Porsche’s strong historical links with Volkswagen were re-affirmed in 1969 with the launch of the Porsche-designed 914, a mid-engined, Targa-top sports car to be assembled by Karmann of Osnabrück. At the time Volkswagen needed a new car to replace the ageing Karmann-Ghia while Porsche was looking for another option to add to its line-up.

Please mention Elferspot when calling Duke of London.

The vehicle in detail

First seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 914/ 4 used the 1, 679cc, four-cylinder, air-cooled motor of the Volkswagen 411 while the 914/ 6 was powered by the Porsche 911T’s 2. 0-litre six. Both cars employed all-independent suspension – a mixture of 911 and VW parts – to which four-wheel disc brakes and a five-speed gearbox were married. The 914’s reputation for excellent handling was somewhat marred by criticism that the four-cylinder version was too slow, though lack of speed was never a shortcoming of the 914/ 6.

The latter was a relatively short-lived model and in 1973 was effectively replaced by the 1, 971cc four-cylinder ‘914 2. 0’, which also featured forged alloy wheels, front and rear anti-roll bars and an improved interior incorporating additional instrumentation.

This excellent example of the final incarnation of the 914 is a very well presented example which has been well cared for throughout its life. The car was first registered on 01/01/74 by Hailey Porsche Audi Incorporated in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The car resided in Tennessee during the 70s before moving to California until 2017 when it was imported into the UK and registered here.

Since arriving in the UK, the engine has been treated to a rebuild with over £6,000 spent, while the interior has also been refurbished. This 914 presents superbly throughout and represents a great opportunity to enter classic Porsche ownership for a very reasonable price.

As with all of our vehicles, we have a digital folder available on request containing more images, walkaround videos, pictures of the underside and scans of the service history. The car can be viewed by appointment at our West London showroom.
