Up for auction is a well-sorted 1973 Porsche 914. The 914 was introduced as Porsche's premier mid-engine sports car, offering drivers both an open air and coupe-style experience thanks to its removable top. Currently stored in Alpharetta, GA, this example is stated to be in excellent driver-grade condition and being offered with just 59k miles on the odometer and 1k since the recent engine rebuild.
Finished in timeless Tangerine Orange, this 914 shows to have had one quality repaint at some point in its life. It is now said to be in very good condition with only a few cosmetic flaws that are noted in the gallery photos. The car rides on original 14” steel wheels that wear an older set of tires.
Inside, you will notice a very clean black leatherette interior that is stated to be in well above average condition for its age and milage. Only one minor area of rust is present near the passenger seat area of this otherwise rust-free car. Although unconfirmed, the seller believes that the interior received a professional restoration at some point in its life due to its crisp nature. The seller notes a few items that need to be addressed including the door locks, odometer, blower, and rear license plate lights.
This 914 highlights a completely rebuilt and larger 2.2L four-cylinder engine that is connected to a 5-speed manual transmission. In 2016, over $16k was invested into taking this engine to the next level. While keeping its original block, the seller implemented a new exhaust system, clutch, fuel pump, improved cam shaft, Webber carburetors, and more. The outcome; 125HP with all around increased performance. Receipts of all work will be provided with the sale. The engine is completely up-to-date on all service and is stated to be in excellent running condition.
The sale will include service records, documentation, all books, tools, and one key.
This is an opportunity to own an exceptional classic car that is sure to impress.
