The 916 was basically a 914/6 M471 (widebody) with welded steel roof (so, a coupé), with bigger engine and luxurious interior. The welded steel roof was previously used on the 1969 914/8 of Ferry Porsche. Only eleven 916 cars were made, the first prototype was based on the 1971 model year 914/6 and the rest were 1972 models. The engines came from the 1972 model 911 S 2.4 and from the 1973 model 911 Carrera RS 2.7.

Chassis numbers:
Model year 1971: 9141430195 (prototype with 914/6 chassis number)
Model year 1972: 9142330011 – 9142330020 (original 916 chassis numbers, not of 914/6)
