1970 Porsche 914-6 GT

Serving for many years as the entry-level Porsche, the 914 remains a somewhat under-appreciated machine. It never possessed the iconic stature of the 911 and, unlike its entry-level predecessor the 912, it stood somewhat outside the fold within the Porsche catalog. Somewhat at odds with its entry-level nature, Porsche produced the 914-6, which replaced the standard 4-cylinder of the 914 with an air-cooled 2.0 liter flat-six and aligned the 914 more closely with the 911. For racing, Porsche then took the 914-6 to its logical conclusion to produce the 914-6 GT. The 914 itself was always a car lithe in body and light in character. There seemed almost no wasted space and everything was kept only as complex as was necessary. The 914-6 GT added muscle to that package through both a more powerful engine and also a filling out of that minimalist body. The GT still possessed that feeling of lightness endemic to all 914s, but those widened filled out fenders now made clear its very serious pretensions. The car we see here makes an attempt at reproducing the look and spirit of the GT. Here we have a Tangerine over Black 1970 Porsche 914-6, located in California, which utilizes a 911 sourced 3.2 liter flat-six along with the requisite structural and suspension upgrades to help deliver its additional power effectively. As with any car that has seen an engine swap and long list of other modifications the devil is in the details. In many builds the execution can be lacking. The work here, however, appears to have been done quite well and the overall package is absolutely intriguing.

Beautiful car, I love the tangerine and black contrast, and it looks well put together. I can imagine this would make for one serious driver or, were someone so inclined, a heck of a track car. But man is this a lot of money! Like most builds of this nature even this high asking price likely sits below, perhaps well below, the cost of replicating one for yourself. But at $95K we are well into 930 territory and as long as you stay away from the ’89 you’d even have a good chunk of change to spare. There is a uniqueness to this car that has its own value, to which it is extremely difficult to attach a dollar figure, and we can appreciate that this wasn’t a half-hearted job. Every aspect of the car has seen attention from the body to the engine, suspension, braking, and interior. It isn’t an original 914-6 GT, but it appears to play the part fairly well.

    This car has been in Hemmings for months. Too bad it was messed with. It would be worth more as an original car, but still not $95K. And $149K as an even trade? Right.
