1970 Porsche 914-6 Race Car

• VIN 914043XXXX
• Delivered on May 1, 1970

This is a factory 914-6, finished in dark blue metallic, which was a part of a large collection and eventually was converted to a type 916 look for the racetrack. The "916" was a performance 914-6 style variant that was first introduced in 1972 at the Paris Auto Salon and featured flared fenders, a steel roof for rigidity, and fiberglass bumpers painted body color.

This 914-6 has steel fenders (front and rear) along with a steel rear engine lid, but to save weight, all the other panels are fiberglass including: the rear decklid, the front hood, both doors, and the front and rear bumpers. The bumpers and fenders are of a type-916 look for the racetrack and it has been fitted with a battery cutoff. The Fuch alloy wheels are 7" x 15" front and 8" x 15" in the rear with Hoosier 205/50 ZR15 and 225/45 ZR15 slick tires.

The interior has been completely stripped and converted to a racing cockpit. It features an integrated roll bar, VDO instrumentation, a single Scheel racing seat, Simpson racing harness, and a fire extinguisher system.

Mechanically powered by a 911T 2.0-liter flat-six. The original motor has been replaced with a type 901/16, 911T 2.0L engine # 6195047 that runs very strong. It is paired with a type 914/01 5-speed manual transmission, limited-slip differential, and modified gear ratios. The car's suspension setup utilizes adjustable Koni shocks both front and rear as well as front and rear sway bars. A rear camber truss steel tower is additionally fitted. The car's braking system utilizes stock 911S brakes with aluminum calipers in the front. Additional mechanical components include a front-mounted oil cooler, a fuel safe tank along with an MSD ignition, a Mallory ignition high-performance fuel filter, and a fuel pump.

This 914-6 race car, has a clear title and is eligible for racing in Group 8 in HSR, SVRA, and VARA. Raced at the Merrill Lynch Brian Redman International Challenge in 1998, 1999, and 2001, and last raced at Road America approximately 12 years ago. It comes with the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and the original maintenance booklet. It is rare to find a factory 914-6 that is set up for the racetrack.
