An excellent opportunity to acquire an outstanding 914-6 in a very desirable color combination. History Porsche's 914-6 featured a carbureted 110 bhp, 2.0 L flat-6 engine from the 1969 911T, which was placed in front of a version of the 1969 911's 901 gearbox configured for a mid-engine sports car. Karmann manufactured the rolling chassis at their plant, completing Volkswagen production in-house or delivering versions to Porsche for their final assembly. The 914-6 models used lower gear ratios and high brake gearing in order to try to overcome the greater weight of the six-cylinder engine along with higher power output. They also featured five-lug wheels and ignition on the left side of the steering wheel. Suspension and handling were otherwise mostly the same.
