I read a UK magazine called Classic Porsche. There are several very fine shops in your country. My advice is take the car to one of them and get a pre purchase inspection. It could be a very fine car or a real nightmare.
Good luck in your search. A very nice 912 is a real gem indeed.

Many thanks for that. I guess that's the next step!
