Auction Block: 1975 Porsche 914

Sep 16, 2021

Category: Rides

Back in the late 1960s, Porsche and Volkswagen were in need of a new automobile that could replace their aging 912 and Karmann Ghia models. Still engaged in a partnership dating from the early ’30s, the two automakers agreed to come together for one last time and build a mid-engined two-seater sports car. What resulted was the 914.

Pictured before you is one such car: a gorgeous 1975 914 that’ll be crossing the block at RM Sotheby’s upcoming Open Roads auction. A true barn find, it was driven a mere 1,141 miles before it was put away in storage. In fact, it wasn’t until 2018 that the car resurfaced once again and went up for sale. As expected, then, it’s being offered in immaculate condition: religiously maintained and complete with all of its factory finishings — even the Nepal Orange paint. What’s more, this particular 914 features an optional “appearance group.” In addition to a leatherette steering wheel and some fog lights, this also means that it comes with a center armrest, a dash clock, and a boot for the gearshift. Powered by a 2.0L flat-four engine, it reads just a little over 1,300 miles now. You’ll be able to place a bid for yourself starting October 6th.
