Porsche 914 was one of the most exotic sports classic cars that graced the American market. It was built by a joint collaboration between Volkswagen and Porsche and was marketed successfully all over the world from 1969 to 1976.
The owner of Chester River Automotive believes because that the engine was mounted midway instead of rear-way and the car was blessed with excellent comfort handling. The car used to flaunt its flatly-styled roadster body, twin luggage compartments, and removable targa roof panel which used to catch the eye of all the people interested in cars. It was often considered to be a delicate two seater vehicle but was elegant enough to mark some ever green memories during your journey.
The production of 914/6 version was halted in 1972 because of fewer sales and newer and better version which comprised of a 2.0-liter engine version was launched in 1972. It consisted of a four-cylinder unit with a lot more similar output. The car also boasted of a blistering performance and but lacked in acceleration as it clocked 0-60 mph in 13 seconds that could create doubts on a driver’s mind but it had a top speed of 110 mph that is quite good according to the past quality of standard cars.
Your tires also ensure a longer life owing to the weight balance this car has due to being a mid-engined car. It consisted of wheel disks brakes and served a better life for the brakes too. It showed a brilliant throttle response but the lack of assistance of power indicated that pedal pressure was indeed required. This vintage car is rust free and doesn’t have holes for speaker in the doors instead has an original radio fitted inside it.
This car has suffered lots of Ups and down in its sales in the past but nowadays if such a car comes into the market, people would not let go of this cheap affordable little attractive sports car.
