Description:

1973 Porsche 914

The 914 was produced for seven model years (1970 to 1976) undergoing some minor but still significant changes along the way. In 1970 and 1971 Porsche offered the 914 and the 914/6. All the cars had non-adjustable passenger seats with a tethered adjustable footrest in place of a seat adjuster. 1972 914s weren't a whole lot different from the 1970 and 1971 cars but included a passenger seat adjustment air vents in the dashboard and improved insulation and sound deadening. It was also the final year for the 914/6. 1973 was the first year for major improvement in the 914. When the 914/6 was dropped it was replaced with the optional 914 2.0 with a boost of 15 horsepower. Early 914s had a reputation for sloppy shifting thanks to the shift mechanism being mounted on the very tail of the transmission two thirds of the car away from the actual shifter but 1973 ushered in a new "side-shift" shift mechanism that worked much better than the early "tail-shift" transmissions. While the Appearance Group remained optional it was included on almost all 1973 914s sold in the United States. The group included chrome bumpers vinyl and aluminum rollbar trim dual horns foglamps cast Pedrini (1.7-liter) or Fuchs (2.0-liter) forged-aluminum wheels leather steering wheel and shift boot trim and pile carpeting as well as a center console with an armrest and storage area and anti-roll bars on 2.0-liter cars. Engines have 2.0-liter four-cylinder: 95 @ 4900.This car is a two owner 914 2.0. The car is a blast to drive and the engine runs great!
