1973 Porsche 914
The affordable, fun, and nimble German sportscar has really come into its own on the classic market. This 1973 Porsche 914 has a great color combo, the right features (including A/C), and the unmistakable feeling of a great driving machine engineered in Stuttgart. And it's all available today at an obtainable price.
The design of the 914 was one of the most interesting Porsche ever made. It follows the same principal of the 911 that made sure the tall fender line helped you understand where the front edges of the car were. But then it adds a completely sleek front end with the aid of pop up headlights. Black seems to be the ideal color for this coupe. Combined with the black vinyl roll bar and black targa roof, this has the same 70s-style classic appeal that you would love to have in a Detroit muscle car just in a much sleeker and nimbler package. Plus, the hue coordinates nicely with the lighter elements such as the chrome bumpers and optional 15-inch Pedrini wheels. And if you're a competition Porsche fan, you'll love the Pegasus decals everyone else can just peel them off with no damage underneath.
The black interior combines with the exterior paint and roof to give you the ultra-desirable triple-black total package. The seats, door panels, and dash all look stock and well maintained. You get all the right features, including the optional center console and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. And we especially like to see the dealer-installed air conditioning using modern R134a refrigerant. That means you can stay cool while enjoying open-top motoring deep into the summer months. But more than great features, this is a true driver's car at its heart. You get the classic Porsche sports steering wheel, and a gearbox that is perfectly positioned for your right hand. And Porsche's race-ready sensibilities means the tachometer is directly in front of you. The rest of the instruments surround this in their own clearly marked pods to give you a comprehensive view of what's going on in the engine bay.
You're looking at the original powerplant for this coupe, and the condition and the maintenance records tell us this has been cared for correctly. The mileage is even believed to be accurate. With the 914, it's hard not to make comparisons to the modern Porsche Boxster. After all, the 2.0-liter flat-four motor is mounted in the center to give you the best balance on the road. And just like the Boxster, this setup also yields two trunks. You get to make the most out of this powerplant thanks to fuel-injection and the control that comes from a five-speed manual transmission. With a car this well-balanced, you'll also love the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. It makes for a total package that will have you constantly looking for the long and winding road home.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and service manuals. Porsche made affordability exciting with the 914, and this nicely preserved classic is ready to be taken home right now by the first one to grab this deal. Call today!!!
