I’m not going to mince words here: I think this car is fantastic. Not in that high-dollar super-car performance sense of the word, but for the simplicity and execution of the build along with its overall look. What we have here is a 1969 911 body fitted with a race prepped 1.6 liter flat-4 from the 912 that has been mounted as far forward as the body would allow. The 912 was reputed to be a more capable handling machine relative to its more heralded 911 siblings in part because of the better chassis balance provided by the smaller and lighter 4-cylinder engines they utilized. Added to that capable handling is a sub-1800 lb weight propelled by an engine tuned to produce 130 hp. This car is sure to provide lively performance and immense driving fun. I’ll leave our readers to peruse the rest of the ad copy for a fuller sense of all the work done on this car. It appears very well executed.

This is one of those rare times when I think the seller may have undervalued the market for his own car. Or perhaps he’s just very realistic and I’ve grown too accustom to seeing Porsches offered at above market value. Bidding right now is at $24,100 and while the reserve has not been met, with a Buy It Now of $28,750 I feel pretty confident that we’ll see a sale here. This is a fully sorted and documented race car that is ready to drive and whose build would come at three to four times the price being asked here. It goes without saying that any serious buyer should know exactly what he or she is getting into with this sort of car, but I can’t help but think that this is a bargain.
