According to the Certificate of Authenticity, this 914-6 was originally finished in Signal Orange (color code 1410) with a Black leatherette/basketweave interior. Optioned from the factory with USA equipment and originally imported to Orangeburg, New York. The earliest known history of this 914-6 begins on January 7, 1990, when the past owner purchased this 914-6 for $12,000 from Dr. Holsinger. The past owner had this 914-6 in his collection for the next 30 years until it was purchased by European Collectibles.

This is a very straight and rust-free example with excellent gaps and panel fit. Finished in a very unique color Signal Orange. The paintwork is in very nice overall condition with only a few paint imperfections. The interior is original with nice upholstery, carpets, dash, VDO instrumentation, Becker Europa Radio, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Mechanically, this 914-6 runs perfectly with a numbers-matching 2.0-liter flat-six (type 901/38) rated at 110 horsepower, a smooth-shifting 5-speed 901 manual dogleg transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes. The wheels are 15" x 5.5? Mahle (Gas Burner) rims with Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S 195 65R 15 tires. Complete with Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, original owner's manual, jack, and spare tire. An excellent opportunity to acquire an outstanding 914-6 in a very desirable color combination.

History
Porsche's 914-6 featured a carbureted 110 bhp, 2.0 L flat-6 engine from the 1969 911T, which was placed in front of a version of the 1969 911's "901" gearbox configured for a mid-engine sports car. Karmann manufactured the rolling chassis at their plant, completing Volkswagen production in-house or delivering versions to Porsche for their final assembly. The 914-6 models used lower gear ratios and high brake gearing in order to try to overcome the greater weight of the six-cylinder engine along with higher power output. They also featured five-lug wheels and ignition on the left side of the steering wheel. Suspension and handling were otherwise mostly the same.
