1971 Porsche 914-4 Ginther replica

No, you’re not on the wrong day; it’s Sunday, and I’m reviewing a race car, something I’d usually leave until Motorsport Monday. But with “V8 Week” upcoming and time running out on this car’s auction, it was too good to not write up – plus, we have something special for you tomorrow. While in the past I’ve focused on some big dollar 911s, today we’re looking at a much more affordable to buy and run 914. For a long time unloved by most of the Porsche crowd, in race trim the 914 is a solid performer and hearkens back to a time when you had to drive the car yourself rather than relying on computers to do the heavy lifting. Better yet, without relying on the power of it’s bigger brethren to drag it out of corners, the 914 is a fantastic platform for you to better yourself as a driver. Like the Martini Racing RSR replica I wrote up last week, today’s 914 is a recreation of a more famous race car, this time the Richie Ginther 914-4 race cars built for West Coast Porsche and Audi:

Assoc. log book. The car was raced for 1 ½ years and it has been serviced, checked and ready to race. Every

This car is the one to buy, with a full restoration already done. The correct race pieces have been fit, and this car will certainly hang with the competition. I think it looks awesome in yellow with the period graphics that we saw on everything from the 914 through the 917-30. But what really sets this car apart for most race wannabes is the full package; race car, enclosed trailer, and pit bike are all included in the purchase price. As a package then, all you need to show up with is a tow vehicle capable of taking your personal race team with you. I think this car looks fantastic, from the Panasports to the windscreen free profile. As complete packages go, this seems like a pretty reasonable deal. Yes, the car and trailer do show some wear, but you’d be hard pressed to recreate this package for less than the asking price, and you’d save yourself a lot of headaches and time not trying to reinvent the wheel.
