You may have seen this Porsche model and thought it was a 911.
It was not. James Derek Sapienza:
The 912’s lifespan was brief, just six nonconsecutive years versus the 911’s 52 years-and-counting run. But its place in history is assured; it may be one of the lesser known models in company lore, but it served an incredibly important role for Porsche when the future didn’t seem so certain. It bridged the gap between the present and the future, then returned at a time when the company desperately needed help in the U.S. market. For decades, the 912 was considered a consolation prize — a slow Porsche for people who couldn’t afford a classic 911. But since time has been good to any vintage Porsche, the 912 is finally starting to get the respect it deserves.
Doesn’t that describe the 914?
