This 1973 Porsche 914 has been restored as a 914-6 GT tribute at a cost of over $100k, featuring a repaint in its original rare finish of Marathon Blue, a rebuilt 3.2L Carrera motor built by Porsche specialist Greg Fordahl, a 915 5-speed manual transmission with a Quaife limited-slip differential, Boxster brake calipers over Carrera discs, GT-style composite flairs and rockers, and an upgraded suspension with Von and Koni shocks, Hypercoil springs, an Elephant Racing custom bump steer kit, quick change camber plates, adjustable spring perches, a custom front anti-roll bar, all new bushings, and more. Said to have been professionally built using only the best components available, this 914-6 GT tribute is now being offered at auction by the seller based out of Massachusetts.
The exterior is finished in the rarely-seen color of Marathon Blue (L96M), which was repainted around 5 years ago, with removable Gulf Orange vinyl striping. A set of 914-6 GT-style composite fender flares and rockers were added during the refinish, along with chassis and trailing arm stiffening kits. Other equipment includes a removable black targa top panel, a correct 914-6 GT engine panel, front and rear polished bumper trim, a paint-matched front chin spoiler, yellow fog lights, and pop-up headlights. The seller notes some minor nicks in the paint, detailed images are provided in the gallery. The polished 16” Fuchs-style wheels wear Porsche center caps and are mounted with Hankook Ventus V2 tires that were said to have been installed in 2020.
The interior is upholstered in black vinyl and features two lightweight Ultra Shield seats with perforated centers and 5-point Simpson racing harnesses attached to a roll bar. Details include a MOMO steering wheel with a Gulf horn button and a quick disconnect hub, custom floormats with red 914-6 script and binding, a Rennshift shifter, aluminum pedals, and a new carpet kit and center console. The seller reports some cracking on the dashboard and a small hole in the driver’s seat.
This 914 is powered by a 3.2L Carrera engine, which was built by Porsche specialist Greg Fordahl. It has been fitted with 964 Web cams, ARP rod bolts, a K&N air filter, a 60-row oil cooler with a 180-degree thermostat, a high-torque starter, and a new fuel pump and lines with AN connections. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 915 manual gearbox with a recently replaced clutch and lightweight flywheel, a Patrick Motorsports Wevo shift kit with shift rod assembly and Wevo tailshift system, and a Quaife limited-slip differential. The suspension has been fitted with all new bushings, 4 new wheel bearings, 22mm front torsion bars with Elephant Racing threaded 17mm spindles, quick-change camber plates, an Elephant Racing custom bump steer kit, Von Level 2 shocks in front, Koni Yellow Sport shocks in the rear, 200 lb.

Stopping power is derived from Boxster brake calipers over Carrera discs, with stainless steel brake lines and a new 22mm master cylinder and brace kit. The seller reports that regular oil changes and fluid exchanges were performed under their ownership.
