Celebrated by enthusiasts as a standout year for Porsche's 914, the 1973 edition marked the debut of a 2.0L flat-four engine alongside the introduction of the 914/12's innovative "side-shift" 5-speed manual transmission. Initially sold at Bob Hagestad Porsche-Audi of Lakewood, Colorado, this 1973 Porsche 914 was ordered in Alaska Blue Metallic over black vinyl upholstery and is said to have undergone a complete refinish and engine rebuild. Upgraded with dual Weber carburetors, K&N air filters, and a front oil cooler, this 914 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This example is said to have been refinished in its factory-specified shade of Alaska Blue Metallic (L96B). Details include pop-up headlights, fog lights, a black removable Targa top, polished dual side mirrors, and matching trim & bumpers. It rides on 15” Fuchs alloy wheels dressed in Vredestein tires from 2017. The seller adds that LED headlight bulbs have been fitted and reports some paint imperfections and signs of road wear. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is appointed with black vinyl upholstery and presents two-way adjustable seats, a four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, and VDO instrumentation. The seat cushions have been repaired with black tape and mismatched carpets have been installed. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
Power comes from an air-cooled flat-four engine which is said to have been professionally rebuilt and upgraded with dual Weber carburetors, K&N air filters, and a front oil cooler. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 914/12 “side-shift” 5-speed manual transaxle. The seller adds that this is a numbers-matching example and extensive service documentation will accompany the sale.
This sale will include a clean tile and service documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “Honest rust-free California 914 2.0. Rare color. Exceptionally clean and well maintained.”
