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.

This matching numbers Porsche 914 has until recently resided in a US collection. Described by its vendor to be in excellent condition with just ca. 13,000 miles on the odometer, the car received much mechanical work by Porsche specialists. The engine was transformed to 40mm twin carburettors, new tyres were fitted to the Fuchs wheels, a sports steering wheel and an Ansa sport exhaust system were also added. This beautiful luxury version with chrome bumpers already passed the German TÜV (January 2018) to obtain historic number plates and the lucky new owner can obtain fresh German historic paperwork upon registration.
