The history of the Porsche 912
In 1965 the Porsche 912 was presented on the market for the first time. The 912 was available as Coupé but also as a Targa version. First of all, the 912 is equipped with the engine of the Porsche 356. Therefore, the Porsche 912 was driven by an air-cooled 4-cylinder boxer engine with central camshaft. In conclusion, the maximum speed of a Porsche 912 is 185 km/h and the 1.6 litre engine has an output of 90 hp.
For the time being, the Porsche 912 was regarded as an economy model by the automobile manufacturer Porsche. Nevertheless, it overtook the 911 one year after its introduction and quickly became a bestseller. Another great achievement of the Porsche 912 was its use in the police service. After the introduction of the Porsche 911 T (1969) the 912 got a competition from its own house and also a price reduction could not prevent the discontinuation of the Porsche 912.
1975 came the comeback of the Porsche 912 on the market. The Porsche 912 E was produced exclusively in the year 1975 for the American market. Thus Porsche offered a transitional solution between Porsche 914 and 924 with a Volkswagen engine (2 Litres).
