Make Porsche
Model 912

History Bought in Morro Bay, California in May 2010. A Porsche tech there bought it from the orginal owners. I think he had it maybe a few months to clean it up some and resell. He has several nice cars including a 59 with a Polo engine. I will be meeting with the orginal owners. They still have the orginal sales receit.... Now I do. 12/10/11 We just named the car Shep. The orginal owners are Larry and Linda Shepard and Larry just passed away. We wanted to name the car after them.
Exterior 912P script.
PCA badge was on the car when I bought it.
Elephant oil cooler lines and a trombone oil cooler.
I hope the trombone cooler cools enough as it looks like it belongs on this car.

Interior North Hollywood gauges. 2nd set of seats being made. Rear shelf replacing rear seats. 3 point belts. Some other stuff.
1 gauge

Performance Upgrades GBOX 901 with Wavetrac diff. A,GA,N,U,ZD
901 gears

Engine / Under the Hood Dean Polopolus. POLO engine DP902#1
The first in a 912.
Twin plug 993 heads w/titanium valves, 993 p&c 100mm, 993 stroke 74.6= 2400.2 cc's, a true 2.4

Dean Polopolus motor/Richard Clewett engine management

Suspension Front and rear sway bars(15mm F and 15mm R), orange Konis. Upgraded brakes, Brembo F / 67S type R, and other stuff. Going to SC front end and SC T bars, new F&R bushings.

Wheels and Tires Wheels are Fuchs 6x16F and 6 1/2x16R with a 5mm spacer.
1/2 inch added to rear inside rim. I made a pair of 7's with 911R offset but the 205's rubbed the ground down nut on the spring plate and there is no room to go out further as I won't roll the fenders.
Tires are 195/55 front and 205/55 rear. I was hoping to go 195/60 on 6's and 215/55 on 7's. If I had a 69 or later car it would have worked. 195/60 and 215/55 tires are within 1/100th and 11/100ths of a inch of 185/70/15's.
