GT Porsche  |  February 2017 

The obsession with matching numbers is widely accepted to have grown to mainstream prominence through the world of classic Ferraris. Today, for many people, the concept plays an important part in a classic car’s provenance. Keeping a classic unified with its original factory-fitted engine and gearbox is seen as vital if it is to be regarded by the establishment as bonafide and realise a higher monetary worth. When it comes to rare and historically important cars this is arguably more understandable.

This month’s cover car takes a step back from all this. The latest restoration project to emerge from Canford Classics started life as a 912 but has since been reworked in every way to the tune of £85,000. That might sound like a lot of money but when you’re talking about the full restoration of a period Porsche, it’s not. Although it still appears totally in keeping with its original period, and much of the car is indeed true to its 1960s roots, the restoration has not been bound by them. The result is a simplistic yet utterly beautiful car, one that is wholly satisfying to admire and drive.
