1976 Porsche 914 2.0 5-Speed

The Porsche 914 was produced from 1969 up until the Spring of 1976, with the last examples delivered to the United States.  Among the final-year cars destined for California was this 914 2.0 finished in Nepal Orange over a tan interior with orange pepita inserts.  It had been under the care of a previous owner in Washington from 2005 up until January of 2021 when it was acquired by the current owner who has since commissioned a full repaint along with a major engine-out service and refurbishment.  A well-sorted example of one of the last Porsche 914s, this 2.0 is now being offered for auction by its owner out of California.

This example was factory finished in Nepal Orange (L20C), a 914-exclusive color offered during the model’s final years. Equipment includes black U.S. specifications bumpers with integrated front fog lights, a removable black Targa top, black Porsche side graphics, a driver’s side mirror, antenna, and aftermarket 15” Riviera-style wheels dressed in new Kumho tires.  The seller states the car retained much of its original paint before it was completely refinished in the factory color by the professionals at MTC AutoBody in 2021.  The original floor pans are said to have been retained, while a portion of the passenger floor has been reinforced.  One small dent is noted on the passenger rear fender, detailed images are provided in the gallery.

The cabin is appointed with tan leatherette upholstery and features seats re-trimmed to their original appearance with rare orange pepita inserts.  The factory optional center console includes a clock as well as gauges for battery voltage and oil pressure.  Newer carpeting has been fitted and the upper door panels have been replaced.  The seller reports an intermittent fault for the middle console instruments due to a faulty ground wire, and the interior mirror is said to accompany the sale along with new Targa top seals.

The air-cooled and fuel-injected 2.0L flat-four engine sends up to 95 HP to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission.  Service carried out since the owner’s purchase in 2021 includes installation of four new brake calipers, a new battery, gear linkage, and an engine-out service with new seals and ignition components.  The seller notes a small piece of linkage has been ordered and is still outstanding for the handbrake assembly.  Some maintenance records are provided in the gallery along with images of the undercarriage.

This sale will include a clean title and some service records.

    Nice research!

    But surely you don't believe everything that you "find" on the Internet.
    Since the link shows it "sold" in April of 2021 on Ebay Canada for $ 2,550
    you should know this has to be suspect and just part of some scam.

  • eurocol (seller) 4 months, 2 weeksago

    @Coachmule no it was not this car,
    I was at a local cars and coffee meet with some buddies in Tarzana.

  • Coachmule (registered bidder) 4 months, 3 weeksago

    @allmack "Ask was $2,550 in early 2021"
    what does this means???

  • allmack (registered bidder) 4 months, 3 weeksago

    Ask was $2,550 in early 2021 - after refurb costs, $18k seems like would be well sold.

    Sorry, I jumped the gun and congratulated people without looking to see there was a reserve, and it wasn't met. I'm surprised, it is a very nice car, and one of the best years for 914s, some say the best. This car is certainly as good as the Phoenix Orange '74 that went for way over market rate the other day. It would take little effort and money to correct a couple of minor flaws on this car. Great, rare opportunity to get one of the very last 914s ever made. GLWS

    Congrats to both Seller and Buyer, nicely done!

    @eurocol Are you sure about that engine serial number, seems too high according to the chart posted in your auction. I didn't see the picture, maybe you could send it to me? Thanks!

    @MCShack thank you for the kind words,
    finally found the engine number.
    The last 4 numbers appear to be 8939
    I have posted a picture to Pcarmarket

  • MCShack (registered bidder) 4 months, 3 weeksago

    This was the 21st car to begin production on Wednesday, December 10, 1975 at the Karmann Plant in Osnabrück, West Germany, according to the Chassis Number on the Karmann tag. It would have been completed before the end of the year according to the DOT sticker, and therefore most likely one of the last 100 cars made assuming only 4100 cars were produced for MY '76. It is believed that no 914s were started after Christmas Break at the factory, only finished up the few cars that were already started but not 100% complete.

    This car looks great after the work done by the current owner, repaint and refurbishment look fantastic, kudos on a job well done! Do you have the engine serial number by chance or a picture of it? This would be great historical information for one of the last 100 914s made.

    @Yamadude68

    The odometer has rolled over once,
    it's now showing 13k miles,
    so that would be 113K total.

  • Yamadude68 (registered bidder) 5 monthsago

    Silly question but does this 914 have 13k miles, 113k or 213k miles? Thanks seller.
    Beautiful car by the way.

    Hi there,
    and welcome to my auction.
    Fun Fact.
    This car is one of the very last Porsche 914 ever made, 12/76.
    Of the 1976 limited run of 4100 cars,
    this car is number # 4018,
    so one of the very last 100 cars to come off the production line.

    Finished in the rare color of Nepal Orange.
