Estimate:
€40,000 - €50,000


Delivered new to Portugal
Retains its original engine
Equipped with the desirable five-speed manual gearbox

Built in the summer of 1966, this Porsche 912 was originally earmarked for the Portuguese market and delivered new to its first owner in Lisbon. It was finished in black paint over a brown leather interior. Furthermore, the car was outfitted with the rare and desirable five-speed manual gearbox, a Blaupunkt Frankfurt radio with loudspeaker and antenna, and a sunroof, amongst other options. Today the car is finished in black paint with a beige interior and still retains its original engine. The odometer shows 2,660 km, presumably since the completion of the car’s most recent restoration.

Offered by Porsche as their entry-level alternative to the 911, although the 912 was fitted with the 356’s 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine, its reduced weight still made the car a thrill to drive. With just over 30,000 examples produced between 1965 and 1968, it is a much rarer car when compared to the 911 and is a must-have for any Porsche enthusiast.



Entregue novo em Portugal

Mantém o motor original

Equipado com a desejada caixa manual de cinco velocidades

Construído no verão de 1966, este Porsche 912 foi, de início, destinado ao mercado português e entregue novo ao seu primeiro proprietário em Lisboa. Estava pintado em preto com interior em pele castanha. Além disso, tinha a rara e desejada caixa manual de cinco velocidades, um rádio Blaupunkt Frankfurt, com altifalante e antena e um teto de abrir, entre outras opções. Hoje mantém o preto no exterior, com interior em bege, conservando ainda o seu motor original. O conta-quilómetros exibe 2660 km, supostamente os percorridos desde a conclusão do seu restauro mais recente.

No catálogo da Porsche aparecia como a alternativa mais acessível ao 911, mas o 912, apesar de ter o motor de quatro cilindros de 1,6 litros do 356, continuava a ser emocionante de conduzir, em parte graças ao seu peso mais baixo. Com apenas 30.000 exemplares produzidos entre 1965 e 1968, é muito mais raro quando comparado com o 911, sendo um objeto de desejo para qualquer entusiasta da Porsche.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
