Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay This Week: Volume 126

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for a few years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing examples pop up now and again. This week we’re focusing on one of the best handling cars of its time, the venerable Porsche 914. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed our curated look at the Porsche market. Keep in mind, some of these Porsches could be great collection investments, while others might prove to do more financial harm than good.

INTERESTED IN HAVING YOUR PORSCHE FEATURED HERE?

Every other week, we feature 5 of our favorite Porsches on eBay. That post is sent out to our mailing list of more than 17,000 Porsche owners and fans and is seen by 10s of thousands of other readers who visit our site directly. If you’re selling a Porsche on eBay and would like to see it featured here, just shoot us an email with the details and we’ll be back in touch. Otherwise, feel free to check out all the other eBay listings we have on our Porsches for sale pages.

1. 1972 Porsche 914 For Sale

From the outside, this 914 looks like a nicely prepared mostly-stock example. It’s got a set of later cookie cutter wheels, and the sail panels are missing their traditional vinyl covering. Inside, you’ll really only notice the extra gauges on the center console and a modern stereo head unit. When you open the trunks, however, you’ll notice some modifications beyond the norm. Up front is a big radiator, which requires a cut into the front trunk area. In the rear trunk, a large red distributor sticks up through the firewall. That distributor is attached to a huge Chevrolet V8. The ad claims the car is scary fast, and I believe it. 914s are featherweight flyers with sub-100 horsepower, so if you more than double the output, you’ll easily scare yourself.

2. 1974 Porsche 914 1.8 Nostalgia Special For Sale

Another 914 with cookie cutter style wheels, and I’m starting to think these wheels belong on that chassis. For one thing, it means the car has been converted to five-lug, which is a good sign. This example has had a recent engine rebuild with larger bore pistons and cylinders, and the finicky fuel injection system has been ditched for carburetors. Aside from the paint-matched bumper, I really like the yellow paint and black trim of this 914. It’s a good looking weekend cruiser.

3. 1972 Porsche 914 2.2-liter Hot Rod For Sale

If there is a common thread here with the five cars here, it’s that 914 owners just can’t leave well enough alone. This little white gem looks like a ton of fun with a seriously hot Type 4 motor that has been punched up to 2.2 liters. The seller states the car is estimated to have around 200 horsepower, but without dyno sheets, I’d be quite skeptical of that number. In any case, it’s a good looking car with plenty of power for most needs.

4. 1975 Porsche 914-6 3.2-liter Outlaw For Sale

I’ve never been a fan of the 75 and 76 rubber bumper 914s, but somehow this one really seems to work well. With a set of the Fifteen52 Outlaw 4-lug wheels, and a nice coat of red paint, it looks just right. Like it deserved to be an outlaw all along. This particular car has a huge 3.2-liter engine in the back, built to enough power to kick some serious butt. Of the five cars featured here, this is the one I’d most like to drive home. It appears well built and fast enough to scare the pants off of even the most seasoned drivers.

5. 1974 Porsche 914 Slant Nose Project For Sale

My head says no, but my heart says yes. There is something nostalgic to me about a poorly-finished slant-nose conversion, as these were everywhere in the 80s and 90s. This one has a V8 swap, to boot. It’s probably the least likely to make you any money, but if you finish it up right, you’ll grab eyeballs everywhere you go, and have a ton of fun in the process. You could probably bring something like this to a Radwood and take home a trophy (not that I have any connections or anything…).

Well Sorted 914/6 Proves An Excellent Canyon Carver

If you could have the car you drove to high school prom back, would you want it? Would it be as cool as Marco’s 914-6? I drove a rusty 1991 Ford Mustang convertible to my prom, so he’s definitely got me beat. This white mid-engine beauty is an impressive beast of a Porsche, now running a 2.5-liter twin-plug flat-six engine pumping out about 220 horsepower. That’s certainly a lot of fun in the back seat (maybe not the kind you’d normally expect on prom night, but I’ve already said too much).

Marco, who now spends his days working on Porsches at TLG Auto in North Hollywood, California, had this 914 in high school, but sold it a while back. More recently, the person he sold it to offered to sell it back to him without wheels, engine, or interior. He jumped at the chance, being that the 914 still featured the close-ratio gearbox he loved all those years ago. Restarting a car build from a familiar platform essentially as a blank slate must have been a truly exhilarating experience for Marco, and one most of us will never get to experience.

In the below video, Matt Farah of The Smoking Tire, takes Marco’s 914 for a spin north of Los Angeles. The 914’s mid-engine chassis is competent and honestly quite advanced for the early 1970s, beating a number of more expensive cars on the road and the race track. The four-cylinder models are a joy to drive, but if you fit the engine compartment with a hot flat-six, you’re bound to surprise yourself with an incredibly modern driving experience. Aside from the notchy and not-at-all-responsive 901-style gearbox, which Matt has plenty of his own trouble with in the video, these cars are an absolute dream to drive. As Marco says, you could easily daily-drive this car, even in LA traffic, and never get sick of it. Which is why he does just that.

Jeff Zwart Burns Rubber in his 914-6

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Jeff Zwart’s wild creation thrashed as it was intended. Over the last forty-five years, Jeff has hustled this lemon yellow 914 in a variety of events, though with few giveaways to its true heritage and power, it might fly under the radar of most. However, keen eyes might pick out the telltale badge or the flared steel fenders, and one glance at the focused interior—complete with a vintage rally computer—would leave no enthusiast wondering whether this diminutive demon was made of stronger stuff.

Peeking into the trunk, the shovel and fire extinguisher are signs of a life spent in competition. This is no poseur’s ride—but Jeff is about the furthest thing from a poseur you could find. A renowned director, photographer, racer, and world traveler; this man’s led a colorful life revolving around his passion for Porsches—hence holding onto this fragile relic for nearly half a century

Weighing just one ton and outputting 220 horsepower, this 914 really had to be competed with. This Porsche rallied from Panama to Alaska, drove through Europe, hillclimbed in New Zealand, and escorted Zwart through college. I’d wager prowling around his campus in a yellow, raucous 914-6 like this one made him a very popular man.

Zwart is not one to turn down a burnout challenge.
