Transformation Thursday February 15, 2018

Porsche Southpoint Master Technician Kevin Humphries &  Brand Ambassador Tom Roos purchased a 1967 Porsche 912 Targa soft window to transform into a beautiful rebuild.  They found this gem in California and had it transported back to North Carolina.  

They chose this model because it is a rare find only 1 of 88 known to exist.  The goal of this remodel/rebuild is to restore this 912 as close to its original glory as possible and to make it more than just a showpiece, it will be a functional driving Porsche.  

 

The original color for this Porsche was ivory with black interior and it was outfitted with chrome wheels.  Right now, it is currently stripped of the color, the interior and all the parts, and is just a shell.  This shell will be transported to the body shop soon where it will be painted, while Kevin works on assembling an engine.  The engine that will be mounted in the 912 is not the original, but it is one that was made exactly one month after the one produced in the in the original 912 model, so it is as close to the original engine as possible.

 

 

The Porsche Club was given a vote on the color palette and they voted to use another factory color available in 1967, a light green titled Leaf.  They will keep the interior black and put the chrome wheels to restore it to its former beauty.  

 

The goal for completion is July 4th or the first Saturday in July so it will be on display for our July 2018 First Saturday at Porsche.  Once it is finished and in the showroom, it will be available for you to purchase, so if you’ve been on the hunt for a rare Porsche, make sure you follow the progress of this beautiful transformation.
