This car was built for a customer by a well-known senior Porsche technician in SE Michigan during the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, then bought and owned by him until last year. All the work done on it over the years has been first rate, and it is a strong performer.
Its original 2.0L engine was bored and stroked to a displacement of 2.7L, using new Mahle pistons and cylinders, with Carillo rods and a reinforced case, counterbalanced crankshaft, reworked heads with ported intake and exhaust, larger valves by (FAT Performance in CA), and dual Dellorto carburetors, with ignition provided by a Pertronix distributor & coil. The five speed “dogleg” transmission has also been rebuilt. This 914 has gobs of torque in any gear, and is a hoot to drive.
Recent (12/2019) maintenance and improvements include an engine out service with gasket replacements (oil sump, intake & exhaust manifold, muffler, valve covers), new engine heater hose, axle joints & boots (inner & outer), torsion bar end seals, new ignition wires, fuel lines, speedometer cable, shift lever boot and new rubber roof rests & holders in the rear trunk. The battery was relocated to the front trunk, with a new custom tray, and the shifter was lengthened for easier gear change. A Kenwood Bluetooth audio system and speakers were added.
The body is in excellent condition, with no rust. Earlier, the car underwent a complete restoration, was media blasted down to bare metal and refinished in the Tropical Green color, all done by a well-known local body shop with an excellent reputation. The chassis has adjustable sway bars front and rear and adjustable shock absorbers. The rear body structure, rear trailing arms and control arms have been reinforced.
The interior has just been treated to new carpet and overall is in superb condition. Dash mounted gauges include oil pressure, oil temperature, two cylinder head temperature gauges (one for each bank) and a voltmeter.
Upon delivery to our dealership in GA, we commissioned a local Porsche repair shop to do a complete brake overhaul. The car is road ready!
