There’s a lot to like about this $15k Porsche 912 on The Samba:
[…] This is truly an amazing opportunity to experience a gorgeous, tight handling 912 but with gobs of extra horsepower that a factory 912 driver could only dream of! I bought this car with the original engine (which is still in great condition) and it is certainly included in the sale. But when I step on the pedal, I want to hear that throaty exhaust roar while being pushed back into my seat! Consequently I had a brand new 2.3 liter VW engine custom built and installed with all the latest improvements including full flow filter and external cooling systems (over $8,000 with no expense spared). It really showed on the dyno, showing 160 hp and over 170 lbs. of torque. The engine is less than a year old and has about 10,000 miles on it.
This car has been gone over with a fine tooth comb! […]
First, it looks a lot like the uber expensive early 911’s at a fraction of the cost. Second, it shows well with a lot of shove regardless of the fact that it’s not based on the 356/912 motor. Third, it does include the original motor fully rebuilt!
Normally I’d think a car like this would be very reasonable for $10-12k. But with the stock motor rebuilt and included with the sale, which could easily be valued at well over $3k if done correctly, makes this a good buy in my mind.
