This 1972 Porsche 914 has been customized and upgraded including a bored and stroked 2.3-liter engine featuring dual Weber 44 carburetors, a SCAT Stage 2 camshaft, a lightweight flywheel, a new racing exhaust, and much more. It comes finished in white and is modified with custom LED lighting, a 914/6 rear valence, Maxilite Fuchs wheels, aftermarket interior gauges, and a Retrosound Bluetooth audio system. The car had reportedly been under the care of the same owner for 20 years before it was sold to the seller’s friend about three years ago and eventually acquired by the seller in 2022. This modified 914 has undergone extensive recent service and is now being offered for auction out of California.
This 914 is said to have been previously refinished in white from its original green color and was wrapped in removable matte white vinyl less than a year ago. It has been customized with new yellow-tinted fog lamps, a 914/6 lower rear valence, custom dual exhaust pipes, aftermarket LED lights, and 15” Maxilite Fuchs alloy wheels dressed in new Nitto NT05 tires. Other features include chrome bumpers, a removable black roof panel, black mirror covers, pop-up headlamps, and a custom “2.3” badge on the rear end. The seller notes a small dent is present on the chrome front bumper, the fenders have been rolled to accommodate larger tires, a new front windshield has been installed, clear UV protection film has been applied to the front window, and 50% ceramic tint has been applied to the side & rear windows. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The black vinyl interior features an updated factory center console gauge cluster which houses gauges for oil temperature, oil pressure, and dual mass airflow meters. All interior lighting has been converted to LEDs, a modern Retrosound Bluetooth stereo has been installed, and a USB-C charging cable is integrated into the center console. The seller notes an extra gauge console will be included in the sale, the HVAC system has been completely rebuilt, and all gauges, electronics, and accessories remain fully functional.
This 914 is equipped with an upgraded 914 2.0 flat-four engine that has been bored and stroked to a 2.3-liter displacement featuring AA 96mm pistons, an AA 78mm crankshaft, H-beam 5.518” connecting rods, and a SCAT Stage 2 camshaft. The engine also includes dual Weber 44 carburetors, a lightweight flywheel (13 lbs.), a heavy-duty oil pump, an external oil cooler with a cooling fan controller, an extended oil pan, a new dual exhaust system, new mounts, and new seals throughout. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission with an upgraded Stage 1 clutch. The suspension has been overhauled, 5-lug wheel hubs have been installed, and the braking system includes a new master cylinder, new calipers, and new Hawk racing brake pads. The seller adds that the engine was rebuilt with all new parts in 2020 and approximately 8k miles have been driven since.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a car cover, a removable tow hook, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “An impressively fast and reliable 1972 Porsche 914. Everything has been restored to working order and this car is one of the most fun-driving vehicles ever made. A maximum HP build utilizing a factory power plant to maintain the perfect weight and engine balance of the mid-engine Porsche. Built to drive spirited; this car is massively fun and safe to drive in the canyons, although I will say shifting takes some getting used to (it likes rev-matching best). It has great torque and stays the coolest of all my race cars when pushed hard. Great road feedback and tuned for slight understeer at extremes. Oversteer correction is very stable, so this is a truly marvelous car to drive near the limit. No rust anywhere (clean hell hole) and everything has been gone through so that it is a perfectly operating Porsche. It's important to note that this is a purpose-built car: it is not a perfect showpiece. It's meant to be driven every day and was not restored to only go to car shows. It is meant to be driven.”
