For Sale: 1973 Porsche 914 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Sleek, nimble, and absolutely fun, this 1973 Porsche 914 reminds you why the Germans build the best driver's machines.


Saturn Yellow is a cool paint name, and the trim tag tells us it's factory-correct. It's the right choice for a 914 because black goes great with yellow, and darkness is a big part of the car's design. The bumpers, rockers, and mid-engine grille are all done in black. Plus, the roof is a terrific design that has the 1970s premium vinyl top style and incorporates a removable targa top. As you look over the whole car, you're going to see a driver-quality style, and that means it's a driver-ready machine. So there's plenty of room for improvement, but it's the right style for carefree enjoyment on a whim. You'll also appreciate the details that are already in place, like the well-fitting targa top, modern tires, and bright 15-inch alloy wheels.


The clean full black interior goes well with the exterior color combo, and so you just know this Porsche loves to be open to the world. Nicely sculpted bucket seats, the classic Porsche sports steering wheel, and full gauges with a large tach in the center are all about making sure you feel the enthusiast's passion from the moment you sit down. Plus, two trunks mean you can store the targa top and still have room for some luggage. So it's ready for a full back roads weekend trip.


Under the rear hatch is the 1.7-liter air-cooled flat-four. The low center of gravity and the mid-mounted engine are the kind of setup that would make race cars jealous. And as you look at this powerhouse, you'll notice it now is altered for a dual set of Weber two-barrel carburetors. It makes for a simpler setup than the fuel injection, and it also offers decent performance. So it's the kind of setup that's ideal for those who love to tinker on Saturday morning so that there's extra power unleashed for driving on Saturday night. And the real secret to enjoying the motor is the full control you get from the five-speed manual transmission. What has kept the 914 so desirable for a half-century is that Porsche only knows how to build the best driving machine. A well-engineered fully independent suspension, nimble steering, and four-wheel disc brakes is exactly the right recipe for a car that you're going to want to drive.


Complete with the owner's manual, this is the Porsche that was made for driving. You'll likely find areas to improve and personalize, but that fundamental feel of nimble pure driver's passion is there from the moment you twist the key. Call today!!!
