The 912 is a nimble-handling compact performance four-seat vehicle, delivering 90 SAE horsepower at 5800 rpm. It is capable of up to 30 miles per US gallon fuel economy. This combination is possible because of a high-efficiency petrol engine, low weight, and low drag. A variant of the Type 911, one of the most famous and successful sports cars of all time, the Type 912 initially outsold the 911, boosting the manufacturer’s total production until success of the 911 was assured.
Built on the 911’s chassis and sharing its bodyshell, Porsche was able to offer the 912 for much less than a base-model 911 by using the four-cylinder engine from the 356 rather than the 911’s “flat” six-cylinder powerplant and by reducing the number of standard features. After production of the 356 model ceased in April 1965, in May 1965 Porsche began production and delivery of the 912. The proven reliability of the 356’s engine combined with the 911 bodywork and powertrain yielded improved weight distribution, handling, and range. A lower price made the 912 a very attractive buy.
