Born from a misconceived concept by Porsche to build an affordable sports car for the masses, the 914 was launched in 1969 using a Karmann-built targa top. Using the Volkswagen sourced VW 411 motor (producing 80bhp), its top speed was a laclustre 107mph / 171kmh.

Later versions had the Porsche sourced 2-liter unit, and there was even a 6 cylinder model using the Porsche flat 6 motor (however this was short lived).

Easily dismissed, the 914 did have very good road manners, and the build quality was the equal of anything else Porsche was building at the time.
