The moon landing was no doubt the most pioneering event of 1969. But what Volkswagen and Porsche came out with that year also looked to many sports car lovers like something out of this world. The VW-Porsche 914 polarized people -- and still does today. Some consider the car a rotten compromise, others a true maverick. Still the numbers speak for themselves -- some 120-thousand 914s were built, making it the first mid-engine car to rack up six-digit sales figures.
vintage! The Karmann Ghia | drive it!
It is a heartbreaker of a car, a real dreamboat and possibly the most
beautiful VW ever built. However the sporty coupe does have one small
drawback. Its design is far racier than its driving performance.The first
Ghias were fitted wtih 30 horsepower VW Beetle
engines, while later models got 50 horsepower motors. Still,
when the Karmann Ghia was introduced back in 1955 this was more than enough
to keep vehicles like the Goggomobil and BMW Isetta in check. During it's
close to 20 years in production, some 443,000 Ghias were sold. Today this
classic car has nothing left to prove. We take a relaxing drive in this
stylish milestone of automotive history.
Vintage: The Mercedes 300 SL | Drive it!
When this car was launched back in 1954, it wasn't just the gullwing doors
that stunned the car world. It also boasted cutting-edge engineering that
made the model an immediate classic.

Vintage - the Honda S800 | drive it!
Our car tester Christoph Bauer takes a trip back in time with a real
automotive milestone from the 1960s: the Honda S800. Its elegant contours
are reminiscent of classic British roadsters like the Triumph TR 4 or MG B.
But the ride factor in this baby is more medieval than modern, thanks in
particular to the solid axle at the back.That said: even by today's
standards, a ride in the Honda S800 really is something special. No other
car could coax so much power and fun out of a 0.8-liter capacity.
vintage: Porsche 3.0 SC | drive it
Just about everyone dreams of buying a Porsche 911 - but a new one is a
pricey investment.One option is to buy an older model. The Porsche 3.0 SC,
which was built from 1978-1983, takes just 6.8 seconds to go from 0-100
km/h, and its top speed is 225 km/h. But when you are buying an old Porsche
you need to be clever - repairs can be costly. Porsche specialist Helmut
Freinecker tells us about the pitfalls.

1974 Porsche 914 2.0, Car/Owner Profile / Finally Getting the Respect it Deserves
Watch and listen to this excellent Porsche 914 2.0 rip though the
mountains, as this owner talks about his passion for the car. These cars
were the bastards of the Porsche world for the longest time, not accepted
by the Porsche community because of their Volkswagen roots. Over the past
few years things have really changed and now the masses are realizing what
awesome cars they are, as seen by the prices these little cars are fetching
This Porsche 914-6 Is Forgotten Only by Those Who Don't Know
After expressing an interest in racing, saying it "looked like fun," Mr.
Jack Griffin found himself strapped to a race car contesting the 12 Hours
of Sebring. Sure it was his first time sitting in a proper race car, but he
had four days of training in a Nissan 280ZX at Bondurant a week or so
earlier. In spite of his ample experience he found himself crunched against
one of Sebring's concrete barriers only fifteen laps into his stint.
Fortunately, he's had better luck with this 1970 Porsche 914-6 that he has
now owned for thirty-eight years. Even though he'd been looking for a 911
(and has since owned several), he has completely fall for its light, quick
manner and very predictable, solid handling. And while he doesn't consider
the Porsche beautiful, Jack does think it looks "interesting" and loves the
rarity. It may not be as popular as the 911, but this 914-6 ensures that
the model, far from forgotten, will grow in prestige.

VW Porsche 914 - Kurzfilm - AUTO BILD Klassik / Beziehungskisten
Thomas Viets aus Hamburg hat sein Herz an die Siebzigerjahre verloren. Das
es sich bei seinem eigenen Oldtimer auch um ein Auto aus dem Jahrzehnt der
grellen Farben und Prilblumen handeln muss -- absolut verständlich. Sein
jetziger Porsche 914 hatte bereits fünf Vorgänger und soll -- geht es
nach Thomas Viets -- mit ihm alt werden.
