I don't consider myself a Porsche-phile, but I definitely think I can identify most Porsche models thrown at me. When I saw this "911" outside a drug store, I assumed the obvious.
After I snapped the picture, I walked to the rear hood just to double check. I was surprised to find the "912E" badge.
The Type 923 was a U.S.-spec Porsche sold only in 1976. It was a stop gap measure. It replaced the 914/6 and was to be replaced by the not-quite-ready 924. The 912E had a 2 liter engine derived from the 914 (read VW) and had a 911 body (hence my confusion). According to the 912 Registry, the 2,099th (and final) 912E was the last air-cooled four cylinder Porsche ever made. Also, with its 21 gallon fuel tank and fuel efficient engine, it had the longest range of any Porsche.
We learn something new (or 2 or 3) everyday.
