The 914 developed from a co-operation of and Porsche. The central engine car smiled at during lifetimes was for 120.000-mal in model years (beginning autumn 1969) 1976 scarcely.

Most of the models run had a 1.7 litre Volkswagen with 59 KW (80 HP) behind the seats as execution (914/4) . The Porsche (914/6) had 81 KW (110 HP) strong 2.0 six cylinder double-piston engine 911 T. outstanding features 914 is the construction as central engine sports with air-cooled double-piston and the Targa roof, which can be away in the rear trunk.

of the development

In the second half of the years VOLKSWAGEN looked for for a model as a successor on the beetle are and thus as technical became to valid Karmann Ghia. was missing an inexpensive entrance there to 1965 of the 356 was adjusted and the 912 a abgespeckter 911er with 90 HP weak four-cylinder of the 356C opposite the sports cars of the not to maintain ground could.

Porsche and the Volkswagen boss connected closely with the family northhope agreed by impact that Porsche part with its sports car in the development of a common model, should be driven out however as Volkswagen variant and as Porsche VOLKSWAGEN would provide a high paragraph for small costs; Porsche should be over the small unit prices for the development, attainable The manufacturing of the bodies should place with Karmann.

It looked thus like a Win Win business. As at the 1. March 1968 the 914-Prototyp was presented, was northhopes heavily gets sick. He on 12 April 1968. His successor VOLKSWAGEN, Kurt Lotz, was not the Porsche dynasty connecting ELT and is the agreement between northhopes and Porsche not to have recognized. It is to been the opinion, VOLKSWAGEN has all at the body, why Porsche would it if necessary against participation in expenses. The price and marketing 914 thereby before beginning of production had already failed.

compromise created VOLKSWAGEN and at the beginning of of 1969 for marketing and 914 the Volkswagen Porsche marketing GmbH (briefly VG ), which soon of Stuttgart Porsche in the nearby Ludwigsburg. This is the why work vehicles of the 914/4 in are to be seen LB mostly with the .

To year 1973 most take place in the history The most apparent one was the attitude of the In response VOLKSWAGEN supplemented its likewise by one 2.0 l large four-cylinder, carried out with the D-Jetronic 74 KW HP). It reached approximately the performances like 10 HP stronger, but 40 kg heavier 914/6.

With the of the 914/6 also the designation was void for the four-cylinder; he was called now 914,1,7 and/or 914,2.0. to model year 1973 other things as very criticized transmissions were improved and the rigid passenger by an adjustable replaced.
