This 1966 Porsche 912 is currently wearing Martini livery but there is some "go" to back up the "show." A 2110cc motor fed by dual Webers puts out an owner claimed 140 HP. As with most of the cars that come and go through the Moto Roster garage, we miss our 912. We can only imagine how it would have been with twice the horsepower and a shorter wheelbase like this specimen.
This 912 has spent all of its life in the dry climates of Arizona, Nevada, and now California. The seller claims that there are no rust issues and that the floorboards and suspension points are solid. Some old work is noted in the left quarter panel but the title on this Porsche is still clean and the seller says that all of the gaps are still good.
Grey paint looks good if a bit tired and the seller says that the paint is "old and pretty thin, [has] some cracking, overall a nice patina." The car was originally green but we like the unique grey. We also like the stance with staggered tires on deep six Fuchs.
Inside, the dash has been painted but this wouldn't be early enough to be a true painted dash. We like the Prototipo wheel, but we'd probably swap the included original seats back in.
The seller says that the car had a "tired non-numbers matching 912 engine" in it when he acquired it and he swapped it out for a custom engine build based on an Autolinea aluminum case. We've heard some good and bad about the Autolinea units, but this build looks to be well done and the seller claims that it has about 10k miles on it and runs cool. A video is included that shows a smooth running, tidy motor.
This is right up our alley and the seller hits it on the head: "Overall a very fun driver, probably not the right car for a collector or concours person." Find this Renegade 912 on TheSamba in Auburn, California.
