In the Autumn of 1975 the 912E, internally designated at the factory as the Type 923, became the companion to the 911S. Intended for sale in North America, rising fuel prices and lowered U.S. speed limits helped make the 912E a practical model. Production commenced by May 1975, after the 914/4 was discontinued, and before the water-cooled four-cylinder 924s had arrived. As noted in factory advertising [click left image to read text] the 912E was powered by the 2.0 liter fuel-injected 914-derived engine “which took Porsche engineers two years to develop and refine”, and shared the chassis and body styling of the 911S coupe. The Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system used is often referred to as the Air Flow Controlled (AFC) system later adapted for use in the 911 series. Options included electric sunroof, limited slip, and air conditioning. With its 21 U.S. gallon fuel tank and fuel-efficient engine, the 912E’s driving range may be the best of any Porsche ever made to date, 600+ miles.
In June 1976 912E production ended in Zuffenhausen with the completion of number 2099. This final 912E also became Porsche’s last air-cooled four-cylinder production car.
This is a fun little coupe with a full Weissach treatment in a perfect retro colour. Enjoy a part of Porsche history at a justifiable price tag.
