Available for auction is this 1972 Porsche 914 finished in its original color of Bahia Red with black vinyl and gray tweed interior. Powered by an upgraded 2.0L flat-four engine featuring dual Weber carburetors, this 914 was acquired by its seller out of Arizona in March 2020 and has since undergone rigorous maintenance including engine and braking system service, new tires, an upgraded Bluetooth sound system, and more.
This 914 is finished in its factory-specified color of Bahia Red and rides on 15” Fuchs wheels with Federal Super Steel 657 A/S tires. Black sail panel covers are included with the factory Appearance Package and upgraded LED running lights and brake lights have been installed for improved visibility. A rear window defroster is equipped as a rare factory option. The car was previously refinished and the seller has replaced the hood, rear decklid, and rear floor pan along with some rust repair and reconditioning of the paint. All rubber seals and lenses have also been replaced and the exterior is described to be in good condition with some minor imperfections. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The interior is finished in black vinyl with gray tweed inserts on the seats and door panels. The dashboard and carpeting have been replaced, the instruments have been refurbished, and the sound system has been upgraded with a Bluetooth radio paired with speakers under the seats. All gauges, climate controls, wipers, and warning lights are functional although the seller notes the interior dome light does not turn on when the driver’s door is opened and the window defroster is currently inoperable.
The original engine has been swapped for an upgraded 2.0L flat-four equipped with dual Weber carburetors and a new exhaust, sending power to the rear wheels by way of a 5-Speed manual transmission. Maintenance performed under the current ownership since 2020 includes installation of new spark plugs, a new distributor, battery, Pertronix Ignitor II electronic ignition, heater hoses, filters, fluids, brake pads, rotors, and rebuilt calipers.
This sale will include a clean title, spare tire, restored original jack, owner’s manual, two keys, and all receipts from the seller’s ownership.
