Originally delivered to the first owner, Barbara Foster, by Freeway Volkswagen, Inc. in Seattle, Washington on April 20th, 1966. Under Mrs. Foster's ownership, from 1966-2011, the 912 was primarily serviced by Aker's Porsche repair in Seattle, Washington and by several other surrounding shops in the Seattle area. In 2012, Mr. Speare took ownership of the 912 and enjoyed the vehicle for a year before selling the vehicle to the 3rd owner. Records indicate that Mr. Krone took possession of the vehicle in late 2013 and had the 912 relocated to his residence in the San Francisco area. In 2014, Mr. Krone, had Autobahn Interior's reupholster the 912 with: black German square weave carpets, new floor insulation, trunk carpet set, and re-built the front seats. Over the next two years, Mr. Krone also had upgrades done with, The Stable Porsche repair in San Francisco, California, which included: rebuilt distributor, new master cylinder, rebuilt starter, new fan belt, new fuel filter, and hoses, rebuilt Solex carburetors, and new fuel sender. In early 2018, this 912 was sold immediately by European Collectibles to the current owner. During his ownership, he enlisted 911 Design in Montclair, California to carry out mechanical servicing and sorting. Receipts on hand for that work total $4,200.

Finished in its original color combination of Sand Beige with Beige Leatherette upholstery. The early green gauges with chrome bezels and brushed aluminum dash are in pristine condition. Paint and interior are in excellent condition. Mechanically superb with a powerful 1600cc engine, producing 100hp, with a smooth-shifting 5-speed manual 901 transmission. Matching numbers per Certificate of Authenticity. Complete with jack, tools, spare tire, detailed ownership history spanning from 1966-2019. An excellent opportunity to acquire an extremely well-documented stunning example of an early short wheelbase 912.

History (1966-1969)

Today, all but true Porsche enthusiasts may have forgotten that the Butzi Porsche-styled 901 (aka, 911) had a four-cylinder twin for the first five years of production. Introduced in 1965 as a replacement for the venerable old 356, the new four-cylinder Porsche brought the 911's new design across the entire product line. A 912 is essentially a 911 body paired with a pushrod four-cylinder, which was actually a slightly detuned variant of the 356SC motor. While the 912 did weigh 133 pounds more than the old 356C, the new body was more aerodynamic and had an optional five-speed gearbox, a $75 option for the 912, aided performance. Upon its introduction, the 912 sold for $4,700, and it outsold the 911 by a margin of two to one.
