1965 PORSCHE 912 COUPE
Daniel Schmitt & Co. is extremely proud to present without question one of the rarest and most desirable Porsches to have ever graced our showroom. This is one of only six, U.S. specification, true 1965 Porsche 912s known to exist according to the 912 registry. It has just undergone an beautiful restoration, and is now ready for a new home with the most discriminating collector or enthusiast. The reasons this car is rarely seen in the U.S. are simple: The 1965 Porsche 912 was announced in April 1965 and was presented as a “European type” available only to the old continent dealer network, as the 356 C and SC were designated as the 1965 U.S. Porsche models. These earliest 912s were picked up by Americans at the Porsche factory or imported directly to Porsche of American Corp. in Teaneck, New Jersey, which is exactly where we acquired this example. There are telling differences to determine this car is a true 1965 U.S. spec model: it has four-hole horns grilles, which were used only in 1965, its Ruby Red paint code is a 1965 only 6402, its speedometer is in M.P.H., it has the painted dash in the style of a 356 with three gauges, its engine number begins in 740 (German and Swedish models begin in 830), and finally its build date is August 18, 1965. 1966 models began being built in September, meaning it is also certainly one of the last 1965s ever built. This is an opportunity that is sure to pass quickly. Vintage Porsches are among the hottest collectible cars on the market today and this one is among the rarest on offer anywhere. While this is one of the rarest 912s in existence, any Porsche 912 is exceedingly rare with less than half the amount produced than the highly sought after 356. Do not hesitate. Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013 and posting gains of 395-percent over the last 10-years.
