Historical tips:
When Porsche decided to introduce the 914, they were just looking for a substitute to the 912. The mid-engine behind the passengers was the ideal solution for safety and performances. The model was developed together with Volkswagen with a flat four cylinder engine and obtained a great success, so Porsche tried to install a 6 cyilinder from the 911 T 2000: the 914/ 6 was born. Despite good performances, even better than the 911 2. 2T, the model didn’t get so much success so, after less than 3400 cars produced from 1969 to 71, Porsche decided to stop the production of the 914/ 6.

In 1970 the car obtained good results: 6th overall at the 24 hours f Le Mans (first in GT class), 5th and 6th in GT class at the 1000 kms of Nurburgring and 6 hours of Watkins Glen, 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the Marathon de la route at Nurburgring (an 86 hours non-stop race!). By the way privateers prefered the 911 S which in GTS >2000 class could fight for the overall positions; the third overall place at the 1971 Montecarlo Rally by Waldegaard was useless and Porsche decided to retire the car by official racing programs. Just some privateers carried on using the 914/ 6 on race, with good results.
