1970 Porsche 914-6/
Only produced for one year, the 914-6 has become an iconic car with only 300 registered examples left in the United States according to estimates.
It had the exterior appearance of a typical 914 1.7 with a four-cylinder VW engine, but that was where the similarities ended. Under its skin, it was composed of 911 elements: the engine, the brakes, suspension and five lug Fuch’s alloy wheels.
At the time it was a marketing failure, which accounts for the limited one-year run and rarity. The problem was that it cost as much as a new 911 and the 914 was so associated with VW that the buyer chose the 911 over the 914-6 for approximately the same outlay of cash.
For the driving enthusiast, that was big mistake. The power of a 911-T engine mounted mid-ship in a very light car meant that it handled beautifully and the low center of gravity helped as well; a great performance street car and a racer as well. A powerful package that assisted driver Alan Johnson in scoring 4 national championships. A great and rare opportunity to experience one of the rarest production Porsches that have survived.
This beautiful example is available at $560- per day and as tempting as it may be, NO TRACK DAYS!
