On April 5, 1965 Porsche officially began production of the 912 coupé. 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 coupé units during a five-year manufacturing run. This beautiful 1968 Porsche 912 coupé with matching numbers was purchased by in 1968 with only 2,700 miles by its second and current owner. It has been well taken care of and used as a daily driver. The Polo Red paint is in excellent condition having been taken down to bare metal and repainted 5 years ago. The original black interior is in great condition and shows well. The 1.6L engine runs smoothly and is ready to get up and go. Whether you are looking for a car to take to shows or out for a Sunday cruise, this is the Porsche for you! Feel free to come see the car located in Northwest Houston. Don’t miss the opportunity to own this fine example of a Porsche 912 coupé.
