Please note that experience shows us that the photobucket of over 100 large pixel pictures posted here are in most cases best viewed and downloaded using the very latest and most updated version of the 'Firefox' browser as some other browsers and especially older browser versions are not capable of accommodating the size of the download. Over the years our clients have overwhelmingly been appreciative of our many unaltered large pixel photos posted in our ads and our feedback has been that it is very rare that a dealer will post all but the most flattering of professionally finished photographs. We prefer to post the many photos taken of the car. in sometimes unflattering but natural sunlight. in order for our prospective buyers to be able to see true and reliable images of the car advertised and that is the reason for some seemingly duplicated shots. We trust you will agree. West Coast Classics are proud to present an absolutely stunning and exceptional example of this very rare original southern California owner 1976 912E 2. 0L 4 cylinder coupe with all original Bosch fuel injection system. a 5 speed manual transmission. it's all original and very striking condition factory 'Black' paint. beautiful black leatherette front seats. factory 'Porsche' forged alloy and highly polished striking wheels. factory electric sunroof. leather covered sport steering wheel and radio! Purchased and originally serviced by original and only southern California owner at the 'Alan Johnson Porsche dealership' of San Diego. California on 3/25/1976 with all original owners manual and dealer stamped service handbook. In most recent years serviced at owner's second home in Palm Desert. California at 'Exotic Car Service'. of Cathedral City. California where the car recently received a full service including all new brake rotors. calipers and brake pads and a new brake master cylinder. Both the car's paint and interior are in outstanding and completely original condition (always garaged from the sun). This car truly has to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated. The original factory Black color paint is in very fine condition with only a few very minor imperfections. such as a minor rock chip and some thinning in some areas. only noticeable upon close inspection and the cars original engine #4060582 is extremely strong and very smooth running with only 101K original miles. The original and highly desirable 5 speed manual transmission # 923/02 5060550 shifts smoothly and effortlessly through the gears with none of the typical synchro problems common in these year models and the car drives exactly like a well maintained and cared for 912E should. The temperature always remains cool and the car does not burn oil and there are no noticeable oil leaks. All the options are working as they should. Obviously never abused. owned and driven since new by one mature and retired southern California family owner! Always garaged with no accidents or damage and absolutely no rust whatsoever. Well maintained and serviced by only Porsche specialists since new! Overall a very fine and rare example of this very desirable and collectible classic - the 912E air-cooled 2. 0L coupe - increasingly hard to find in such great all original condition or in such a head-turning and striking all Black color combination! The 912 was a combination of the 911 body and the 356 engine and was produced in it's initial form from 1965-1969. then later revived after a six year absence in 1976 as the 912E for one year only! The 912E was produced with the later body style and only for the U. S market. It also used the 911 body but had the VW-based four cylinder engine of the 914/2. 0 except with thermal reactors. Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection instead of D-Jetronic and a 914 clutch assembly. Porsche built only 2. 92 of these 912 models! As a testament to the timelessness of this Porsche design. compare the 912E with a 1960's 911 coupe. and with the exception of the turn signals now integrated into the new bumpers for a more streamlined look. the models look virtually identical which might explain why these late sixties and seventies Porshe's never look outdated and why their values only tend to increase year after year! Without a doubt you will look long and hard to find a finer all original matching #'s 5 speed manual. factory electric sunroof example - reportedly one of only approximately 500 factory sunroof 912E's built - in perfect shape for the Porsche enthusiast or any classic sports car collector!For further information contact West Coast Classics through Ebay or on 310-399-3990 during regular California business hours.
