Garage
Vehicle Name 912-6
Year 1966
Make Porsche
Model 912
Color red
History Got this car as an abandoned project- previous owner had removed the broken 912 engine and welded in 911 engine mounts, replaced presumably rusty floorpan, installed fiberglass turbo flares on back, replaced original front fenders w/ fiberglass, removed all glass and interior, painted an unknown single-stage red
flares, tail and new paint came with the car
BBS replica wheels fill out fenders much better than Fuchs knock-offs did, but ultimately I plan to
poor old steering wheel needs to go to a good home
interior stripped, found virtually NO rust, coated with 2-coats of "Lizard Skin" sound deadener, the
my mentor
no longer your average 912
Exterior Fiberglass flares added front and rear by PO, along with IROC whale tail (I have a duck that will eventually replace the tail), fiberglass front & rear bumpers

Interior RS carpet kit, '87 carrera front seats, newer 3-point retractable seat belts, different steering wheel, new headliner, new rubber seals all around

Performance Upgrades So far, backdated exhaust, Zenith carbs (w/ custom venturis and 2.7-appropriate jetting), larger 2-chamber master cylinder (along with a completely rebuilt brake system), and one of the very last sets of US-made/Pelican-available SSIs available.

Engine / Under the Hood 2.7 conversion project (engine currently being rebuilt) thermal reactors removed, 11-blade fan, remote oil cooler.

Suspension New Koni shocks out back, but otherwise stock 912 (with factory sway bar) so far, plan to replace front w/ SC or Carrera assembly and go from there.

Wheels and Tires unknown wide 15" rims, but 17" Euromeisters on the way
