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.
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
