10 To Buy Now, Before They Are Out Of Part 6 – Porsche 914

Porsche 914

is part six of a ten part series 10 Porsches that are currently a reasonable budget, but that may very valuable in the future. In one we covered the Porsche 911 SC . in part two we the 911 Carrera 3.2 . in part three we the 911 (993) . in part four we the 911 (964) and in part five we the 912 . This post will the Porsche 914 .

Below is the list of that will be covered in posts. Please note the order of the Porsches in the below is the order that they be covered, but not necessarily the order of is more likely to become

We now start cover some of the cars (I count the 912 in with the 911 as it shares most things for the engine which is essentially the as in the late 356) and we start the Porsche 914 . The car was a joint venture Volkswagen and Porsche with the of giving VW a sporty car to replace the Ghia and Porsche an entry car. The original intent was to a 4-cylinder car that would be by VW and a 6-cylinder higher performing car would be sold by Porsche.

of the United States the 914 was sold as a but in the U.S. it was marketed as a Porsche. of the cars sold had a Volkswagen engine that range 1.7-liters up to a more powerful engine. There were a few thousand 914′s (known as the that had a Porsche flat-six and that also had a different and suspension. Because of this 914-6s are very desirable and to their low production numbers demand a premium.

The car’s styling is controversial people either loving it or it. For us it is styling that grows on you and as the car it looks more beautiful. The is classic ’60s and ’70s that was very bold at the

The 914 series was the first mid-engined production car made by the German (they had made other cars, but no major production and provided more neutral than the 911 or 912. The cars offer a lot of power, but they don’t weigh very so they still provide of performance. Of course where the 914 comes alive is in the corners and are often autocrossed with a amount of success.

When looking at buying a 914 there are a few things to consider. about if you want an early car a smaller engine or a later car a bit more power. Another to think about is that of the later cars have impact bumpers, so they are desirable to many buyers. The spot is an earlier car with the engine but without the impact

Values of 914s are all over the with some going as low as and as much as $60,000. The upper end of the is where you would find a 914-6 and unless you are good at car we would be careful of a car at the low end of the scale. In for a good 914 you are looking in the $10,00-$25,000 depending on mileage, condition, size and year. We’ve some very good driver cars for much than $10,000 that had the engine (one was just and was well maintained by a local Club of America member), but for a desirable model that is in condition expect to pay a bit more.

looking into buying a 914 for rust, especially in the wheel and around the battery tray. It is a very good idea to a pre-purchase inspection by a mechanic knows the 914 well.

Prices of many 914s already started to climb and we the less desirable cars start to climb in the near Expect to see all models go up in price the next 10 years. While the displacement cars will take more that 10 to start to get out of the reach of the average the more desirable cars likely be out of reach fairly We think if you want a more Porsche 914 that now is the time to buy the prices keep going up.

As all Porsches if you choose to buy a 914 and it doesn’t go up in you still have a great fun to drive sports car.
