    HISTORY OF THE 1965 PORSCHE 912
    While it has been suggested that Porsche did not originally intend the 911 as a replacement for the 356, when the 911 was first shown in 1963 made the 356 design appear rather dated. Porsche quickly surmised that they have to adapt the new 900 series design into a proper successor for the 356 which would end production in 1965. The end result was the adaptation of the 356SC 4-cylinder engine into a 911 body; thus, the Porsche 912 was created. First offered in the middle of 1965, the 912 Porsche weighed 200 pounds less due to its lighter engine. Some still argue that the 912 is a more balanced and better handling car than the early 911s. The 912 engine benefited from many years of development during 356 production, which made the 912 a very desirable model upon its release. 912 production began during April 1965 with bodies being constructed in house by Porsche and by the coachbuilders at Karmann. Due to the mid-year introduction, early 912s have several unique features including a matching body color painted dashboard with three gauges. During the 1960's Porsche would shut down the factory during the month of August to allow a month long holiday for employees. As such the true 1965 model 912's were only produced for a few months during the summer of 1965. Today, very few of these early model 3-guage 912s survive. Only 1,500 were constructed with Karmann commissioned bodies while another 699 were assembled fully in house at Porsche.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
