Porsche 912 background information
The Porsche 912 is a sports car that Porsche built from 1965 to 1969 as an entry-level model. The Porsche 912 E appeared as a new edition in 1976, but it was only intended for the US market.
The last Porsche 356 Coupés cost between 14,950 (75 hp, 175 km/h) and 23,700 DM (130 hp, 200 km/h), the Porsche 911 (six cylinders, 130 hp, 210 km/h) 21,900 DM. Between September 1964 and March 1965 911 and 356 were built in parallel. From April 1965, the Porsche 912 replaced the weaker 1.6-litre 356. This car had a modified four-cylinder engine from the Porsche 356 SC in the rear, which delivered 66 kW (90 hp). The performance of the engine was slightly lower in the 912, in return the elasticity of the engine was significantly improved, the maximum torque was now already at 3500 rpm. An additional improvement was the optional five-speed gearbox (extra charge 340.00 DM). Large-volume intake silencers reduced engine noise.
The chassis of the 912 hardly differed from that of the 911. Nevertheless, the handling was more forgiving and the tendency to oversteer was less than that of the first 911 because the car with the four-cylinder engine was less rear-heavy.
Last but not least, the 912 was intended to keep customers at Porsche for whom the 911 was too expensive. The Porsche 912 cost DM 16,250 when it was launched and was therefore DM 5,650 cheaper than the 911. The fuel consumption was also a lot lower than that of the Porsche 911 at 10 to 12 liters per 100 kilometers. Porsche offered the 912 for a total of four years.
It was equipped more simply than the 911, but received many minor and major improvements from 1965 to 1969. From the start, like the 911, it had a steering column that was bent in two places, a dashboard that was padded at the top and bottom, and a windscreen made of laminated glass for passive safety. Up until the 1967 model, there were three instruments: station wagon, speedometer, rev counter and, as an extra, a clock and outside thermometer – in other words, different instrumentation than on the 911 – all in green. With the two gauges available at extra cost, the dashboards were indistinguishable at first glance.
