Footnotes

  • 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 Osnabruck. First seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 914/4 initially 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, which was installed at the Zuffenhausen factory where the 914/6 was finished off. Both cars employed all-independent suspension - a mixture of 911 and VW parts - to which were married four-wheel disc brakes and a five-speed gearbox.
    This left-hand drive 914 was delivered new to Italy on 1st June 1970. It came to the UK in 1986 and subsequently underwent a comprehensive restoration in 1997. The accompanying history file contains many invoices and bills from this time for work carried out and new parts fitted, as well as an invoice for an engine rebuild in 1991. Now finished in silver, the body remains in good order - the inner panels have been treated and are in very good condition - although there are a few minor paint blemishes. The front brake callipers were replaced in 2009 along with much of the interior.
    The car retains its original Fuchs wheels and original carburettor-fed 1.7 litre engine, producing some 80bhp, which received new plugs and an oil change in October 2009. We are advised that it runs well and has plenty of power. A good, clean example, the car is also supplied with Porsche GB dating letter, repair/handbook, fresh MoT and Swansea V5C registration document.
