Default New owner of a 1967 912

I recently purchased a 1967 Porsche 912 from a freind (Jerry McAbee). His car has been well documented on Pelican as his multi year restoration (rust removal & engine rebuild). He had taken the car to its mechanical completion and has now started on a new project (68 912). I saw this car as a great mechanical platform to create my own “outlaw”. Here are some photos of what I have done cosmetically. ( A complete interior change from semi stock to my vision. RS carpet kit and door panels w/rear seat delete, sport seats, Momo Prototipo steering wheel, side decals, lowered the stance on the car, detailed the engine by hiding most of the wiring with looms and ties to give it a clean look) I am very happy with the progress so far and plan on having the front and rear bumpers wrapped in satin black to continue the two tone theme.

Future Mods may be black steel wheels and a new paint job. Now side by side with my 95 993. I appreciate the opportunity to share with you guys. She is a driver and will be driven regularly. RRC




67 912 added body decals and lowered the stance and detailed the entire car.


RS door panels


Momo Prototipo steering wheel


Corbeau sport seats


RS carpet kit rear seat delete


Engine rebuild by Competition Engineering and upgraded to 100hp (dyno)

Good looking 912. I picked up a 68 a few months back to go along with my 95 993.

Thanks for the feedback guys! My 993 is complete and this new car has given me something to wrench on and do a little cosmetic transformation with all the modifications. The guy I bought her from (Jerry) really likes all the changes I have made to the car, which is pretty cool. I have had a good time playing. RC

Took my red 993 and blue 912 to Cars & Coffee Sunday. My daughter drove her white Cayman. Cool day for a cruise.
