The 1967 Porsche 912, sometimes teasingly called the “4-cylinder 911,” is the focus of autoblogPetrolicious‘s latest video. Antoine Gaslais, a contemporary artist, tells the story of how he bought his 912 “as a mistake.” Wanting a classic, original car, he won an auction on the 912 and ended up with a car that didn’t run. Thankfully, a few fixes down the line was all it needed, and has been running beautifully for the past year and a half.
With its classic, vintage look, Antoine’s 1967 Porsche 912 seems perfect for an artist like him. He particularly loves its Bahama Yellow color, which he says “makes people smile” wherever he goes. Watch this beauty, and the story behind it, in the video below.
