Porsche 912 LHD coupe by Karmann 1966

Porsche 912 LHD coupe by Karmann 1966


Matching numbers SWB 3-dial 912 from 1966.

This is a great alternative to a classic 911, bringing the same beauty to your drive and, with this particular example, performance and handling that are more than a match for a period 6 cylinder machine.

It’s a beauty! The original shade of 6601 Slate grey, recently refinished with glass out and back to bare metal. The body is super straight, the original panels giving neat shut lines. Look underneath and you will find the same – original panels here too (only a minor repair to the battery box is all we have seen). It is very, very unusual to see one like this.

A matching numbers car, it has the original books and is in its original configuration, with 3 dial dash, the wood rim wheel, the spot lamps, brushed alloy dash and the desirable five speed transmission. It presents very well whilst still retaining a lovely patina with original brightwork, lenses and much of the interior. The headlining has been renewed.

The original engine has been improved; now with 1,720 cc thanks to new barrels and pistons. Weber carbs plus a sports cam help towards a very usable 110 bhp on the rolling road. This makes it the perfect alternative to a 6 cylinder, with a better power-to-weight ratio. It’s lively, responsive and great around the corners. The result is a classic Porsche you can enjoy whenever you want, for any type of journey or European tour.

Complete with original book pack (which is ultra rare) and includes the driver’s operating manual and service book, this indicates that this Porsche was supplied via Porsche’s European delivery program where U.S. citizens could take delivery of their new Porsche in Europe, enjoy driving it for a few weeks before shipping home, in this case to California. Also the original tool roll and spare wheel.

Expect a classic Porsche that looks beautiful and is a pleasure to drive. And it’s all ready to enjoy……. straight away.
