The Porsche 912 is one of the most famous sports cars of all time, outselling the Porsche 911 almost two to one in 1966 This book is a complete history of the development and design of the Porsche 912 When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built. Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupe (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist."

After the successful 356 Porsche introduced the new shaped 911 in 1965 but this was expensive. Porsche's answer was to put the engine from the 356 in to the 911 body and call it the 912; this came towards the end of 1965 when 356 production was phased out. Generally speaking all running changes made to the 911 were made to the 912 at the same time. The 912 was phased out at the end of 1969 to make way for the 914. The 912 was brought back in 1976 with a 4 cylinder engine and called a 912E. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, specification and technical data, new model introductions, development, long-term appraisals, owner's survey, retrospective. Models covered include: • Targa • CoupT • 912E
