The affordable, fun, and nimble German sports car has really come into its own on the classic market. This 1973 Porsche 914 has a great color combo, the right features, and the unmistakable feeling of a true driving machine engineered in Stuttgart. And it's all available today at an affordable price.
The design of the 914 was one of the most interesting Porsche ever made. It follows the same principal of the 911 that made sure the tall fender line helped you understand where the front edges of the car were. But then it adds a completely sleek front end with the aid of pop-up headlights. Signal Orange seems to be the ideal color for this coupe. Combined with the black vinyl roll bar, black bumpers, and black targa roof, this has a beautiful distinct and contrasting total package. And this has all the right pieces – from the 2.0 badging to the Pedrini wheels – to really get enthusiasts happy.
If you like the way the black trim looks against the orange exterior, then you're going to love the full black interior. And after all, a targa sports car is meant to be open to the world and put the wind in your hair. There's even an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner with cassette player for upgraded tunes while going down the road. But more than just the music, this was built to be a true driver's machine. Bucket seats, a well-placed gearshift, grippy sports steering wheel, and a full gauge cluster with the tach prominently in the middle – this offers the true vintage Porsche experience.
It's hard to look in the engine bay and not make comparisons to the modern Boxster. After all, the 2.0-liter flat-four motor is mounted in the center to give you the best balance on the road. And just like the Boxster, this setup also gives you two trunks. The consignor states the motor was rebuilt in 1992 (21,000 miles ago.) It was given a hydraulic camshaft and the fuel-injection was replaced with an easier to service set of Weber carbs. Plus, there's an MSD ignition and a newer clutch for the five-speed transmission. With a car this well-balanced, you'll also love the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for a total package that will have you constantly looking for the long and winding road home.
This Porsche has spent the last half its life with the same owner, and so it has been cared for correctly. That's exactly what you want in an affordable and distinctive classic. So don't miss out, call today!
