This 1971 Porsche 914 has undergone a custom build showcasing a rebuilt Yamaha 3.0-liter V6 DOHC engine from a Ford Taurus SHO. It comes equipped with the SHO’s 5-speed manual transmission and disc brakes along with a custom center console, sound system, dual cameras, a widebody kit, and a custom engine cover. The only known 914 to have undergone this complex and detailed engine swap, this SHO-powered Porsche is now being offered for auction out of Florida.

This 914 has been refinished in black and fitted with a widebody kit including fender flares, bumpers, and rockers. The engine lid has been customized for an exposed view of the mid-mounted SHO V6. Other details include painted bumpers, a body-colored removable roof panel, a driver’s side mirror, pop-up headlamps, a mesh rear bumper grille, dual center-mounted tailpipes, and aftermarket silver 15” Sport Edition F2 wheels with new Toyo Proxes R1R tires mounted in 2023.

The black interior includes refurbished factory bucket seats, racing harnesses, a flat-bottom three-spoke steering wheel, a custom center console, and switches for the ignition, lights, and camera system. The vehicle also features a DVD head unit with navigation, an MP3 player, front speakers, custom auxiliary gauges, an Auto Meter Sport-Comp tachometer, and a digital speedometer. The seller indicates the car’s mileage was reset upon installation of the rebuilt engine.

Built by Yamaha for the Ford Taurus Super High Output (SHO) model, the 3.0-liter SHO V6 is an aluminum head 24-valve DOHC engine with a variable length intake manifold, a 7,000 rpm redline, and a factory-rated output of 220 HP and 200 lb.-ft of torque. The V6 in this 914 was sourced from a 1990 Ford Taurus SHO along with its 5-speed MTX-IV manual transmission and four-wheel disc brake system. The seller indicates the engine was completely rebuilt with new gaskets and seals along with a new clutch, flywheel, and throw-out bearing for the transmission.

This sale will include a spare tire and a clean title.


The seller would like you to know: “This is a one-of-one custom build. Countless hours have gone into making this vehicle what it is today. The car gathers a lot of attention and thumbs up when driving. Parked in a Lamborghini row at cars and coffee this car gathered more attention than the Lamborghini cars. I truly hope this car finds a great owner who appreciates what it takes to even create something such as this. The ability to bring a vision to reality on a project that is a one of a kind.”
