The Porsche 914 was a joint development between Porsche and Volkswagen and was the new Porsche entry-level model as of the model year 1970. The two-seater, also known as the „VW Porsche“, was a mid-engine Sports Car. Striking design features included the very long wheelbase for the vehicle length, short overhangs, the removable roof center panel made from glass-fiber-reinforced plastic as well as the wide safety bar. The 914 also featured pop-up headlights. At the time of its launch, the 914 was available with two engines. 914: 1.7-liter flat-four engine with 80 hp from Volkswagen. 914/6: 2.0-liter flat-six engine with 110 hp from the Porsche 911 T. These were followed by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 100 hp based on the 1.7-liter engine in the model year 1973 and a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine with 85 hp in the model year 1974.
