You are viewing one of the 801 Targas built in 1969 as a 912. I have owned this great Porsche for over 6 years and for most of its life before me, its history was controlled by a helicopter pilot, who's care and maintenance went far beyond routine. I have all the service records, that not only document the original 68 K miles, but also show how the intense maintenance, went, far beyond what is required for any vehicle driven on land, and not flown. Although it may not have been necessary, at 51 K miles, the engine was completely rebuilt, using all genuine Porsche parts. The engine tin and all components, still have their original paint. I don't think you'll ever find a 912 with a service history, to match this one. Have a look at the photo of the push rod tubes, that still look new, after many years and 17 K miles. The original Solex carburetors, have just been professionally rebuilt, and run better than any of those Weber conversions. My criteria in looking for a long wheelbase 912, was to find one without the typical cracked dash, and I ended up with something, so much more. The interior upholstery, and carpeting is original, and in exceptional condition. I have the original radio, and it goes with the car. For you European buyers. this was a high optioned car, that is also factory equipped with a gas heater, that is neatly tucked in the smugglers box. The original switch is mounted on the dash, just below the speedometer.
