1970 Porsche 914-6

$_57 (1)

For our last installment of Motorsports Monday, we featured a Porsche 914-6 GT that was track ready. That car sold for $30,100. If you aren’t much one for track days but are looking for the brawn the flat-6 engine provides over the flat-4, you’ll want to check out this 914-6 for sale in California with a GT spec 2.5 liter engine. It may not be done up in full on race livery, but if you have the nerve, imagine what a weapon this thing would be at the next autocross event near you.

1970 914/6 GT
Serial number 9140431367

Beautifully restored Adriatic Blue 914/6 with ‘dealer installed’ M471 fenders. The car is European spec including all lenses and gages and the COA indicates FINLAND EQUIPMENT as an option. The engine is a factory supplied 1970 blank magnesium case that has been race-built with 2,5L Twin Plug 914/6 GT specifications. The COA is matching apart from the drivetrain, however the engine listed on the COA seemingly did not stay with the car very long. The gearbox is a modified side shift transmission with taller gearing to match the performance of the engine. The car accelerates like a bat out of hell and handles like it’s on rails. It is no wonder that these cars were out performing the 911 in 1970. The build has approx. 500 miles on it since completion and the car is in perfect mechanical condition. Every single nut and bolt has been attended to and the car is in need of nothing. All parts have been replaced or restored as necessary. All panels are perfectly straight and align nicely. The paint is near perfect apart from very minor scratches and imperfections. The interior is extremely clean and largely original. This 914/6 represents a very important part of Porsche history and every attempt has been made to preserve the authenticity of this car as it was found. I have personally invested a small fortune in this car and it shows. I am sure I have left some things out, but here is the bulk of what has been done to this car:

Of any 914 I’ve seen in my time with GCFSB, this is perhaps my favorite. The color fits the cheerful nature of the 914 but the wide haunches hint at the beastly nature that lies beneath. Couple that with the sport seats and Fuchs alloys and the look is just right. Any Porsche with an air-cooled flat-6 is not going to be cheap these days, but there are a lot of other air-cooled 911s you could buy at this price. You’d really have to want a 914 to spend this kind of money, then. This one is priced right at the top of where 914-6 values are sitting, so we’ll see if the GT livery helps its case.

  1. Great colour, spectacular car.
    However the ask is aggressive for a car without any of its matching drivetrain. Fat fenders look nice but is “dealer installed” simply code for “wasn’t on the Porsche COA”??

  2. No clone, no matter how much the seller has invested in it, should bring as much as an original car in similar condition, especially in this market, and most especially with so few unmolested 914/6s available. Very nice car, but I would say over-priced by a good $20K.
