This 1971 Porsche 914 1.7 is finished in Signal Orange and is said to have spent its life in Southern California. It was refinished in 2007 and features aftermarket bumpers, a custom snakeskin black vinyl interior, a three-spoke MOMO Veloce steering wheel, a Kicker subwoofer and amplifier, a Sony head unit, an aftermarket muffler, and a 5-speed manual transaxle. This 914 is now being offered for auction out of California.

This 914 is said to have been refinished in the period-correct color of Signal Orange in 2007 along with the installation of custom body-colored bumpers with integrated front fog lights. Equipment includes a removable black roof panel, pop-up headlamps, a Porsche-logo tail panel reflector, a polished exhaust outlet, dual body-colored mirrors, chrome door handles, black lower rocker panels, and 15” Empi Fuchs-style wheels. Some cosmetic imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery.

Inside, this 914 features a black vinyl interior with custom snakeskin print inserts on the seat centers, dashboard, and center console. A three-spoke MOMO Veloce steering wheel has been installed along with a black leather gear knob. The sound system includes a Sony head unit paired with Audiobahn speakers, a Kicker subwoofer, and a trunk-mounted Kicker amplifier. Other accessories include three-point seatbelts, a glovebox, manual window cranks, a heater, and analog VDO instrument gauges.

Power comes from an air-cooled and fuel-injected 1.7-liter flat-four engine that drives the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transaxle. An aftermarket exhaust muffler has been fitted along with a Spectre performance air filter. The seller indicates that the car has been regularly driven and routinely serviced including new fluids in July 2023.

This sale will include an owner’s manual, some documentation, a spare tire, and a clean title.

The seller would like you to know: “Meet Motor Trend -Import Car of the Year 1970- & Porsche's solution to replace the aging 912 back then; 914 came to the rescue with great mastery. Cool features, like both cargo areas, a trunk to accommodate Targa top fitting like a glove, the frunk, and the engine at the right location. Perfect balance. Popup Lights. Sharing lots of Parts with VW. Super Easy to Maintain and to Enjoy.  And the Dogleg Shifter! Ticks Lots of Boxes!!!!

    @MCShack Thanks for the compliments. Sure. Wilco. Will do.

  • MCShack (registered bidder) 7 months, 1 weekago

    @AlexBert Can you provide some pictures of the rear trunk? It would be nice to see it with the carpet and padding in place and with it removed. The best would be close pictures of all 4 corners with carpet and padding removed and some overall pics from different angles. Please get a close-up picture of the Karmann body number (not same as the VIN) if a number is still stamped into the rear trunk floor just under the passenger side taillight assembly or perhaps more towards the center just right of the rear trunk lock location. In the left center of pic #136, it appears as if the engine number is visible stamped into the top of the engine casing at about a 45-degree angle to the engine just below the big spring under the air breather. Please provide a close-up of this number or at least post it here if at all possible. Thank you in advance and Good Luck With The Auction!

    @Vietnam6871 Good Eyes. After double check: it is a 1.7 indeed. Will be rectified. Thanks. Teamwork does the Dreamwork.

    The original engine was 1.7 liter but there is no mention as to how it became 1.8.
