From 1965 to 1969, the 912 was Porsche’s four-cylinder entry-level model. The model was phased out until in 1976 it made a one-year appearance in North America.
In 1976, Porsche brought out the 912e as a transitory model as it moved from the 914 (discontinued after 1975) to the 924 model. The 1976 Porsche 912E took over the entry-level slot until the new 924 model took over as the 914′s official replacement in 1977.
The 912e came with the 911S bodywork, but didn’t have the high-performance the Carrera featured. Only 2,099 were ever produced making it a rare and intriguing Porsche. It is practical, but still sporty. “Simple yet sophisticated.”
