“ Technically and externally, the 912 was virtually identical to the 911. However, its rear end housed the 1.6-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine from the 356 SC. For its introduction in the 912, the output of this engine was reduced from 95 to 90 hp at 5,800 rpm in order to provide more traction and greater stability. Transmission was via a 4-speed manual gearbox. We do not have a clear power, it is more of an elastic propellant that more than meets the lightness of the set and the oldschool sensations. ” — Jordi Edo
Very balanced set without being a contest state.
Invoices that prove investments made and care. Completely original, never damaged and without occasional pending mechanical work. At Valentín Motors, it is delivered with a 12-month mechanical guarantee and pre-delivery inspection carried out.
Both the exterior and the interior are in a very good state of preservation, with original interiors and good condition.
It’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder boxer engine and 90 hp propelled its 970 kg to exceed 190 km/h and needed less than 12 seconds to reach 100 km/h from a standstill, with average consumption below 8 l/100 km
Consumption was a very important point for the brand’s engineers as a sales argument for the new 912
The 912 was practically a carbon copy of the 911 at a technical level and in external appearance. The difference lay in what was hidden under its rear hood, the same 1.6 boxer engine from the 356 SC (Type 616). This four-cylinder had sleeves with a special coating, a nickel and silicon alloy -known commercially as Nikasil, the same alloy that has so brilliantly accompanied the generations to subsequent generations until 993 until the appearance of the Alusil in the block M96 and M97 of the already water-cooled generations of the 996, 997 etc…
The engine was fed by two So Pll-4 carburettors. This made it easier and more comfortable to move at relaxed paces and improved traction and stability. Power transmission was logically to the rear wheels.
