The vehicle in detail

The appearance group equipment includes pile carpet, center console, center armrest with storage compartment, and a vinyl-covered roll bar. The undercarriage is solid and rust-free. Optional 5.5” x 15” light alloy wheels are fitted to 185 65 15” tires.

Mechanically powered by a 2.0L flat-four engine that runs very well paired with a manual 5-speed transmission and four-wheel disc brakes. An excellent opportunity to acquire a 914 finished in a very rare color that runs and drives as it should.

History

By the late 1960s, inflation and currency issues had forced Porsche so far upmarket (above the magic $10,000 mark for a highly optioned 911S) that they became desperate for a new four-cylinder entry-level car. The 912 was ripe for replacement, as it could no longer be produced cheaply enough to qualify as entry-level, and the new Datsun 240Z had made a mockery of it on a performance level. The answer was a collaboration with Volkswagen who would sell the new car, dubbed the 914, as a VW-Porsche in Europe. In the U.S. it was known as a Porsche but never carried the Porsche crest on the hood.

Styling was considered odd in the day, but it avoided most of the impracticalities of the mid-engined layout with good outward vision and two large trunks. Performance was modest at first with base VW-derived engines of 1.7 and 1.8 liters. The 2.0-liter cars gave a more sparkling performance and are the most desirable of the four-cylinder models today, and they are cheap to rebuild to boot. Handling is superb with fine brakes and phenomenal steering. Bright period colors suit the 914 well.
