Selling a 1965 Porsche 912 Coupe
When Porsche ended the production of the illustrious 356 models in 1965 and replaced it with the Porsche 911, a gap was left in the lineup that the 356 previously filled. Enter the 912. The 1965 Porsche 912 Coupe would be the cheaper alternative to the Porsche 911 and was fitted with the 1600 SC engine from the previous 356 models. Under the hood, a five-speed gearbox in conjunction with excellent aerodynamics would make the 912 Coupe the perfect addition to the Porsche lineup. Much more economical than the 911, the 1965 Porsche 912 would average approximately 25 miles per gallon versus the 16-20 miles per gallon that the 911 was getting. A more basic trim was also reflective of its price point and featured a plastic trimmed dash instead of Teak, no oil-pressure lamp or clock, and no option for a gas heater. Furthermore, wheels on the 912 were painted whereas the 911’s were chrome. These are just some of the features that help to identify a 912.
