Bahama Yellow 1968 Porsche 912 Coupe

I don’t know what my most commonly featured 912 color is, but if you told me it was Bahama Yellow I wouldn’t be surprised. It’s an absolutely wonderful color that possesses tons of character, but it isn’t so bright you have to worry about blinding your friends and neighbors. So let’s look at another one: this one-owner (sort of) 1968 Porsche 912 Coupe, located in California, with a reported 51,545 miles on it. It’s said to be matching numbers and with a full history since new. The paint isn’t original, but the 20+ year-old respray still looks quite good. Just a lovely car!

About the ownership: this isn’t quite a one-owner 912 since the original owner passed away a while back. His son got the car. Perhaps it was never retitled in the son’s name, thus making it appear to be one owner, I don’t know. Regardless, it seems to at least be one family and that can be just as good from a service records and historical documents perspective. It would help account for it coming with records since it was new. It’s also said to have been serviced by the same dealer (interestingly, a Volvo dealer) for its entire life. At least some mechanic should be familiar with it!

Overall this is a nice looking example. The paint looks in nice shape all around and the interior presents well. There don’t appear to be any major concerns and the engine was said to have been rebuilt only 3K miles ago. I’d imagine for those searching for a 912, especially one in Bahama Yellow, it should make a good one to pursue. Regarding that pursuit: there have already been 113 bids on this 912. That’s mostly from one bidder presumably being bid up by another interested bidder, but however we got here it sure seems like someone is quite interested. It wouldn’t shock me if this no-reserve auction ended in a sale prior to auction’s end.

I will be quite curious at what price this sells because it was another Bahama Yellow 912 that shocked me with its sale price one year ago: $114K. For a 912! That was an exceptional example so I wouldn’t expect something similar here. However, that high price came about because of two bidders refusing to let the other have the car. Up and up the bidding went. While I don’t expect a similar price, might we see a similar phenomenon here?

  1. This car is also being sold as a 911 and 912 in Pennsylvania and Seattle

    Hard to know who is scamming whom, but I suspect these two are scammers (ie. describes a car as both a 911 and a 912, and provides only one photo, and barely any information)
