Having a quick flick through the DDK classifieds this morning and spotted a link to this beautiful 1965 Porsche 912 for sale. Couldn’t believe the price – is it a record? For overseas users, £38k is $61k US or €46k EU.
From the ad: “The car has had a full, cost no object, restoration and has been stripped to bare metal and sprayed by Brookfield Classics to their usual incredible high standards. The restoration is 3 years old and the car has only covered around 1500 miles to shows etc and has lived in a protective bubble since. I firmly believe this to be the finest restored early 912 available.
“The interior is all new and the engine bay is equally concours condition. The car was a US import in the 90’s and has a massive history file with bills way back into the 70’s and even the original US plate. The engine is not a matching number to the car but is strong and runs faultlessly. All in all this is a beautiful car of the highest standards and a real investment with this being a short wheel base, 3 dial early car and 912 prices rising.”
The price gap from best 911s to best 912s is always a bone of contention. If I was doing a classic Porsche insurance valuation for this car, I’m guessing I might be in the £30k-band, but as an asking price in private sale that number seems a bit of a challenge. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts.
Not saying it won’t get it or that 912s are a problem. Stay cool, 912ers.
