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.

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay: Volume 101

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for nearly three years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing cars pop up now and again. This week we’re taking a look at Porsche’s history of entry level sports cars. 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. 1967 Porsche 912 For Sale

The original 912 marked Porsche’s first ‘entry level’ car in the mid-1960s. Customers at the time lamented the 911 as a more expensive, more powerful, and more luxurious car than the 356 it replaced, not to mention they missed that great four-cylinder sound. In order to appease those customers, Porsche introduced the 912, essentially a 911 with a 356’s engine. This is certainly my favorite Porsche model to drive, as it extends the 356 formula to its natural conclusion.

This car is a 5-speed model with green gauges, and a recent engine rebuild. It is said to be clean in the common rust areas, though some surface rust has accumulated around the deck lid and the windshield cowl. It appears to be a nice driver-grade car.

2. 1974 Porsche 914 2.0L For Sale

After the 912’s demise in 1969, Porsche introduced the 914 to replace it as an entry level model. Developed jointly with Volkswagen, and built at the Karmann body facility, the 914 was Porsche’s most successful sales model for two decades, even though it only lasted 6 years. With a Volkswagen-sourced ‘pancake’ flat-four, the 914 was not a power house, but with a mid-engine layout and excellent handling dynamics, it drove better than most anything in its era.

With just 23,000 miles, this 914 appears to be largely original and in very good condition. The phoenix red paint shows well in photographs and the tan interior is a nice touch. I’ve never been a big fan of the 1974’s large bumper extensions, but it looks far better than the 75-76 bumpers, retaining the chrome of the earlier cars.

3. 1976 Porsche 912E Sunroof For Sale

After 914 production ended, Porsche still had a couple thousand engines on their hands, and a shortage of entry-priced models for the US. As a stop-gap until 924 production could reach American shores, Porsche decided to revive the 912 nameplate by stuffing a 914 2-liter engine into the back of a 911 shell to create the 912E. Only 2099 of these were built, and just 500 of those with sunroof.

This car was recently restored in original grand prix white over black leatherette. The sellers claim over $14,000 in recent receipts. It’s slow, but very fun to drive. I have one of these in my own garage and I love it dearly.

4. 1979 Porsche 924 For Sale

In late 1976, the 924 was introduced and completely changed the game for Porsche. This was a parts-bin-engineering exercise that Porsche designed for Volkswagen to sell, using Super Beetle rear suspension, MKI Golf front suspension, an Audi 2-liter watercooled engine, and a transaxle gearbox slung out back. When Volkswagen backed out of the deal, Porsche had too much invested to let it go, so they put their own badge on the car and sold it in their dealership network. This is one of the best driving experiences you can have from Porsche, as the balance is just so perfect and the car so in-tune with the driver. Buy one before they explode in value.

It’s difficult to find a nice 924 these days, and this one appears to be quite nice. Traditional Porsche Guards Red over a brown interior is a very good look for a 924, and with just 29,000 miles on the odometer, this one should serve nicely.

5. 2000 Porsche Boxster For Sale

The 924 ushered in a line of so-called transaxle cars that progressed through 944 and ended with the 968. From 1976 through 1995, the transaxle cars sold well for Porsche and set new sales records seemingly every year. Their success on the showroom floor was vastly overshadowed by that of the original Boxster. The 986 was introduced in 1997, and is often said to be the car that saved Porsche from the brink. This time Porsche mixed excellent mid-engine chassis dynamics with a flat-six engine (for the first time since the limited production 914-6 of 1970 and 1971), and it was an absolutely killer experience.

I chose to include this one not because it’s a particularly good example, its actually quite average with lots of miles and a low price tag. I chose this car because it was the only one I could find with color-matched wheels. There’s something about a color-matched wheel that I just love. This 2.7-liter 5-speed manual model isn’t going to set the world on fire with performance, but it’ll blow you away with stellar handling and top-down fun. For $6500, how could you go wrong?

Our Favorite Porsches On Ebay: Volume 100

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for nearly three years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing cars pop up now and again. This being the 100th edition marks a huge milestone for our eBay hunting. 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.

1. Scottie Pippen’s 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.8L Custom For Sale

This listing leaves us with way more questions than we have answers. The car has clearly been heavily modified with a wild aftermarket set of bumpers, and the engine in this 930 has been punched out to a massive 3.8-liters. The seller claims over 93,000 dollars in receipts, which sounds feasible. The interior is a bit of a period-correct disaster, but we think we could even look past that with the kind of power this car has to be pumping out. Less than 50,000 miles on the odometer, it would seem that the famous Chicago Bull baller hadn’t spent much time behind the wheel of this car. Low miles and wonky interior notwithstanding, we’d love to take this car for a spin around the block, or perhaps around the country.

2. 1992 Porsche 968 For Sale

Having just spent the weekend at Radwood, the car show for 80s and 90s cars, we fell back in love with Porsche’s transaxle cars. When you have an affinity for such, it would make sense to lust after the best model of the line. In this case, we saw a gorgeous low-mile 968 Coupe and decided that the day would soon come where we needed to purchase one. In the meantime, it’s perhaps best served to spend our time searching for examples on eBay for hours on end. This white coupe appears to be in relatively good shape, and considering this is a 6-speed car with factory limited slip and 17″ cup wheels, the just-shy-of-twelve-grand asking price seems on the low side. This should be a good driver-grade car for any Porsche fan.

3. 1976 Porsche 911 Kremer 935 Race Car For Sale

This is allegedly a real-deal Kremer racer that spent most of its life racing in Germany at the hands of privateers. In the 1990s, the car was sold off to Willi Rabl, who won two European Hillclimb championships in the car. The original 3.4L engine was pulled out and swapped for a 800-horsepower IMSA-spec 3-liter. It isn’t every day that a Kremer and DP prepared 911 racer comes up for sale, especially one that has claimed championship laurels. It sure doesn’t hurt that this one is painted up in Vaillant livery.

4. Forest Green 1997 Porsche 911 Turbo S For Sale

This 993 Turbo S is allegedly one of only 183 built in this gorgeous Forest Green color. We’ve not seen one this color in person, but it sure looks right in photographs. With the big yellow calipers and bright silver twist wheels, the green really pops. There is something about a fast sports car in an innocuous color that really gets us excited. This Porsche 933 would be much less likely to be truly noticed on the street because it isn’t shouty or brash, but it has plenty of ‘go’ to back it up.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

5. 1975 Porsche 914-4 2.0L For Sale

We never thought we’d see the day when big rubber bumper 914s were selling for big money. For years the ’75 and ’76 cars were considered useless because they came saddled with large black beaks and butts that weigh a ton. We’ve seen countless number of these converted to early chrome-style bumpers or fitted with a variety of fiberglass bumper treatments with dramatically improved aesthetic result. In recent months we’ve heard the somewhat massaged term used for these cars become « aero bumpers » to give them a bit more appeal. This particular model looks really nice, but we’re still not sure we can justify the twenty-thousand dollar price tag.
