913, Anyone else seen one?

I saw this in NorCal last summer and had to take some pix. I have posted elsewhere but no one seems to have any answers other than "they don't exist" or "it's a fake badge." The badge has obviously been on the car for a long time. If the badge is fake, I don't get it. "These go to 11?" Why not 915 or 919?

The factory does not list a 913. I would say that the owner had a 913 badge made for his 67 912. If it also had a 913 on the glove box. Then it might of been a factory hybrid. However, the numbers are too square. The 9 and 3 corners should be more rounded

They do have 914s, 916s, and 917s besides the 911s and 912s.

Can you get the Vin number off the car? We have a 74 Turbo which they did not make and the vin# is outside the production run so Porsche does not even list it being made but we have it so they did.

913?

Just cos it has a badge on it, doesn't mean it is so. Someone with a sense of humour I suspect.
Our hosts have for sale deck lid badges which denote engine sizes that were never mass-produced by Porsche - fabricated for the R Gruppe crowd.
I remember back in the 80's when Rinspeed modified a 911 to a slant nose using the headlights and the rear turn signal lights from a 928 and badged the car "939"
Closer to home, there's a 912 running about with a 356D badge on it.

i mean im getting ready to swap a 2.2 ltr 911 engine into a 66 912 will i have a 911.5?

its a cool old badge no less and i would hang it in the garage.

cheers ed

saw that car

That car was by my girlfriend's house for a few years but now it's gone. there were two what I thought were 912s. one disappeared about the first of the year so I stopped and looked at the other and it said "913". Never have seen anyone at the house to ask them about it but now I'm going to have to knock on the door and ask. They also have a Karmen Ghia sitting there.

I think for obvious reasons the Porsche factory would never use the number "13" as a suffix in their 900-series...

I remember reading about someone built a 900 model with a Mazda rotary engine and called it "Porsche 913". I wouldn't be surprised if you could find several other Porsche based hybrids, all with the number 913.
