This Green 914 Inspires A Serious Porsche Passion

As Tyler steps into his strikingly green 914, he immediately launches into its storied history as the enthusiasm flows out by the bucketful. More than mere sentimental attachment, the allure of this gorgeous car comes from its classic configuration. « 914s have always been one of my favorite cars, specifically because [of] its mid-engined, air-cooled, horizontally-opposed motor, » he elaborates.

The mixture of loud, obnoxious pops and classy green paint scheme make it a head-turner. Its shortened gears, athletic stance, and flared fenders from its racing past make it a genuine canyon carver. It’s much more than eye candy; it’s part of an infatuation that’s gripped him since the age of seven.

Sleek lines, great paint, and hints of a racing background give this car a striking appearance.

« Your senses are dedicated to driving, and not thinking about stuff that’s in the past [or] stuff that’s in the past; it’s just all right now, » he remarks. If his ever-present smirk or the way his car makes him wax poetic don’t convey that boyish sort of obsession that grips any autophile from an early age, nothing does.

« The only way to really appreciate it is to drive it, » he remarks.

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…).
