1969 Porsche 912
Engine # 4094766 (Original Engine)
Tranmission- Four Speed Gearbox
Actual mileage is 127,518. This mileage is supported from mechanical receipts dating back to 1969.
Original window sticker included. Purchased from Four J Motors, 6000 Pacific Blvd, Huntington Park, Calif.
Delivered on 3/29/69.
Many records for the car dating all the way back to 1969. Including the original red plastic Maintenance Record
book from Porsche.
Paint Code: 63-6803-H Ossi Blue
Original paint in the door jambs, car has been repainted Blue many years ago. Paint is driver quality and looks
very good five feet away but close examination shows scratches, checking, and some chips in the front.
This car is a time warp. Original carpets and original headliner. Even the interior smell of the car takes you
back to 1969. This is not a showcar, this is a car that has been driven and enjoyed. Hopefully this car will find
a home with somebody who will continue to drive it, just like it was designed to do.
CHASSIS- How much RUST???
We all know that every old 911/912 has rust. One of the worst places to find rust is around the rear torsion bar
tube area. This car shows NO rust around the rear torsion bar tubes. Quite often rust is found in the rocker
panel area and the bottom of the front fenders – this car is solid in both areas. I am not going to say there is
no rust but I can assure you that there is not the type of rust that is typically found in many of these cars. The
car was repainted many years ago, if they would have painted over rust there would be signs of the rust coming thru
the paint, no signs of rust are visible in the paint.

This 1969 Porsche 912 is special because it is a very original, unmolested long wheel base 912. The car is a
pleasure to drive and really takes you back in time. While there are plenty of cosmetic flaws through-out the car
they are the type of flaws that happen when you use a car. The general condition of the car represents a car that
has been taken care of it whole life, as all the mechanical receipts give evidence. Runs and drives very well.

About 30 years before Ferdinand Porsche designed the Volkswagen Beetle, he created the Egger-Lohner electric vehicle, C.2 Phaeton model - or simply, the P1 - you see above. This was the first vehicle created by Porsche, and the car gets its nickname from the fact that he had stamped "P1" on many of the parts marking it as the first Porsche... sorry, 356 No. 1.
Now while you'd think that such an important piece of Porsche heritage has been in a museum or even the automaker's not-so-secret lair, it has actually been sitting at a warehouse for the last 112 years. Thankfully, that's all about to change as Porsche has recovered P1, and the car will soon be on "permanent display" at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart.
The P1 has a 3 horsepower motor capable of delivering a top speed of 21 miles per hour and a driving range of 49 miles, and, like many vehicles in Porsche's history, the motor is positioned at the rear of the vehicle. According to the press release posted below, the P1 finished first in a 24-mile electric vehicle race in Berlin in 1899, but it has been sitting since 1902.
Not a month after the Porsche 911 Reimagined by Singer visited Jay Leno's garage, another artfully restored Porsche has rolled in. This time it's a 1957 Porsche 356A Outlaw, the "outlaw" moniker referring to Porsches that have been restored outside the bounds of period-correct orthodoxy.
This 356A was literally done from the ground up by Michigander Chuck Olenyk, the floor of the car having fallen apart so badly that he couldn't remove the roof at first since it was holding the vehicle together. Olenyk said that of the 2000 hours over seven years that he spent restoring the car, 500 were spent just on repairing the rust. That's undoubtedly some of the reason why when he tried to sell the unrestored car as a roller in the nineties for $1,000, no one would take it off his hands.
Olenyk fitted a mildly tuned engine from a Porsche 912, the transmission from a 356B, the brakes from a 356C, Fuchs mags and a modified replicar Speedster roof from Intermecchnica. It lacks nothing even with just 115 horsepower, and it adds to that with charm and aural appeal. You can see and hear the full story in the video below.
Porsche has finally let released all of the details on the 918 Spyder, the German brand's challenger to the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari, after months of leading our poor, performance-loving hearts on. The covers were lifted at the Volkswagen Group night, an enormous precursor to the Frankfurt Motor Show, and include a massive, 11,000-word press release that's attached at the bottom of this page.
The 918 Spyder features a mid-mounted, dry-sump-lubricated, 4.6-liter V8 engine that generates 608 horsepower when left to its own devices. Combined with a trio of electric motors, which produce 286 hp, the total system horsepower for the 918 Spyder rests at 887 ponies. That's less than the McLaren P1 (903 hp) and the LaFerrari (949 hp), but the Porsche is also likely to be a bit cheaper, starting at $845,000, while the McLaren will be in the seven-figure range for certain, and it will more than likely be joined by the LaFezza.
The 918 Spyder counters with a 2.8-second jog to 62, a 7.7-second run to 124 and it will hit 186 in 22 seconds.
