You can build a nice type 4 with >120hp pretty easily.

Well that escalated quickly!

Did your E have an engine in it or was it missing its entire drivetrain?

*nevermind just read that it was removed prior to you buying it*

Actually the 2,2 T motor was rated at 140Hp. They are a sweet running motor as is. Additionally they can be easily hotrodded. My big bore 2,2 with E cams puts out over 180hp. I actually hated to retire it, as it is still a sweet running motor. (and for sale).

912E is a great platform. First year of the galvanized body plus you dont get that guilty feeling for molesting an "S" model. When I started to build mine the logic was that most people change or upgrade everything that separates the 912E from the 911 anyway like brakes, suspension, motor upgrades, ect. Here is my 912E based hotrod. Turbo 3.2 with 915 gearbox, everything else upgraded.

Nice car! Go to Youtube and type 1969 Porsche 912. There is this video on a black 912 that is really well done. I watch it over and over.

Question for the group

I will be doing a lot of body work on my 912E and was wondering what people are doing regarding the galvanizing that was done? In terms of after body work is done? Are you re-spraying the galvanize where you've removed it or leaving it without?


Thanks for your time.

I've got a 69 912 with a single weber carb 2 liter Type 4 Vanagon engine mounted to a 70 or 71 4 speed 911T gearbox. It's unable to do a burnout on a banana peel but cruises at 70 mph at about 3100 rpm vs. the old 616 912 engine and the original 5 speed that did the same speed at about 4,000 rpm.

Got it home and is all tucked away in the garage awaiting some body work

Had it at the shop to get the tub all straightened back out after the accident.

Shop was able to get everything back to within specs.
