Porsche 912: 50 Years

- The Porsche 912 is one of the most famous sports cars of all time, outselling the Porsche 911 almost two to one in 1966 - This book is a complete history of the development and design of the Porsche 912 When the Porsche 912 was introduced in the spring of 1965, some members of the staff were not quite happy with the new model, for it still had the four-cylinder engine of the 356 that was no longer in production, while the 911 already had the new six-cylinder, and had become a legend. However, the 911 was so expensive that many Porsche devotees in Germany could not, or did not want to, afford to buy it. For this reason, Porsche quickly needed a new, less expensive model so the 912 came into being, and from 1966 to 1969 about 32,000 vehicles were built. Apart from the Porsche 912 Coupe (1965 to 1969) this book also presents the Porsche 912 Targa (1966 to 1969). Less well-known, but all the more intriguing, is the story of the Porsche 912E, built in 1976 just for the US market, and of which only 2099 specimens exist.

A new book from Germany's Delius Klasing finally sets the record straight and shows the 912 to be an iconic sports coupe in its own right. -- Jared Paul Stern Airows, July 25 2016 The author conveys a large amount of technical information in telling the 912's story, but by design it is in an extremely accessible manner, so it seemingly disappears into the overarching thoughtfully presented historical narrative. More importantly for a book that has never been written as in-depth about the subject, the author uncovers and reveals a treasure trove of previously unknown information, revelations, and scoops on the model's development including that the 912 was developed in tandem with the 911, instead of as an afterthought as previously believed... Without a doubt, an absolute must for any 912 owner. Petrolicious A new book from Germany's Delius Klasing finally sets the record straight and shows the 912 to be an iconic sports coupe in its own right. Airows After years in the shadow of its big brother, the Porsche 912 gets its due with an in-depth look at its history and development in this gorgeous and lovingly compiled, 176-page ode to the four-cylinder, would-be 911.
