PORSCHE 914/6 1971 - Full test drive in top gear | SCC TV
Your 'thumb up' or comments are so appreciated. Thank you! This is not an ordinary 914. It is the version with the 6 cilinder engine, known as the 914/6. This particular example has been fully restored and mechanically rebuilt in Germany about nine years ago. It was a bare metal restoration! The car was sold by dealer 'Winter' in Berlin in February 1971 to its first owner. It has the factory 5.5 X 14 inch Fuchs wheels. 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. At the time, the majority of Volkswagen's developmental work was handled by Porsche, part of a setup that dated back to Porsche's founding; Volkswagen needed to contract out one last project to Porsche to fulfill the contract, and decided to make this that project. Ferdinand Piëch, who was in charge of research and development at Porsche, was put in charge of the 914 project. Originally intending to sell the vehicle with a flat four-cylinder engine as a Volkswagen and with a flat six-cylinder engine as a Porsche, Porsche decided during development that having Volkswagen and Porsche models sharing the same body would be risky for business in the American market, and convinced Volkswagen to allow them to sell both versions as Porsches in North America. On March 1, 1968, the first 914 prototype was presented. However, development became complicated after the death of Volkswagen's chairman, Heinz Nordhoff, on April 12, 1968. His successor, Kurt Lotz, was not connected with the Porsche dynasty and the verbal agreement between Volkswagen and Porsche fell apart. In Lotz's opinion, Volkswagen had all rights to the model, and no incentive to share it with Porsche if they would not share in tooling expenses. With this decision, the price and marketing concept for the 914 had failed before series production had begun. As a result, the price of the chassis went up considerably, and the 914/6 ended up costing only a bit less than the 911T, Porsche's next lowest price car. The 914/6 sold quite poorly while the much less expensive 914/4 became Porsche's top seller during its model run, outselling the Porsche 911 by a wide margin with over 118,000 units sold worldwide. Volkswagen versions originally featured an 80 PS (59 kW; 79 bhp) fuel-injected 1.7 L flat-4 engine based on the Volkswagen air-cooled engine. Porsche's 914/6 variant featured a carbureted 110 PS (81 kW; 108 bhp) 2.0 L flat-6 engine from the 1969 911T, placed amidships in front of a version of the 1969 911's "901" gearbox configured for a mid-engine car. Karmann manufactured the rolling chassis at their plant, completing Volkswagen production in-house or delivering versions to Porsche for their final assembly. 914/6 models used lower gear ratios and high brake gearing in order to try to overcome the greater weight of the 6 cylinder engine along with higher power output. Suspension, brakes, and handling were otherwise the same. A Volkswagen-Porsche joint venture, Volkswagen of America, handled export to the U.S., where both versions were badged and sold as Porsches, except in California, where they were sold in Volkswagen dealerships. The four-cylinder cars were sold as Volkswagen-Porsches at European Volkswagen dealerships. Slow sales and rising costs prompted Porsche to discontinue the 914/6 variant in 1972 after producing 3,351 of them; its place in the lineup was filled by a variant powered by a new 100 PS (74 kW; 99 bhp) 2.0 L, fuel-injected version of Volkswagen's Type 4 engine in 1973. For 1974, the 1.7 L engine was replaced by a 85 PS (63 kW; 84 bhp) 1.8 L, and the new Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection system was added to American units to help with emissions control. 914 production ended in 1976. The 2.0 L flat-4 engine continued to be used in the 912E, which provided an entry-level model until the 924 was introduced. The 914 was Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year for 1970. A 914/6 GT driven by Frenchmen Claude Ballot-Lena and Guy Chasseuil won the GTS class and finished sixth overall at the 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans. Brian Redman used a 914/6 to scout the course in practice runs for the 1970 Targa Florio.

Volkswagen’s original halo car Trout Blue exterior with light and dark blue interior with white trim 1192 cc flat four-cylinder engine Four-speed manual transmission Original six-volt electrical system Wide whitewall tires Torsion bar suspension with stabilizer bars Sapphire I AM radio Combine the Beetle’s mechanical simplicity with the suave bodywork from Italy’s Ghia and you get Volkwagen’s original 2+2 coupe, the Karmann Ghia. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this 1957 model. With a seating position lower than that of a standard Beetle, Ghias were nicknamed “Lowlights.” The Type 14 debuted at the October 1953 Paris Auto Show as a styling concept created for Ghia by stylist Luigi Segre. This VW is equipped with an air-cooled 1192cc flat four-cylinder engine backed by a four-speed manual transmission. The engine bay is nicely detailed and the car is still powered by an original six-volt electrical system. This Ghia’s ride is steadied by independent torsion-bar suspension on all four wheels and stabilizer bars. The exterior is painted in Trout Blue and accented by beautiful wide whitewall tires, VW moon wheel covers, chrome bumpers, moldings, emblems and center caps – all of which are in excellent condition. The car’s windows are clear, crack-free and pristine. All of the body panels are solid and straight and are gorgeous. Fitted with a Sapphire I AM radio, the interior is finished in blue and white on the door panels, with dark and light blue sporty front contoured bucket seats that are adjustable to give the driver full stretch and a rear bench seat that folds down for more space. There’s a white, two-spoke steering wheel for the driver and the Trout Blue metal instrument panel, complete with passenger grab bar, looks new. There’s also a wire utility basket between the front buckets with dual cupholders and space for small item storage. In the early 1950s, Volkswagen was producing its economy car, the Type 1 (Beetle). With an increase in post-war standards of living, executives at Volkswagen proposed adding a halo car to its model range, contracting with German coachbuilder Karmann for its manufacture. Karmann, in turn, contracted the Italian firm Ghia, who adapted styling themes previously explored for Chrysler and Studebaker to a Beetle floorpan widened by 12 inches. In contrast to the Beetle’s machine-welded body with bolt-on fenders, the Karmann Ghia’s body panels were butt-welded, hand-shaped, and smoothed with English pewter in a time-consuming process commensurate with higher-end manufacturers, resulting in the Karmann Ghia’s higher price. The design and prototype were well received by Volkswagen executives, and in August 1955 the first Type 14 was manufactured in Osnabrück, Germany. Public reaction to the Type 14 exceeded expectations and more than 10,000 were sold in the first year. The Type 14 was marketed as a practical and stylish 2+2 rather than as a true sports car. As they shared engines, the Type 14’s engine displacement grew concurrently with the Type 1 (Beetle), ultimately arriving at a displacement of 1584 cc, producing 60 horsepower. In August 1957, Volkswagen introduced a convertible version of the Karmann Ghia. This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 71,811 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, exempt mileage title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
