Marking the final year of Porsche’s mid-engine sports car developed in collaboration with Volkswagen, this 1976 Porsche 914 2.0 was originally sold in Minnesota featuring the optional Appearance Group package. It was acquired by the seller from a private owner in 2013 and has undergone a host of upgrades and customizations including a front oil cooler, stainless-steel brake lines, Minilite wheels, a Bursch muffler, an electronic distributor, carbon fiber & aluminum trim, LED instrument lights, a modern fuse panel, and more. Maintained by a 914 specialist and supported by a decade’s worth of service records, this 914 2.0 is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Pennsylvania.
This 914 is finished in Black with a matching removable Targa top and vinyl-covered sail panels which were included as part of the Appearance Group. It features gold Porsche stripes on each side along with matching 15” Minilite wheels. Other accessories include a Porsche-logo tail panel third brake light, dual mirrors, front fog lights, and a polished exhaust tip. The seller notes rust repairs have been carried out at the bottom of the driver’s door and below the battery shelf, and the Dunlop tires are 10 years old. Some paint chips and scratches are noted as well. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin features charcoal grey carpeting and tan leatherette upholstery on the seats, door panels, and armrest. The optional Appearance Group adds a gauge stack center console which has been customized with carbon fiber and aluminum trim. Other modifications include additional oil pressure and temperature gauges on the center dashboard, an aluminum shift knob and tri-color shift boot, an aluminum Rennline footrest, aluminum door sill trim, two-tone Coco floor mats, a Pioneer Bluetooth stereo, a fire extinguisher mounted below the passenger seat, and a three-spoke MOMO steering wheel. Upgraded LED lights have also been installed for the gauge cluster.
Power comes from an air-cooled and fuel-injected 2.0-liter flat-four engine paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle that drives the rear wheels. The seller notes an upgraded Ignition 123 electronic distributor has been installed along with a hot start relay kit, a front oil cooler, and a Bursch muffler. Other upgrades include PMB stainless-steel brake lines, a JWest fuse panel, and an Odyssey battery with an aluminum mount. The seller adds that the car has been professionally maintained by an independent 914 specialist and service records are available dating back to 2013.
This sale will include the original window sticker, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a spare tire, a car cover, an umbrella cover, a service cover, and a collection of removed original parts.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I have owned this car for 10 years, and it has been garaged all that time. All maintenance is done on or ahead of schedule. The addition of a front oil cooler is unique in that it does not intrude on the front trunk yet provides significant oil cooling. Whenever possible, I have installed upgraded parts, e.g., the old German fuse block has been replaced with a more modern one with spade fuses. An additional fuse block now protects the direct-to-battery circuits from overloading other components. All shift coupler bushings have been recently replaced, shifting is crisp and direct. All door and top seals are new. The Minilite wheels are 6-1/2 wide allowing much larger tires for superb handling without modifying the wheel wells. This is a well-maintained, solid cruising 914.”
