The Porsche 914-6 is a mid-engined sports car designed, manufactured and marketed collaboratively by Volkswagen and Porsche from 1969 to 1976. By the late 1960s, both Volkswagen and Porsche were in need of new models; Porsche was looking for a replacement for their entry-level 912, and Volkswagen wanted a new range-topping sports coupe to replace the Karmann Ghia coupe. Through their collaboration, the Porsche 914 was born. The 914 was available in two configurations, the standard 914 with VW 4-cylinder air cooled engine, or the 914-6 with a 911 flat six engine. The 914-6 was the ultimate sleeper of it’s time.

Step inside and you will notice how the exterior flows seamlessly into the interior thanks to the unique idea of leaving the rocker panels painted Gold Metallic on the interior. The floor pan, rear firewall are also painted Gold Metallic. Not only does this look great but it saves weight since there is less carpeting used. The oil cooler lines were carefully routed through the interior and look very cool exposed near the pedal box. The black seats with contrast stitching and door cards were handmade and look fantastic against the Gold Metallic interior and exterior paint. You will find no rips or stains throughout, the interior is absolutely flawless because it’s brand new – as is the whole car! All hardware was Cadium Plated which gives the components a “Gold” appearance. Even the 911 style gauge surrounds were Cadium Plated – something we thought would be very unique to the build. The gauges include a 150MPH Speedo, 10K Tach and a custom 3 cluster oil/temp gauge. The finishing touch to the interior was the installation of a Momo Prototipo steering wheel – the best looking steering wheel for any early Porsche.
On the exterior this car had a proper GT Widebody conversion using metal flares. The wheels are 7” Fronts and 9” Rears with TB15 Tires to give the car a period correct look. Other exterior features include Carrera brakes with vented rotors.
