Porsche 914 — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

Porsche 914: A Child of the Porsche-Volkswagen Union The link between Porsche and Volkswagen is unmistakable. Other than currently being sister companies, their historical roots are strongly intertwined. First, the founder of Porsche, Ferdinand Porsche, is the main man responsible for the creation of the Volkswagen Beetle, which ended up becoming one of the most successful cars in the car history. Second, the 356 and the 911, 2 of Porsche’s greatest creations, have blueprints partially derived from the Beetle’s design. Because of these links, it is highly conceivable that these 2 motoring giants have joined forces for some projects. And arguably, their most popular hook-up is the ...

Sports Car Face Plant: Porsche 914 Share on Facebook Jointly developed between Porsche and Volkswagen, and intended to replace one vehicle in each manufacturer’s lineup, the Porsche 914 should’ve been an early triumph for Ferdinand Piëch. However, due to poor marketing, infighting between the Porsche and Piëch families, s-l-o-w performance, and a high price, the 914 never reached its full potential. By the late 1960s, Volkswagen’s Karmann-Ghia had run its course. Over at Porsche, the 911 was setting the pace, but the four-cylinder Porsche 912 – with its aging powerplant from the 356C – never took off, and the 911 was twice as expensive as the car it replaced. Volkswagen needed ...

Customer Reviews About This Model The 914 was designed to take Porsche back to its 356 roots as a marketer of inexpensive sports cars. From its inception, the new Porsche entry-level car was meant to share components with Volkswagen models. At the time, much of VW’s development work was still being done by Porsche, so the arrangement made perfect financial sense. And since VW needed a replacement for its Karmann Ghia sports.

Legendary cars Porsche 914 (19691976) — Volkswagen-Porsche 914

Porsche 914 (1969-1976) When in 2002 presented the Cayenne uproar among fans of the Porsche brand. A new car developed in collaboration with Volkswagen was the SUV. A similar fracas took place in 1969 when it also in cooperation with the manufacturer designed the Beetle model 914 — relatively cheap, two-door sports car, which in its basic version was equipped with a propulsion unit straight from VW. There have been allegations that the exclusive German brand wants to make another manufacturer producing cars for everyone. Some still argue that the 914-particle is not a Porsche. But Volkswagen is actually in disguise? Let’s start with the basic information: Anywhere outside the ...

1969-1975 Porsche 914: The People’s Porsh 1971 Porsche 914/6 The story of Porsche’s entry-level 914 reads much like a prime time drama in many ways.  Porsche had a long-standing agreement with Volkswagen to co-develop cars. As the 60’s was coming to an end, both companies needed new products; Porsche and entry level sports car and Volkswagen a range toping model. Although not a formal agreement, it had been a sort of pact between the two companies since before WWII. The agreement was about to expire with Porsche needing to fulfill one last obligation. Payback would come in the form of Porsche developing a small car with VW. All was going well until VW ‘s chairman died was replaced ...

Porsche 914 Written by Tim Suddard H ow could something so right have gone so wrong? That’s the question regarding the infamous Porsche 914. Born out of confusion, it had some major design flaws that were later corrected, but was plagued by bad press throughout its brief and turbulent life. It’s a wonder that roughly 120,000 were sold. A brief review of the history of this Porsche model, and an hour behind the wheel of one, however, will remove all doubts as to why the 914 has risen from ignominy to become a favorite among vintage motorsports enthusiasts. Born Out of Confusion Porsche plus Volkswagen was not a marriage made in heaven. In the late 1960s, Porsche wanted to deepen its ...

Classic Concepts: 1970 Porsche 914/6 Murène by Heuliez These days, Brissonneau Lotz builds industrial crane parts, but in the late sixties the French company operated as an automotive coachbuilder and had what would turn out to be two of the 20th Century’s most successful transport designers on its payroll. One was Paul Bracq, who subsequently went on to become head of design at BMW and sire the legendary BMW Turbo concept of 1972. The other was Jacques Cooper, who not only collaborated with Bracq to create the first TGV turbotrain during their time together at BL, but also penned a new shell for the VW-Porsche 914/6 during his stint there. As many will know, the 914/6 was a joint collaboration ...

Porsche 914 – Battle of the Badges Author: Erik Delbuono – ECR Staff Writer   Photos: Various Sources ECR Exclusive – For those who are unaware, the relationship between Volkswagen and Porsche dates back to Porsches founding.  Design, tooling and facilities had been shared and ideas collaborated.  So, in the 60’s, Porsche was developing a replacement for the 912 and Volkswagen a successor to the Karmann Ghia. The agreement between Porsche and Volkswagen was to originally sell a four cylinder model as a Volkswagen and at 6 cylinder version as a Porsche.  That idea however was dismissed as having too much risk in terms of consumer acceptance.  Instead, Porsche sold both a 4 and ...
