Default FS: 1976 Porsche 912E, Minerva Blue w/ Cashmere Beige Leather

Hi, all.

I just moved back inside the Beltway after three years in the Shenandoah Valley. I no longer have a garage, so I need to let go of my '76 912E. If you're not familiar, the 912E was a one-year-only model introduced in the U.S. market to fill the gap between the end of the 914 run and the beginning of the 924. It's the 911 body with the same 2 liter type 4 engine as the later 914 cars. It runs L-Jet fuel injection. Only 2099 were built.

The photo sharing feature on these boards can be wonky, so I'm posting pictures on Google Drive instead: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/f...CMmvBYrao_kgAX

This is an exceptional example of the 912E. It has factory sunroof, power windows, and AC. (I have removed the AC compressor, but it's included in the sale.) It also has H1 headlights, which are a step above the H4 lights. H1 lights frequently sell online for $1200.00-$1500.00.

I believe I am the fourth owner. The first owner is unknown. The second owner was in Charlottesville, Virginia. He bought the car sometime in the 80s and held it for roughly 30 years. The third owner was a collector who purchased it in 2017 to restore. I bought the car from the third owner in 2018 after he decided to focus on a 72 911 instead. He did a bare metal respray in Minerva blue in 2017 and he began installing a new cashmere beige leather interior. I finished everything else.

Very nearly everything has been done on this car, and it has not been driven since the the restoration began. I've pasted at the bottom of this post a list of everything that has been done to the car since the restoration began in 2017. As you'll see, it's pretty extensive. It would be difficult to find a better overall example of a 912E for sale anywhere.
The only weakness the car has is that it has the typical rust in the battery tray area. (Not sure why the PO didn't deal with this when he ad the car painted.) The rust will need to be corrected eventually, but it's not urgent. That fix is $500-$700 in parts, plus 30-40 hours of labor. You could also replace the original front clip with a good used one $200-$300 plus labor.

Hagerty values 912E cars with sunroofs as follows:

Concours: $53,550
Excellent:$39,795
Good:$26,250
Fair:$15,750

The battery tray rust is the only thing keeping this car out of the excellent category for valuation purposes. It is otherwise exceptional.

I'm looking for $35,000, with some room for negotiation.

As of this writing, July 2, the car is still with my mechanic in Waynesboro. It will be delivered to my NOVA mechanic on July 8.

Happy to answer any questions you may have.

Ian

Test Results


Compression Test – Compression is Good

Cold engine at 1500 ft. elevation 3/10/19:
Cylinder 1 – 135 0.96 = 140.625 at sea level
Cylinder 2 – 140 0.96 = 145.833 at sea level
Cylinder 3 – 135 0.96 = 140.625 at sea level
Cylinder 4 – 135 0.96 = 140.625 at sea level

Fuel Pressure Test – Fuel Pressure at idle is Good

Fuel pressure measures 35 psi at fuel rail. Measurement taken with ignition on, engine off, fuel pressure regulator vacuum hose removed, and AFM door held open with screwdriver. Measures ~29 psi at idle with vacuum hose attached.

Aux Air Regulator Test – Aux Air Reg is Good

Test ohms on aux air regulator. Should be 30 ohms when engine is cold. – checked 3/25. Measures exactly 30 ohms. Visually inspect aux air regulator when engine is cold and off. Should be open. – checked 2/22. Aperture is open with engine cold. Apply 12 v to aux air regulator. This should slowly close the opening. – Tested 3/25. Applied 9 volts rather than 12, and regulator did close slowly. Regulator is OK.

Cold Start Valve Test – Valve is Good

Test cold start valve by removing it, place it in a bag, and start engine while it’s cold. Should provide fuel for a max of 20 seconds. – Tested 2/25. It provided fuel for several seconds. Perhaps 30-45 ML worth. Check ohms on cold start valve. Should be about 4 ohms. – checked 3/25 after removing it from the car. Measured exactly 4 ohms. Valve is OK.

Thermo Time Switch Test – Switch is Good

Test ohms on thermo time switch when engine is cold. Should read 25-40 ohms if temperature is below 86 degrees Fahrenheit. (per 912e Service Information document). – Tested 3/25. Reads 32-33 ohms. Switch is OK.

Throttle Valve Switch Test – Switch is Good

Take off cover. Contacts should not touch when idling. Should touch when revving. Contacts should measure zero ohms with throttle wide open. – checked 2/22. Contacts were not touching in idle position. Did touch when throttle moved to full open position. Measured zero ohms when throttle was open. Switch is OK.

Temp Sensor II Test -- Replaced

Check ohms on temp sensor ii. Should be 2-3k ohms at room temp. Around 5-6K if temperature is in the 30s-40s. This can be measured at the ECU plug by testing terminals 13 and 17. -- Function unknown. Replaced temp sensor ii 3/5/19

Fuel Pressure Regulator – Regulator is Good

Apply compressed air to inlet side. Without vacuum, it should be around 36 psi. It should be lower when vacuum is applied. – Tested 3/25. It measured 35-37 psi w/o vacuum and 27-28 psi with vacuum. Fuel pressure regulator is OK.

Double Relay – Relay is Good

Measure resistance at pins 85 & 86b. Should be between 50 and 100 ohms. Measures 61 ohms. Relay is good

No problem:

Do you still have the a/c parts on the engine, and the heater tubes (don't see them on the blower motor)?

Yes. It's all there. I have the original AC compressor as well as the hoses. I took the heater tubes off while I was working on the engine. They're reinstalled now.
This is the only decent engine bay pic I have at the moment, but I can post more when the car arrives in Falls Church on Monday.

I should point out that the rubber air intake tube has also been replaced with a new one since this picture was taken.

Update: car is now with my mechanic in Springfield. He'll do a few small things over the next few days. It should be ready for test drives early next week.
