the 1963 state. Reuter's workshop was later acquired by Porsche (so-called Werk II). Afterward Reuter became a seat manufacturer, today known as Keiper-Recaro.

Quick Overview and What To Look For

A 912 looks very similar to the early 911 but fortunately they are much cheaper so you should be able to afford to buy a good one. The engine is not as good as the 911's flat six but the 1600cc flat four but can still reach nearly 120 MPH. These early Porsches were not well rust proofed so rust is the major area to look for. Most good 912's have been imported from warmer and no salted roads but this usually means that you will have left hand drive. If you do buy a rusty one panels are available but they are expensive and buying other spares should not cause to many problems.
