I have a question regarding the authenticity of a 912 Carrera engine. I have run across an engine that the sellers says is from a 912 Carrera. I have been unable to get any information that says there was a Carrera 912 produced. Was there ever a Carrera model of the 912? Was the engine different that the standard 912 engine, more desirable?
He thinks it is a premium engine with more performance, I have no clue.
Please advise...
Thanks

He made that up, maybe unwittingly.

Wasn't the 912 Carrera called a 911?

I had a 912 engine in my Carrera for a couple of years while I worked on the 4-cam. Does that make it a 912 Carrera?

A Carrera engine in a 912 is a kid's idea.......

Please, put a Porsche engine type "912" in a 912................... and you'll have more fun!

In 1970 I had a 66 912 with a 904 Carrera engine in it originally built by racer Miles Gupton,
great car. One of several four cam Porsches that I've had the pleasure of owning.
