Perceived as a reasonably priced entry level model for Porsche, the 914's early history was blighted by political problems with VW’s new management. However, by the end of production, almost 119,000 examples had been sold. This book records the full international story of the mid-engined 914, from concept through to the final production car, illustrated throughout with contemporary material. Today the 914 is an affordable and practical classic.
Launched in 1969, the 914 series went through many problems and many changes before production came to an end in 1976. It was constantly improved during its short life, but time just ran out for the model. It is interesting to note that until the Boxster made its debut, it remained Porsche’s only mid-engined production car, although the company’s racing models had been built with this layout for some years.The 914 also had a fine competition history - something that is often overlooked or run down because it wasn’t as brilliant as that of the 911’s. But by normal standards, it was indeed a fine history. There were also a large number of specials built on the 914 chassis, and both of these aspects have been covered in detail.The 914 series has often been cited as the forgotten Porsche, but there is a growing band of enthusiasts who only have eyes for the model. The handling is of course a major factor contributing towards the enjoyment of the type, but a large number of people like the styling, and the fact that for so many years this was the most affordable of all Porsches to own and run.Now the times have changed and the model has appreciated, not only in value, but in terms of awareness as well. The 914/6 has become particularly desirable, and it is hoped that this book will go some way towards explaining the 914‘s various merits.
Chapters featuring the 914/6 GT and its racing success, plus motorsport in the 1970s and an enthralling chapter on numerous 914 specials make this a book I'll be delving into for some time to come. For the 914 fanatic, it's a book for the bedside rather than the workshop, but none the poorer for that in being a highly entertaining read.
