In 1973, Porsche replaced the 914-6 flagship with a new 2.0-liter engine version of the model that won Motor Trend’s Import Car of the Year in 1970. The new fuel-injected flat four-cylinder developed 99 hp and 118 pound-feet of torque, equaling the motive force of the venerated flat-six it replaced. This beautifully restored 914 from the model’s final year of production is an exceptional example of the increasingly collectible Porsche.

According to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, this 914 2.0 completed assembly in late January 1976 and was specified for the US. It was originally finished in Malaga Red over a dark red tartan cloth interior and factory equipped with Sport equipment, including stabilizers and a spoiler, light metal wheels, tinted side glass, and intermittent wipers. Currently trimmed with a black vinyl interior complemented with dark red tartan cloth seat inserts, and retaining its original 2.0-liter engine, this Porsche was owned for many years by marque enthusiast Robert Avery. According to the consignor, the 914 benefits from single ownership for most of its life and retains most of its original factory paint, except for the doors and decklid. The odometer currently reads 33,892 miles and is believed to be original mileage.

The Porsche received significant mechanical attention over the last few years, including new push rod tube seals and a rebuild of the brake calipers in 2017. In 2019 the front brakes were further serviced with new pads and rotors, as illustrated by invoices on file. The consignor reports the car is mechanically superb and a delight to drive.

This beautifully presented 914 2.0 would make a fantastic addition to any marque collection, ideal for display at Porsche events or enjoyment on the open road for its brisk performance and capable handling.
