Now available for auction is this 1975 Porsche 914 1.8 finished in Nepal Orange over a black leatherette interior. Among the final iterations of the Porsche 914, this 1975 example carries a fuel-injected flat-four engine and sports late-model rubber safety bumpers. Acquired by the current caretaker from its second owner out of San Diego in 2003, this 914 has been garage-kept and sparingly driver ever since and is now being offered for auction out of Southern Florida.
This 914 came factory finished in Nepal Orange, a 914-specific color that replaced the more common shade of Signal Orange for the final two years of production. Black Porsche side graphics have been applied along with premium ceramic window tint. The seller notes that the entire car was refinished in its original color following a minor side-swipe accident about 13 years ago. The original windshield has been retained and the battery tray has been replaced as a precautionary measure, additional images are provided in the gallery. The 15” Fuchs wheels feature colored Porsche center crests and come dressed in a set of Yokohama tires.
The cabin is upholstered in black leatherette and features an upgraded MOMO steering wheel and leather shift knob. A battery kill switch has been installed and an electric trunk latch has been integrated which is operated by a button hidden beneath the dashboard. A carpet cover has been placed over the dashboard along with an orange-accented 914-logo floormat in the passenger footwell. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly including the front fog lights.
This 914 is equipped with an air-cooled fuel-injected 1.8L flat-four engine which produced as much as 76 HP and 100 lb.-ft of torque when new. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual gearbox. The car has been driven very sparingly throughout the current ownership and the seller notes the fuel injection system to be fully intact and in great working order.
Accompanied by a clean title, this nicely presented driver-grade 914 is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new owner.
