Description

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. First seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 914/4 used the 1,679cc, four-cylinder. 914’s 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 always had reputation for excellent handling, this highly original example is no exception. Having never been restored, this all original panel matching numbers 914 comes from the dry states of California where it has remained unmolested since 1971.

Complete with its COA, and with a recent MoT and fluid and filter change you would struggle to find a more original 914.
