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 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! 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 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! 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.
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
