Porsche 912 Engine 1
Porsche 912 Engine


Over the years I collected enough perfect parts for two high end 912 engines. I no longer need this engine as it was intended to be a spare for my car which already has a perfect engine. The engine is not built yet but is in the process. If you would be interested in purchasing this engine and have it built to suit your car then please email us. The engine plan is the following, a hot street engine:

  • 1968 Porsche 912 case STD. BLANK front cover with no serial numbers, replacement part, full flowed oil system

This engine is all German parts, all factory parts where possible. All parts are Standard in size and very good to perfect condition. If you have priced the cost of correctly rebuilding a improved power 912 engine then you will know that this is a good deal for what you are getting. This is a turn key engine that will bolt right into any early 912 and provide years of great use. Installation available and a 6000 mile warranty is included. No core required. Contact me if you need an engine set up for a 356. The engine pictured is just a sample, the actual engine for sale is not pictured yet.
