VIN# 9126000483

In 1976, Porsche brought back its four-cylinder 912 model for one year as a less-pricey alternative to the fairly expensive six-cylinder 911. Just 2,099 of the 912E sports coupes were built as a replacement for the mid-engine 914.

In turn, the 912E (the E stands for Einspritzung, German for fuel injection) was replaced as Porsche’s entry-level model after a year of production by the front-engine 924.

The 912E has the look and manners of the more-powerful 911, but its 2.0-liter four banger generates around 86 horsepower, although that is enough to propel the lightweight coupe to 60 mph in under 10 seconds. Like the 914, the ’76 version of the 912 uses the same injected opposed-four engine as the Volkswagen 412.
