Vehicle Description

1968 Porsche 912 Coupe

• VIN 1280XXXX
• One Owner
• California Car

On November 21st, 1967, this 912 was purchased for $5,647.40 from Cotton Goff Volkswagen Porsche in Buena Park, California. Serviced at Cotton Goff until 1969 and other independent Porsche shops in Orange County over the years. The engine and transmission were both rebuilt by Andial Porsche Service in California. In 2012, the carburetors and distributor were rebuilt along with a valve adjustment by Orange Independent in Orange, California. EC has done a recent service and this 912 is ready to enjoy!

Finished in its original factory color combination of Slate Grey (6801) with Black upholstery. Solid original floor pans and front suspension with excellent gaps and panel fit. The paintwork is in good condition with rock chips on the front hood. The interior is original and well preserved with a brushed aluminum dash and the original AM/FM Blaupunkt radio.

Mechanically the 1600cc matching engine runs strong with a 4-speed manual transmission. Complete with the original invoice when sold new, maintenance record booklet, personal logbook, owner's manual, records from 1967-2017, spare tire, jack, tool kit, and a Porsche 912 service guide. A rare opportunity to own a well-documented 912 finished in a very desirable color combination.


As production of the 356-model concluded in late 1965, Porsche officially began production of the 912 Coupe. Styling, performance, quality construction, reliability, and price made the 912 a very attractive buy to both new and old customers, and it substantially outsold the 911 during the first few years of production. Porsche produced nearly 30,000 912 units.

1968 Porsche updated the 912 with a unique interior featuring black and white gauges, a padded dash, and doors with integrated door pockets and armrests. This gave the 912 the same interior that the 911 enjoyed. Other 68 only features included side reflectors and for the first time, an exhaust emissions system that required an external belt-driven pump.
