The new model was then presented at the IAA in Frankfurt on 11 September 1969. First there was the VW-Porsche 914/4 with the 1.7-litre four-cylinder engine that also powered the Volkswagen 411E, with a not exactly steep 80 hp. This vehicle was built by Karmann in Osnabrück. Then there was also the Porsche 914/6, which was delivered with the 2-litre six-cylinder from the Porsche 911T and was produced in Stuttgart. Both had in common the nickname “Volks-Porsche” (which was still positive) or “VoPo” (which was rather unfriendly, reminding of the People’s Police of the former GDR). In North America, Porsche sold the 914 under the name Porsche, with all the insignia (although the four-cylinder variant is called Volkswagen on the nameplate).

This Porsche 914 was built in 1971 and delivered signal orange. Ten years ago it was restored. At that time it was repainted to Zambezi green and upgraded with a 2.0l Engine.
In 2007 it received the ASI Certificate of Historical Relevance.
Since the restoration in 2012 the Car was barely used.
The vehicle is now on good overall condition which makes it a good daily Driver.
The interior is well maintained, but not perfect. Mechanically the Car is very sound and starts right up
The Engine is not the original 1.7 l anymore. It was upgraded with a 2.0 (GB type) of the 1973 models. This engine was changed from fuel injection to double-barrel carburetor.
