We are pleased to present this 1970 Porsche 914-6 for auction. With a recent $23k mechanical overhaul, this 5-speed coupe stands ready to be enjoyed by a discerning air-cooled enthusiast. Being a 914-6 model, this car is highly favored for its larger 6-cylinder engine (derived from the flagship 911), that offers an uncompromising visceral driving experience. Standing proud with a low production number, this 914-6 represents one of the more desirable vintage Porsches to own.
Retaining its factory color of White, this 914 provides an eye-catching patina that greatly coincides with its simplistic design. All complimentary exterior components show to be in excellent condition including the targa roof, fog lights, rubber seals, grommets, and brightwork. Detailed images are available in the photo gallery. Additionally, the next owner should have peace of mind knowing that the "hell hole" was repaired in 2015. This example rides on a set of iconic Deep Six 15” Fuchs wheels that come wrapped in Dunlop DZ tires dated from 2005 with plenty of tread-life remaining.
This 914-6 features a factory correct black basket weave vinyl interior that shows only minor wear with a few cracks on the dashboard. All electronics and accessories are said to be in working order aside from the aftermarket Sony head unit. The seller notes that an upgraded steering wheel has been installed.
Launched alongside the 4-cylinder version, this 914-6 was equipped with a larger 2.0L flat-six engine derived straight from the 911 model. The 914-6 is further distinguished by its use of five lug hubs, larger brakes, and an ignition switch properly located on the left side of the steering wheel. Approximately 125HP and 131 lb-ft of torque is delivered to the rear wheels via a numbers matching 5-speed manual gearbox making for a truly enjoyable driving experience. The seller states that over $23k was recently spent on mechanical work, bringing this 914 to top-level running condition with less than 1k miles driven since. A few noteworthy items addressed include:
Receipts of all work performed are included in the photo gallery.
The sale will include original books and manuals, service records, and two keys.
