Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1976 Porsche 912e. Placed in our care years ago, she is now being offer for sale. Originally designated a filler car for the 1976 model year, the 912e replaced the retiring 914. The water cooled 924 would not debut until; 1977. In many ways the car was a true 911 with the 2.0 motor.
That filler car turned out to be one of the most fun Porsches to drive with well balanced power, great brakes and gorgeous looks. This is car number 000092, a very early car of the 2100 produced. It’s the one you want in the right colour and with the right pedigree.
Between 2080 and 2100 912e cars were produced and they were made solely for the US market. Many succumbed to rust, accidents, engine changes and the ravages of time. Relatively few remain in the wild today. Our research shows few unblemished and untouched cars are available.
We think the Emerald Green Metallic paint is gorgeous. There are some flaws noticeable upon close inspection. Our resident inspector Tomo notes the slight traces of minor paint repairs: a tiny bit of overlapped clear coat is visible inside the door frame. Please review the video and see the photos. Original chrome and stainless greenhouse accents. Right side rearview mirror. Factory supplied Fuchs wheels. Crested center caps.
Beautiful interior upholstery, carpet, dash, headliner and door panels. Nice dash. Crested leather shift knob. 3 point front seat belts. Fold down rear seats. Excellent panel fit. JVC audio with 4 speakers. Removeable faceplate.
Floors are original and California solid. See the photos
14” Fuchs alloy wheels with new Achillies 205/60/R14 tires. Porsche crested center caps.
Awesome running 2.0 flat four with Bosch Jet-tronic fuel injection. All of the smog equipment is present and operating. Magnaflow exhaust.
The 5 speed manual transmission is working properly and feels great.
Four wheel disc brakes. New pads.
Fresh service, turnkey and ready to go. Fresh oil and filters. We understand that the car was previously maintained by the famed Otto’s Porsche Service in Venice. Unfortunately, no records either exist or can be found. Otto and the former owner of this car both passed in 2013.
The trim is in good to excellent shape. The “smile” rubber strip above the front bumper is beginning to deform a bit. The OEM part is inexpensive and available on ebay. See pics and video.
The glass is in good to excellent condition. Correct original Sekurit German glass except for the windshield which is clear.
The odometer shows 217,929 miles.
DMV / Documentation
The title is clear. A California smog certificate is provided for California residents. Very low cost Antique registration and insurance for most US States. A binder with pictures, detailed information, receipts and specs is included. Porsche Certificate of Authenticity has been ordered.
There are very few comparable 76 Porsche 912e cars for sale at this time. Perhaps you can find a car that needs work, has been rebuilt or previously wrecked or hot rodded. Find a real car in excellent survivor condition with great eye appeal and you have a very few cars indeed. Given the extreme scarcity of available cars, this Porsche 912e represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed immediately as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.
Please come inspect this great Porsche before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 41 year old used car. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car.
