GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1974 Porsche 914 Targa for purchase. The perfect balance and plenty of fun factor is how these 914 2.0L's were advertised by Porsche and is still true today with these fun little two seaters. The 914 offered 3 variations with the 4 cylinder, the 1.7 and 1.8 were inexpensive enough to attract the budget buyer, but the person that wanted to save money but still have a fun car to drive in all gears optioned for the 2.0L that had more low-end power and more total horsepower.
Just out of a private collection, this 3 owner, 1974 Porsche 914 offered here is a wonderful, highly original example with the exception of one repaint completed an estimated 15 years ago. The car is finished in its rare, desirable and original factory color, L96B Alaska Blue Metallic, over a very tidy, original tan interior with black roof, black side pillars and stripes. History indicates that the 2.0 liter motor is numbers matching, engine # GA013233, although we have not pulled a COA. The Other highlights include: 5 speed manual transmission, 914 style Fuchs aluminum wheels, console with VDO clock, temp and volt gauges, door pocket, square weave carpet, fog lights, stripe package etc.
The most recent owner purchased this car in 2006 and made every effort and a large investment to ensure that this 914 was mechanically fit and a fun car to drive. Today at 56360 miles, this is one of the best driving 914 2.0 liters that we have had on our floor. The car starts right up with no smoke, it pulls very strong in all gears, the suspension is tight and the brakes stop swiftly and true. In short, this 914 is a blast to drive, a quick an nimble car that puts a smile on your face as you maneuver through the twisties. Cosmetically, the paint remains very nice for its age still showing a deep gloss, this interior is wonderful featuring excellent original upholstery in all areas and a near perfect dash. The headlights operate perfectly, the radio works along with all the gauges as to the turn signals and brake lights, and the cigarette lighter works to power your favorite device. The underside and bottom of the car remain original and feature excellent inner rockers, original floors and an outstanding core structure. The engine and engine bay are very tidy, like many 2.0 liters, the fuel injection was removed and replaced with a carburetor, the fuel injection is complete and will be included with the sale.
The Porsche market continues to surge around the world, and the Porsche 914's have fallen into favor with collectors and driver enthusiasts alike. Their handling capabilities rival anything that is on the road today. The feel and driver feedback is direct creating a car and driver connection that cannot be duplicated in todays vehicles. The 2.0 liter is the most desirable of the 4 cylinder 914's, and well kept consistently maintained example such as the car offered here are in demand around the globe. This 914 2.0 liter is a great investment at the price offered here as well as a most excellent car to own and drive. Car comes documented with service history dating back to 1983.
