According to the Certificate of Authenticity, this 914-6 was originally delivered in Tangerine (23) over Black (11) leatherette upholstery. Optional equipment from the factory includes Finland Equipment, Leather Steering Wheel, White Fog Lights, Tinted Side Glass, and Light Metal Wheels. The earliest known history of this vehicle begins in late 1991 when the previous owner had the 914-6 inspected by Charlie’s Foreign Car Service in Encinitas, California. On September 30, 1992, they were commissioned to perform a complete transmission overhaul totaling $3,922,74. Registration cards from 1995 to present indicate that ownership was transferred to Mr. Sougias sometime in the early 2000s. After two decades of ownership, the 914-6 was purchased by European Collectibles and the seats were upholstered with houndstooth inserts and installed 6” and 7” Fuchs Alloy wheels.
Mechanically, this 914-6 runs perfectly with a numbers-matching 2.0-liter flat-six (type 901/38) producing 110 horsepower, with a smooth-shifting manual 5-speed dogleg transmission (type 901), and four-wheel disc brakes. Complete with service records from 1991-1995, 914-6 owner’s manual, Certificate of Authenticity, and California registration cards from 1995-2018. An excellent opportunity to acquire an excellent 914-6 finished in a desirable color combination.
The 914-6 was produced between 1970 to 1972 and utilized a carbureted version of Porsche’s six-cylinder engine. The suspension was upgraded to better accommodate the increased output of 110 hp. Porsche also produced 32 factory-built, race-prepped versions of the 914-6 GT. Another 455 914-6s were either ordered with the “Competition Option Group” GT package or were fitted with a factory kit.
