The 914 was first shown at the Frankfurt Auto show in September 1969, and was a joint project between Porsche and Volkswagen. Porsche would get its budget sports car in the 914-4, which utilized many VW parts to reduce development and production costs, while VW would sell the 914-4 as a range-topping two-seater. VW pulled out of the arrangement at the last minute, yet Porsche decided to continue and produce the mid-engined 914-4. Cars started to appear here in the states in January 1970. Despite its overall simplicity, the 914 had a couple of features that were considered cutting edge at the time: electronic fuel injection in a world dominated by carburetors, and a mid-engined layout. 1973 was a big turning point for the 914. A 96-hp 2.0-liter engine was introduced, the shift linkage was vastly improved with the “side shifter” transmission linkage, and new 5.5-inch wide forged Fuchs alloy wheels were now offered alongside Mahle cast aluminum wheels of the same size. Standard-trim bumpers were changed from body color to a matt-black finish.

This example is part of a predominant Orange County collection for the last 6 plus years. This matching numbers car has approximately 104,000  miles and prior to the current owner had undergone a bolt off restoration. Repainted white over black, rust-free, and with a full engine rebuild. This is by far the cleanest 914 on the market. The car represents the last year of production for the 2.0 Litre 914 and includes all of the well-known options including Appearance Package, Fuchs alloys, and Center console with gauges.

C-ya, I am the owner of the other car you are bidding on and would consider a joint sale of both and would be aggressive to make a deal.

Been following this car and really like it. Seller would you entertain a lower BIN for a cash deal? Looking at another car on the site but really like this one.

Enzo218, nice tag btw, this did sell at Mecum I believe at their Monterey auction about 10 years ago. I looked at this car and almost bought it when they were much cheaper. It was a complete nut and bold restoration.

Crazy how the prices of both the 914-6 and the later 4’s are going up and up.

I remember this car at one of the Monterey auctions a few years back and the restoration was perfect.

Your site is killing me right now with all these cool cars. Still bidding on the Hellcat but love this too.

These are great little cars and are finally getting appreciated. The one shortfall was the shift linkage in the early cars and the later cars have the better and much easier shifting. Will be watching this one, not a buyer but someone that appreciates them.

Nice looking 914 although I would prefer the 916-6 but this should do well.

We have confirmed that the miles are 104,000 and not 4,000. That said, prior to the owner buying this car there was a complete restoration on a rust and accident free car. This is one of the nicest 914’s on the market.

Usually not a fan of the 914’s but this is a very nice example. Is this really only 4,000 miles?

These car have never gotten any love and the 914-6 are finally starting to see the appreciation they deserve. This car looks immaculate and should do well. GLWTA
