BaT Auction: Flat Six-Powered 1969 Porsche 912

This post was originally published on this site

The 2.5L flat-six is based on a 2.0L crankcase and features a 90mm bore and a 66mm stroke to achieve the same displacement as the 911 R. It was built by Dave Brown with ported and polished 2.5L race heads, 911S rods, 9.8:1 J&E forged pistons, 906-grind cams, a 964 oil pump, rebuilt triple-choke Weber 40 IDA carburetors, and much more as shown on the build sheet included in the gallery below.

The engine can be seen starting and running in the video above. A refurbished 915 5-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels. The seller states that all systems were gone through during the build, including new brake components, wiring, fuel lines, and oil lines. Much of the work was completed by Exclusive Motorwerks in Denver, North Carolina, and an invoice for $27k is shown in the gallery.

Footage of a recent dynamometer run can be viewed above, though power figures are not stated.
