The 1967 Porsche 912 saw the first changes to the model since its release in 1965. While they were few, a modified transmission and engine mounts, new door locks, and a different horn button were among the changes. Also in the 1967 model year, Porsche released a Targa option, which featured a removable roof panel, fixed rollover bar, and a zippered, soft-plastic rear window. Later, in 1968, a fixed-glass rear window became available as an option. As with previous Porsche 912 models, the 1967 912 offered buyers of the time an alternative to the powerful and expensive 911 and was quite popular. In total, approximately 25,000 Coupes were produced throughout the production span, while nearly 2,500 Targas were manufactured. The 912 concept would be revisited in 1976 when Porsche would release the 912E for one year only. Similarly, it was intended to protect Porsche’s entry-level position as the 914 was phased out.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a 1967 Porsche 912, you’ve come to the right place to explore Buyer’s Tips and Buyer’s Guides from the experts at The Beverly Hills Car Club. As with any classic car, particularly any classic Porsche, it is important to check the car thoroughly for any signs of damage including rust, previous paint or bodywork, originality, and completeness. Further, if you’re looking for a great everyday driver, you’ll want to have a third-party inspection to ensure all components are in working order and to understand what items may need replaced or repaired to make it road-worthy. Because the Porsche 912 was an entry-level sports car, many owners during the time did not take the best care of their vehicles. For this and many reasons, it is imperative to find the best 912 you can for your money. Another Buyer’s Tip that collectors and enthusiasts sometimes overlook is the fact that the 912 shares many of the body parts and trim pieces with the 912. These can be expensive, so be sure to do your research prior to purchase.
