    Hi,

    It is possible to connect 2 external displays to a Mid 2012 Macbook Pro (Just one thunderbolt port)

    Via HDMI or VGA, don't care really.

    Thanks in advice!

    This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560x1600 via Thunderbolt and a single display up to 1920x1200 via HDMI.

    Perfect, but how can I connect both. Is there any Thunderbolt adaptor with 2 ports?

    Only by the book way to connect two external monitors on that machine is two Thunderbolt Displays by daisy chaining them.

    That machine has only one video out connector and that is Thunderbolt port.
    That port can be used as Mini DisplayPort or converted to DisplayPort, HDMI, VGA, DVI or DualLink DVI.

    You cannot connect two HDMI / DVI / DisplayPort / VGA monitors on that machine or any combination of them.
