1976 Porsche 912E PrivateCars - Portland - 17 views
This 1976 Porsche 912E is finished in yellow over tan and is one of approximately 2,100 examples produced for a single model year. The car was reportedly sold new in California and acquired in 2003 by its previous owner, who commissioned a repaint in 2007 and converted the A/C system to R134a. The fuel-injected 2.0L flat-four was recently rebuilt by the selling dealer and is mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle. This 912E is now being offered for sale with service records beginning in 2003 and a clean Oregon title.
The body was repainted yellow in 2007 by Finn’s Autobody & Restoration of Molalla, Oregon. A receipt from the associated work totaling approximately $15k is provided in the gallery, which also contains close-up photos of the exterior and lenses.
Refinished 14” Fuchs wheels wear a mixed set of Hercules All Season tires and Yokohama Avid rubber. A brake fluid flush was recently performed by the selling dealer. The car retains “sugar scoop” headlight rings and is not equipped with a sunroof.
The interior is trimmed in tan upholstery and features a three-spoke Porsche sport steering wheel, a period aftermarket cassette stereo, and air conditioning. The latter has been converted to run R134a refrigerant.
VDO instrumentation includes a 150-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 5,600-rpm redline, as well as a temperature gauge unique to the 912E. The 6-digit odometer shows just over 159,500 miles.
The 2.0-liter Type 4 flat-four is equipped with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection and linked with a Type 923 5-speed manual transaxle. The engine was rebuilt approximately 50 miles ago in May 2019 by the selling dealer, including new piston rings, new main and rod bearings, regrinding the camshaft, a new clutch disc and pressure plate, rebuilding the cylinder heads, and more as outlined on an invoice provided below.
Further images of the underbody and suspension are viewable in the gallery, along with additional service records from the previous owner.
