Yesterday’s 930 brought with it a good deal of vintage flair with its golden-hued Platinum Metallic exterior over a Cork leather interior. It’s a combination that we almost never see on any modern automobile. Here we’ll turn the clock back just a little further for one of Porsche’s best vintage colors, and while the interior is a much more standard black, the beauty of the exterior provides all the charm we might need. Here we have a restored Bahama Yellow 1966 Porsche 912, located in New York, with a reported 36,687 miles on it. There isn’t much here to verify that mileage figure for us, but the rest looks fantastic!

Back in January a similar Bahama Yellow ’67 912 sold for just over $114K at Gooding and Co.’s Amelia Island auctions. It was a pretty stunning example that sold for an equally stunning price. It certainly showed better than this Bahama Yellow 912 so I wouldn’t expect a similar sort of price here. That said I am curious just where the line will be for this one as it’s currently bidding at a much lower $34,012.
But let’s not let the level of bidding detract from this one because it does look really nice. I can’t say I’m a huge fan of yellow lenses on a Bahama Yellow car, but that’s hardly a significant issue for those who want to make the change. And overall it sounds to be well sorted and, while not totally original, in possession of most of its original items. For a 912 it looks to be a really nice example of these early younger siblings to the 911. Bidding certainly will have to rise and we’ll have an eye on it to see ultimately where things end.
