vintage! The VW-Porsche 914 | drive it!

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! Porsche 911S | drive it!
The 911 is THE iconic sports car and the raspy note from its air-cooled engine became its trademark.Two years after the 911 hit the showrooms, Porsche came out with the even more powerful 911S. Under the hood was a 2 liter motor pumping out 160 PS. It was enough to take car and driver to a top speed of over 220 km/h. The original design from 1963 was the work of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, who was just 28 years old at the time. The car's timeless silhouette still catches the eye today and provides the blueprint for all 911s that followed.





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: Mercedes C111 | drive it!
More than forty years ago, car lovers the world over watched as the Mercedes C 111 rounded the track. Presented in 1969 as a two-seater with a fiberglass body and Wankel engine under its hood, the C 111 created a real stir in the motor world. True to the Mercedes motto"only the best is good enough,"it was developed almost to the point of going into series production.The C111 was widely praised for its unusual design, but the 1973 oil crisis blocked it from getting onto the road. The Wankel engine was thirsty, not thrifty, so the car was sent out to the track instead. drive it! recalls a much-loved model that never made it into the showroom.

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. Drive Tastefully® http://Petrolicious.com http://facebook.com/Petrolicious





Porsche 914-6 Done Right
One of the prettiest Porsche 914-6s. Done with care and style. While the 914 was once reviled, the 914-6 has always been embraced as a true Porsche. Still for purists of the day, only a 356 or a 911 would do. However, the Porsche 914-6 has now taken its place as one of the must-have Porsches for collectors. They're great for autocrossing, touring, and now even for concours.





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.
