A great alternative to a 911, simple, fast and exciting.
This Short Wheel Base Porsche is a delight to drive, agile, lively and involving.....cool too. It's the right bones and has the right stuff done. You can get on and enjoy it. It is numbers matching and is surprisingly original.
Weighing in at only 870 kg, the power to weight ratio of this uprated 912 makes for an exciting Porsche. It benefits from significant investment of late, in preparation for its 2,500 miles tour across Europe which it managed without glitch.

Chassis 455133 was supplied new in Slate grey, it looks to have been ordered as a tourist delivery, leaving Belgium and on to California, and likely lived there all its life. At some point it received a repaint in red. Currently sporting a retro-style 'Marlboro' livery, these decals could be removed should you want to go back to grey (which we can do in our restoration department).
It has a good shell, with original sills and kidneys, a small repair around a battery box and no sign of accidents, appears to have the original panels, doors, lids, original owners and workshop manual, glass, brightwork, correct lamps, spot lamps and lenses.
A good Grade 3 classic, ready to use and enjoy without concern for the immediate future.
