1970 Porsche 9146 For Sale by Auction



Believed resident in France all its life

Matching chassis, engine, colours

Five owners from new

Restored condition

Top speed for this model is over 120mph with 0-60 being accomplished in just under 10 seconds. In addition, the 6-cylinder version offers much more mid-range torque which makes it a more pleasurable package all round, particularly for driving conditions in the United States.

Car & Driver, comparing the Porsche 914/ 6 to the four-cylinder 914.

Porsche's strong historical links with Volkswagen we reaffirmed in 1969 with the launch of the Porsche-designed VW-Porsche 914, a mid-engined, Targa-top sports car to be assembled by Karmann of Osnabruck. At the time Volkswagen needed a new car to replace the ageing Karmann-Ghia, while Porsche was looking for another option to add to its line-up. First seen at the Frankfurt Auto Show, the 914/ 4 used the 1, 679cc, four-cylinder, air-cooled motor of the Volkswagen 411 while the 914/ 6 was powered by the Porsche 911T's 2. 0-litre six, which was installed at the Zuffenhausen factory where the 914/ 6 was finished off. Both cars employed all-independent suspension - a mixture of 911 and VW parts - to which were married four-wheel disc brakes and a five-speed gearbox.

The 914's reputation for perfect balance and excellent handling was somewhat marred by criticism that the four-cylinder version was too slow, though lack of speed was never a shortcoming of the 914/ 6. Porsche being Porsche there was, inevitably, a competition version of the 914/ 6

the 914/ 6GT

a small batch of which was built in 1970. The GT's engine was tuned for around 220bhp, while glassfibre panels and Plexiglas windows helped get the weight down, and dramatically flared arches accommodated wider wheels. In addition, the factory offered a GT kit that could be ordered with a regular 914/ 6 to be installed by designated Porsche dealers. Now increasingly sought-after, the 914/ 6 was a relatively short-lived model with only 3, 360 examples produced between 1970 and 1972.

A matching-numbers example (chassis, engine, colours), this particular Porsche 914/ 6 was delivered new to France by Sonauto and is believed to have stayed there ever since, enjoying five owners in that country. The car was first registered on 10th April 1970 and on 5th March 1976 was re-registered as '2803 RY 44'. On 24th November 1981 the registration was changed to '3122 RB 85'. In 2018 the Porsche passed to the fourth owner, who sold it to the current vendor.

Presented in very good restored condition (engine and coachwork) while retaining its original and likewise well presented interior, the car comes with copies of the previous registration documents; original and current French Carte Grise de Collection; Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirming matching numbers; photographs of the restoration; invoices for parts; and a condition report dating from 2019.
