The affordable, fun, and nimble German sports car has really come into its own on the classic market. This 1974 Porsche 914 has a great color combo, the right features, and the unmistakable feeling of a true driving machine engineered in Stuttgart. And as you dig into the details, you'll see a well-documented and well-respected classic that has been a local boy all its life.
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. The factory-correct Saturn Yellow seems to be the ideal color for this Porsche. Combined with the crisp look on the black vinyl roll bar, black bumpers, and black targa roof, this has a beautiful distinct and contrasting total package.
We're used to seeing the interior done in all black, so showing off this highly original and very distinct brown interior is another great reason to drive around with the targa top out. 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. The bucket seats, a well-placed gearshift, and the classic sports steering wheel offer the true vintage Porsche experience.
It's hard not to look in the engine bay and make comparisons to the modern Boxster. After all, the 1.8-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. As you look though all the paperwork, you'll see a long history of respect and maintenance, including a recent tune-up. So this is believed to be the original motor, and it runs like a well-done fuel-injected powerplant should. You get to make the most of it all thanks to the control that comes from a five-speed manual 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.
The sale come with a ton of valuable paperwork, including the original window sticker (proving it was sold new in downtown Nashville,) bill of sale, dealer invoice, owner's manual packet, and maintenance records. That's exactly the total package you want in an affordable and distinctive classic. So don't miss out, call today!
