Slate Grey over Red: a color combination that forever will grab my attention and hold it. It is both elegant and exciting as the interior and exterior colors are juxtaposed with one another. It also looks particularly good on early Porsches, whether the 356 or on the 912 we see here. The chrome accents show well with the Slate Grey paint and the Red seating has enough contrasting elements surrounding it that it doesn’t overwhelm you. It’s a combination I simply do not grow tired of.

The Porsche 912 is a sports car manufactured by Porsche of Germany between 1965 and 1969 as their entry-level model. A variant of the Type 911, one of the most famous and successful sports cars of all time, the 912 is a nimble-handling compact performance 2+2, delivering 90 SAE horsepower at 5800 rpm. It is capable of up to 30 miles per US gallon (7.8 L/100 km; 36 mpg‑imp) fuel economy. This combination is possible because of a high-efficiency flat-4 petrol engine, low weight, and low drag. The Type 912 initially outsold the 911, boosting the manufacturer’s total production until success of the 911 was assured. THE CAR LOOKS GREAT DOES HAVE RE BUILT CARBURETOR AND INTERIOR WAS RESTORE TO RED LEATHER WITH SALDE EXTERIOR PAINT ,ITS ONLY BEEN OWNED BY ONE PERSON AS BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE , LOOKS GREAT DRIVE AWESOME ANY QUESTIONS 480 8942369
Strictly on appearance this 912 is fantastic. Both exterior and interior look in very good condition even if neither is the original paint or seating material. However, the history and originality of the car are less certain. We aren’t provided with any documentation to verify that these are this 912’s original colors and while the seller thinks this is a one-owner car, he isn’t sure. That’s not the type of uncertainty that inspires confidence. The very low mileage also raises questions. I’m assuming the odometer has rolled over, but we don’t know for sure.
Nonetheless, bidding here has been strong. It sits at $46,012 and since it’s up for auction with no reserve we know someone will be going home with it. As I’ve mentioned previously, excellent examples of the 912 have shown some very high values of late. If the documentation of this 912 is available we may see another high price.
