Volkswagen Assimilates Porsche — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

The Wolfsburg based carmaker agreed to buy the 50.1 percent stake in Porsche�s automotive business it doesn�t already, which marks the end of an interesting albeit complex and turbulent history. The history between the two companies goes way back. Porsche always had a close relationship with VW. For example, the first Volkswagen Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche.

1970 1976 Porsche 914 Market Profile — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

(note: this profile appeared in the Oct. 2005 issue. Photos courtesy Porsche NA) As the sixties progressed, a strengthening Mark and escalating prices presented a Porsche with a dilemma: Did it want to abandon the affordable sports car market due to cost pressures, or should it develop a new model to pick up the enthusiast the now expensive 911/912 left behind? The problem was, of course, that affordable translated into large production runs in order to achieve economies of scale. Porsche had neither the capacity nor the desire to produce that many cars. So, to make a long story short, they teamed up with Volkswagen, who was looking for a replacement for its aging Kharmann-Ghia. Together they ...

Porsche 914 Wikicars — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

Wikicars, a place to share your automotive knowledge Contents Strong Ties and a Departure From the Norm The idea that the project would be a joint effort between Volkswagen and Porsche had been decided in the mid-1960s, when Ferry Porsche met VW’s head honcho, Heinrich Nordhoff. The new car seemed perfect for both of them — it would provide Stuttgart with the desired entry level Porsche, and Wolfsburg with a new car which would broaden the appeal of the brand. The deal involved the two companies sharing development and building costs, sharing knowledge on handling and dynamics and mass-production. Also written into the contract was that the vehicle was to be supplied with both ...

1970’76 Porsche 914 Fours   Hemmings Motor News — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

Amidships amusement from Porsche on the rise Feature Article from Hemmings Motor News That the Porsche 914 is considered by certain cognoscenti as a Volkswagen is ultimately unfair. Yes, the car was a collaborative effort between Volkswagen and Porsche, and, yes, the car did wear Volkswagen and Porsche branding simultaneously in Europe. But the original plan was to build two versions of the car. The four-cylinder would be sold as a top-line Volkswagen, and the six sold as a Porsche. This was not how it played out in the United States. The six- and four-cylinder cars were sold beside each other in Porsche showrooms. Though the four- and six-cylinder cars appeared cut of the same cloth, they ...

The mid-engined VW-Porsche 914 was never popular — but it did lead to the Boxster, says David Wilkins It seemed like a good idea at the time. That seems to be the best explanation for the birth of the VW-Porsche 914, one the most interesting but least loved post-war German cars. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
