A joint development between Porsche and Volkswagen, the 914 was offered as Porsche’s entry-level sports car featuring a mid-mounted air-cooled engine and distinctive Targa bodywork built by Karmann. This 1971 Porsche 914 came factory-finished in Bahia Red over black leatherette upholstery and features optional fog lights, a center armrest console, and a 5-speed manual transaxle. It was acquired by the seller about a year ago after it had been sitting idle for some time and has since been made roadworthy with a full service including new ignition components, rebuilt brakes, a fuel pump, new tires, and more. This classic Porsche 914 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This 914 was previously refinished in its original color of Bahia Red (13) and features optional front fog lights, chrome bumpers, dual chrome tailpipes, a polished driver’s side mirror, a fender-mounted antenna, black vinyl sail panel covers, and a removable Targa roof panel. It rides on OEM 15” Baby Fuchs wheels with newly mounted Petlas Elegant PT3II tires. A matching spare wheel is included. The seller notes some minor imperfections in the paint including chips, fading, and swirl marks. Four holes are also present on the trunk lid from a previously installed spoiler. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The black leatherette interior features a pair of newly reupholstered leather seats with houndstooth cloth centers. An optional center console armrest came equipped from the factory. Other accessories include a Porsche-crested gear knob, pleated basketweave leatherette door panels, manual window rollers, a leather steering wheel cover, a heater, and a sound system with a JVC head unit and speakers. The seller notes some signs of wear on the dashboard and carpeting. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional.
Power comes from a mid-mounted air-cooled 1.7-liter flat-four engine that drives the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle. Under the seller’s care, a service was completed including oil and filter changes, a new fuel filter, ignition coil, spark plugs, a brake master cylinder, and four rebuilt brake calipers.
This sale will include a spare tire, a jack, a Porsche Production Specifications Certificate, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “This is a very nice driver's car, not perfect by any means but a car that is ready to enjoy now while the new owner can make some improvements along the way.”
