The here offered 914/4 is typical for its time as until 1972 the 914/6 was built: its 2-liter 4-cylinder was tuned from 100 hp to 200 hp in series, with that it had more capacity than the 6-cylinder boxer and at the same time it was lighter. Such enhanced 914/4 are an insider’s tip amongst enthusiasts. The model was also called Targa for its removable roof center part.
Porsche built the 914 model in cooperation with Volkswagen from 1969 to 1976. Almost 120,000 units were built. It was the first mass-produced car with a midship engine, which, as well as the targa rooftop, is its main characteristic feature. As the handbrake is left of the driver's seat, a third seat can be insert between the two bucket seats. US models were not delivered with a Porsche emblem on the front hood, instead Porsche dealers installed it before customers collected their cars. (kre)
