Conceived in collaboration with Volkswagen, the 914 was to be an economical sports car replacing the VW Karman Ghia and giving Porsche something to call entry-level. Most were produced with VW flat-four-cylinder motors and, in Europe; these were VW badged as well. Only 3,360 914/6’s were produced. The 2.0-liter, flat-six made significantly more (35) horsepower than the largest VW flat-four available in the other models. All had a five-speed transaxle. Porsche entered a 914/6 GT in the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race and it took its class and sixth overall; not too shabby for an entry-level sports car. The 914’s mid-engine, rear-wheel drive and near perfect weight balance make it a confidence-inspiring driver through corners. It’s also an endearing starting point for those wishing to own a Porsche, with a combination of fine performance and elegant aesthetics.
