Not 5 but 3: ’66 Porsche 912
Really early Porsches are prized by collectors. One would assume that although they are not the most fully developed versions, their purity of design trumps all. Early Jaguar E-Types fall in the same category. They aren’t as nice to drive as versions a few years down the road. Today’s find is a rare 3-gauge, painted dash 912. Again, some don’t think that should make a 912 more valuable, but others do. The only photo provided depicts what appears to be one nice looking example finished in a very pleasant and fairly rare Gulf Blue. If it was originally Gulf Blue that would be really cool but alas, it was born Polo Red. Porsche aficionados don’t like color change cars from a valuation point of view. They can penalize a car up to 20% for the infraction. But this is a 912 and not a 911S so a dramatic rise in valuation should not be a goal. If you like Gulf Blue and the rest of the car is as it should be, don’t walk away. They are pleasant cars to own and drive and people won’t be asking for your “papers” at every event you decide to participate in. The asking price is $39,900 and frankly, we have to get used to 912s fetching that kind of money. Click here for the listing.
