The Porsche 914-6 GT was the race configured version of the 914, with steel boxed fender flares, 911S brakes, extra chassis stiffening, a front oil cooler, and fiberglass bumpers and deck lids. This 1970 Porsche 914-6 was converted into a 914-6 GT tribute by Patrick Motorsports, who stripped the vehicle down to the bare chassis, which was then given an acid bath. Patrick Motorsports designed and built a full chassis reinforcement & half roll cage system with reinforced suspension pick-up points, added hand-crafted steel fenders, and lightweight GT-style bodywork. After a rotisserie paint job, a rebuilt 2.0L engine was fitted, as well as a rebuilt 901 transmission. The suspension and brakes were upgraded as well, and the interior has been stripped and equipped for motorsport. With an engine time of 22 hours and about 6 hours of track use since the completion of the build, this 1970 914-6 GT tribute is now being sold on a title by the seller based out of Texas.
This 914-6 was repainted in Dupont Imron yellow epoxy paint after the chassis was stripped down to bare metal, acid dipped, and prepped with Dupont primer/sealer. The front and rear bumpers were painted in blue and red, and all leading edges are said to have received the application of 3M paint protection film. Under the bodywork, Patrick Motorsports designed a built a custom full chassis reinforcement & half roll cage system with reinforced suspension pick-up points, made from 1.75” outer diameter tubing on the main hoop, and 1.50” outer diameter tubing on the rest of the system, which has all been painted matching yellow. Exterior equipment includes hand-built steel GT-style fender flares, a lightweight GT-style front hood, a GT-style rear deck lid, GT-style bumpers, GT-style rockers, a GT-style front valence, Hella driving lights, a front tow hook, custom dual exhaust outlets, headlights, and tail lights with aluminum housings. The factory 15” Fuchs wheels measured 7” wide in the front and 8” in the rear, and are mounted with new Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires measuring 205/50/15 in the front and 225/50/15 in the rear. Detailed images including photos taken during the rebuild are provided in the gallery.
The interior has been stripped and prepped for motorsport, equipped with a Sparco Pro 2000 racing seat with a 6-point Schroth harness, a detachable MOMO steering wheel, and a Safecraft 10 lb. fire suppression system with 4 discharge points, in addition to a hardwired lap transponder, an hour meter, a charging/jump coupler, a Coolsuit controller, and an AIM MXL Sport dash system with GPS and built-in track mapping, which are housed inside a custom Alcantara dashboard built by Patrick Motorsports. The entire vehicle has been rewired using aircraft-grade Mil-spec wire with RayChem DR25 protective coating, is powered by an Odyssey PC925 gel battery, and all fuses are located in the dashboard for easy access.
