Porsche 914 Paint Color Options & Samples

This post outlines all the color options for the Porsche 914 over its production life. We have official books and catalogs of all the color options for the Porsche 914 over the years. You can immediately see that the Porsche 914 and Porsche 914/6 models were available in a number of “fashionable for the 1970s” colors. Bright, floral and lots of fun is how we would describe Porsche 914 colors.

The chassis for the Porsche 914 and Porsche 914/6 model lines were all produced by Karmann in the same factory on the same production line. Subsequently, the color choices for the Porsche 914 and Porsche 914/6 models were also identical, although Porsche chose to assign different paint codes to the 1970 914/6 models. These codes all ended in “10,” denoting the black (Targa) roof, but the paint placards riveted in the door jams of the 914/6 cars omit this.

While reviewing the table we created below, notice that 1973 and 1974 Porsche 914 model years had the exact same color selection, but the name of paint code L13M was changed from “Saturn Yellow” to “Chrome Yellow.” Likewise, in 1975, paint code L13K changed from “Sunflower Yellow” to “Summer Yellow,” and code L64K had its name changed from “Zambezi Green” to “Forest Green.” We have no idea why this was done, but it is worth noting for your research.

The highly successful 914/6 GT track cars produced throughout the 1970 model year were frequently dressed in non-production paint codes (as race cars tend to be). Although we have no expectation toward covering the GT paint schemes, P914 welcomes and will gladly post any examples submitted (for the “cool factor” if nothing else).
