Porsche - Porsche 912

The Porsche 912 was available from 1965 and is in essence a 911 Porsche fitted with the 1600cc 4 cylinder detuned version of what had been used in the 356 model. The high price of the 911 was pushing away some traditional Porsche customers to other makes, so the idea of the Porsche 912 was to have a car at a similar price level to the 356 which was coming to the end of its production. Since the new 911 was quite a price jump, Porsche and the agents were worried that sales of cars could be adversely affected. And Porsche must have been correct in this decision because the 912 vastly outsold the 911 to start with. The 912 also had better weight distribution with better handling. Production of the Porsche 912 ended in 1969 (with both standard and Targa versions), and was later replaced by the 914 model.

Tyre size for Porsche 912 is the Blockley 165VR15. Scrub them in and see just how good these Blockley tyres are. We guarantee that if you do not think they are the best tyres you have driven on, then we will refund! Anyone wanting to fit the wider tyres can use the tyre size 185/70VR15 which has the same diameter (as used on the 911 from 1968 in any case). See full details of both these tyre sizes below:
