DT: 1970 Porsche 914-6

Up for auction is this 1970 Porsche 914-6 presented in Tangerine over a performance-oriented black leatherette interior.  Highlighting an upgraded 2.7 L flat-six engine, exciting performance modifications and some tasteful exterior revisions, this driver’s grade 914 makes the perfect street or track car for any Porsche enthusiast. Having undergone over $21k worth of recent service at Patrick Motorsports as well as an engine rebuild carried out 26k miles ago, this 914 is now being offered in excellent driving by its seller in Arizona.

This 914 is said to have been professionally refinished in its factory specified color of Tangerine under previous ownership.  Some road-going wear has been noted on the front end, otherwise the paint is said to be in great shape (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  The body is reported to be seam welded from the jack points back and the rear shock tower brace has also been welded in.  Modification include fiberglass front and rear bumpers, fiberglass rocker panels and a 914 GT rear decklid.  15x6” Fuchs wheels are equipped which come dressed in new Pirelli P 7 tires.

The black leatherette interior is noted to be in good condition with modifications including a Koenig Racing driver’s seat, safety harnesses and a 14” Racemark steering wheel as well as added gauges for oil pressure and amperage.  All gauges and accessories are stated to be fully functional with the exception of the added amperage gauge.

Power comes from a 1973-sourced 2.7 L flat-six engine which is mated to a 5-speed 901 side shifter transmission.  All new transmission components have been installed and a recent major service was performed at Patrick Motorsports at a cost of over $21k which included all new brake lines/hoses, case cone seal, carburetor rebuild, exhaust work, oil change, valve adjustment, wires, plugs, Pertronix ignition module, seam repair and a motor leak down test which shows less than 1% in all 6 cylinders. This 914 is said to be in excellent running order and accompanied by a vast collection of service records.  Performance upgrades have also been installed including the following:

  • Thermostatically Controlled Oil Cooler (front)
  • Garrettson G-20 Cams
  • Euro Carrera Pistons and Liners
  • 40 MM Weber Carburetors
  • New Clutch/Pressure Plate and Flywheel

  • Weltmeister Chassis Stiffener Kit
  • Weltmeister Trailing Arm Stiffener Kit
  • Adjustable Bilstein Shocks
  • 19mm Adjustable Front Sway Bar
  • 140 Lb. Rear Springs
  • Turbo Tie Rods

    @racerx44 Yes, tried to provide them to the site but never made it on due to issues, probably mine, file size to big, tried to reduce size but quality was terrible. The bottom line here is if I can't get my reserve I plan to keep the car, put 7s and Avons on it and go to PCA track events. Love the car and it is 100% sorted out. Thanks for your interest.

    Do you have driving or start up videos? Perhaps a walk around then a cold start?

    @csawrsr Never bothered to obtain a COA. If you look at the pictures you will see that I have identified the VIN on the body in the frunk, the window and have pics of the trunk stamping. There are also pics of the original owners manual and maintenance books, plus a tremendous amount of maintenance invoices. The car is definitely "NOT" a clone.

    Hello maybe I missed it but do you have a COA or is this a clone 914-6

  • robjohnson52 (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @Slim_Chance Yes, send me your email address and I'll send them. There is an oval open area in front of the spare tire pan that the air exits from. The oil lines run along the passenger side behind the valance. There is also a picture in the gallery showing the top of it in the spare tire well. Thanks, Rob

    Any shots of the front cooler ducting from the underside and oil line routing?

    @Slim_Chance The patch was done many, many years ago. The car was purpose built in the 70s to be a PCA street legal track car and was used as such. I commissioned Patrick to go through the car to make it as mechanically sound as possible leaving all of the period components alone. I did not have them deal with the small patch at that time. James (Patrick) commented that this car is one of most solid, original metal, never hit cars he had seen. If you are lucky enough to buy the car I will have that "Amateurish" patch fixed for you. Happy bidding

    Cannot understand why the amateur welding "repair" on the panel on the passenger side pan forward of the engine wasn't addressed. Patrick could have knocked that out blind folded. Otherwise a nice looking basis for a hot rod. GLWA.

    @Zeekojr Sorry for not being more clear. The seat is adjustable on the seat track and it has a built in tilt device.

    Thanks, Rob

  • robjohnson52 (seller) 1 week, 5 daysago

    @Zeekojr Thanks for looking. The seat can actually go back a ways further as I have it tilted way back for the way I like to drive. I am 5'9 and am a little stretched out leg wise. I do not have the stock seat.

  • Zeekojr 1 week, 5 daysago

    Gorgeous, and very tempting. Anxious to see where this ends up. GLWTA!

    By the way, that driver's seat has a fixed back, and seems to be as far back as it can go, yet looks quite close to the steering wheel. Any idea whether this setup would allow a 6'2" driver to fit? Is the factory seat available still?
