Now available for auction is this 1975 Porsche 914 2.0 finished in Copper Metallic over a black vinyl interior. This late-model 914 carries a fuel-injected 2.0L flat-four engine and features a Comfort Package center console, custom tartan-upholstered seat centers, an upgraded sound system, and a rare factory paint color offered for one year only. It was sold new in Portland, Oregon, where it has remained under the care of three different owners and treated to a major restoration completed in 2017. With approximately 12k miles driven since, this stunning 914 2.0 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Nevada.
This 914 came factory finished in Copper Metallic (L99K), an exceedingly rare color offered on the Porsche 914 for the 1975 model year only. This year also saw the introduction of newly designed black rubber safety bumpers with integrated rectangular driving lights in front. Additional equipment includes dual chrome mirrors, a black vinyl-covered roll bar with chrome-plated trim strips, and a removable black roof panel. The car was completely refinished in its original color during the restoration in 2017 and the seller describes the paint to be in very good condition overall with few cosmetic imperfections, detailed images are provided in the gallery. A note from the previous owner states rust repair was performed in the front and rear trunk and that all cavities in the body were sealed with rust inhibitor products. Engman-type boxed reinforcements were welded in the cabin and the passenger-side longitudinal was cut out, re-sleeved, and rebuilt with an exterior clamshell reinforcement. The undercarriage was also stripped, rust treated, and preserved with OEM Wurth undercoating. The 15” 4-lug wheels come dressed in a set of Goodyear Eagle Sport tires retaining approximately 10/32” tread.
Inside, the cabin has been redone worth new grey carpeting, black vinyl upholstery, and custom charcoal tartan seat inserts. The footwells are lined with custom black and orange Coco floormats and contain upgraded Kenwood speakers paired with a modern Alpine Bluetooth radio. The optional Comfort Package center console houses a clock, oil temperature gauge, and voltmeter. The value shown on the odometer is said to reflect the mileage traveled since the restoration, and the seller notes one small hairline crack in the dashboard. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly.
This 914 is equipped with an air-cooled 2.0L fuel-injected flat-four engine (GC002504) which was built by Michael Schantz of Riverdale, California, in 2012 before being shipped to Oregon and paired with the car. The engine uses a 1974 case bored out to a 2,056cc displacement and features an upgraded Webcam camshaft. The rear wheels are driven through a rebuilt 5-speed 901 side-shift manual transmission (HA30105). Notes from the previous owner indicate upgraded stainless steel fuel lines were installed throughout the car along with all new CV joints, a new 911-type master cylinder, and a new spade-type fuse box. The rear brake calipers were rebuilt by PMB Performance and the front calipers were disassembled, white zinc plated, and rebuilt with new OEM seals.
This sale will include owner's manuals, records, an assortment of spare parts, and a clean title. This rare Copper Metallic 1975 example may just be the Porsche 914 you've been searching for, do not miss out.
