Porsche 914/6 1970 – SPRZEDANE

Było doskonale wyważone i prowadziło się fantastycznie, jednak gdy debiutowało na koniec lat 60-tych, ludzie w samochodach sportowych poszukiwali mocy i wizerunku, a w Porsche 914/4 brakowało jednego i drugiego. Dodatkowe konie wprowadzono do gry rok później, gdy Porsche 914/6 wyposażone zostało w brakujące ogniwo – 6-cylindrowy, 2-litrowy silnik z modelu 911T. Opinia „taniego” Porsche niestety nie pomagała w sprzedaży. W ciągu dwóch lat wyprodukowano ich zaledwie 3360, co skutkuje rosnącą dziś unikatowością i ceną, której pozazdrościć może niejedna 911-tka. Na aukcji Bonhamsa na Retromobile samochód uzyskał cenę 311371 PLN (już po wliczeniu prowizji).

Porsche’s strong historical links with Volkswagen we reaffirmed in 1969 with the launch of the Porsche-designed VW-Porsche 914, a mid-engined, Targa-top sports car to be assembled by Karmann of Osnabrück. First seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 914/4 used the 1,679cc, four-cylinder, air-cooled motor of the Volkswagen 411 while the 914/6 was powered by the Porsche 911T’s 2.0-litre six. Both cars employed all-independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes and a five-speed gearbox. The 914’s reputation for perfect balance and excellent handling was somewhat marred by criticism that the four-cylinder version was too slow, though lack of speed was never a shortcoming of the 914/6. The 914/6 was a relatively short-lived model with only 3,360 examples produced between 1970 and 1972, and is now much sought after.

Registered with the 914/6 Club, this rare and desirable modern Porsche was with one owner for 40 years before being acquired by the current vendor in 2012. The car was first restored in 1999 and more recently in 2011, and is described as in generally very good condition, the original engine being rebuilt 'like new’. Accompanying documentation consists of the 2011 restoration invoices, Wintherthur Assurance Expertise, FIA papers, Swiss Permis de Circulation and valid technical inspection.
