914-6 with VW badge

Recommended Posts

I'm not an expert on 914s but I thought the 914-6 was a Porsche only car that they did on their own after the collaboration with VW on the 914.

:lol:

My first Porsche was a MY74 914 2.0 that was an RoW car. All RoW 914's were co-badged (as far as I know) so my 914 2.0 also had the VW logo.

I'll see if I can did up a pic or two...

I don't know the history of the 914 series. I thought in Europe the 914 was sold as a VW and the 914-6 as a Porsche. In North America both versions were sold as Porsches, so there was no VW badge.

This is why I was suprised to see the 914-6 VW Porsche badge.

The lady who unloaded the car from a trailer said the car originally came from Germany where it had been raced. I could understand if it was a 914 with the VW badge, but not a 914-6. But from a google search I found images of 914-6 VW Porsche badges, so it must be original.

I have seen the car at other local events in the past but never noticed the badge. Next time I seen it I'm going to stick on my extra Boxster badge and take a picture.

Yep, it's the correct badge for a European 914-6. In Europe, they recognized that the car was a cooperative venture between Porsche and VW, whereas, in the US the car was badged as a Porsche with the 914-6 rear emblem. See the Badge thread over on the 914World.com site. Auto Atlanta just received a shipment of replacement 914-6-VW-Porsche badges from Germany, in case anyone wants to rebadge their US 914-6!

914-8.

Guess what is inside the engine compartment....

I would guess at blasphemy.....unless it's a 928 V8. 8^)

Not really. ;) There are lots of engines stuffed into 914s. From Subaru to big Porsche flat 6s to Chevy V8s. Altho I think I remember one 928, but that might have been in a 944 (or maybe it was a 914).

Oh, and there are some killer Type IV engines. Search Jake Raby.

I always thought a 912 engine would have been great, but never saw it done.

There were a few 914-8 built by the factory with a 908 boxer 8 too, but I bet thats not one. I dont have any problems with whatever people choose to run though ,cause Ive commited auto blasphemy on occasion.
