What is a Porsche 912?

The Porsche 912 looks like a 911, but it is not the same. Porsche decided that they needed a in-between 911 variant to bridge the price gap between the Porsche 356, which was still being produced, and the new 911. The result was the the Porsche 912. Launched in 1965 the 912 was a less expensive and less powerful variant of the 911. Unlike the 911, it was powered by the 1.6-litre flat-four engine from the 356 SC. This gave the 912 significantly less power, its power output was reduced from 95 to 90 hp. The 912 was available in coupe and targa models. The 912 is the iconic green one that Robert Redford drove in the movie Spy Game. Very cool. #porsche #porsche912 #porsche911
