Through the years Porsche has been successful in creating head-turner vehicles that offer great power and performance. With its great engineering Porsche models are considered until now as one of the dependable, competent and aggressive vehicles both on the road and on the race track.
Since the discontinuance of the Porsche 912 in the market, the Porsche 914 was introduced to replace it. Manufactured from 1969 to 1975, is a sports car designed as a two seater with four cylinder engine and targa top. The Porsche 914 was Porsche's replacement to the 912 and Volkswagen's replacement to the Karmann Ghia. The idea to create the 914 basically began when Volkswagen was looking for a sportier car and Porsche was looking for a replacement for the 912 but wanted to use the 911 components.
The 914 is furnished with pop-up headlamps in contrast to other Porsche models. It also has a vertical back windshield and flat deck. Likewise, there is no back seat and the interior is designed simply but caring all the necessary components. The 1970-1976 Porsche 914 is built with a 4 cylinder 1.7, 1.8 or 2.0 liter engine that is able to deliver 80, 79 and 95 horsepower respectively. It also offers 5 speed manual transmissions with independent front with lower spring struts and control arms.
