Works 914/6 GT: Porsche’s Blood Orange

Works Porsche 914/6 GT on track at Silverstone circuit

The 914/6 was the Porsche-engined version of the 914, the joint venture sports car designed by Porsche and built at Karmann using mostly VW running gear. It was intended by VW to be a successor to the Karmann Ghia (and by Porsche to be an entry level model to replace the 912). The 914/6s were completed at Zuffenhausen, where a 110bhp flat-six was fitted; following the 914’s launch in 1969, Porsche quickly began preparing a competition version.

An early development car, which, despite having full FIA homologation, was never used in competition, chassis 143 0137 was spotted some years ago by early Porsche specialist Mick Pacey.
