Could this be the most powerful 914 ever?
Long before there was the Porsche Boxster, there was the Porsche 914. The targa-topped two-seat 914 was produced between 1969 and 1976 and was the result of a collaboration between Volkswagen and Porsche. The 914 was originally powered by a 1.7-liter flat-four Volkswagen air-cooled engine that produced 79 hp. Later models were powered by a 2.0-liter engine that produced 98 hp. However, the model pictured here, that was recently put up for sale, has something very special under the hood.
This unique custom 914 is powered by a 350 cu. in. small block Chevrolet V8 engine. Although the owner of this special Porsche has not listed the exact horsepower output of the car, this particular Chevy V8 can produce a minimum of 145 hp and a maximum of 370 hp. It’s safe to assume that this 914 can produce something in between these two numbers. Whatever the case may be, it’s a far cry from the 98 hp produced by the original engine. In addition to the engine swap, this Porsche also has plenty of other add-ons, including full custom body work, 15x8 original Fuch alloy wheels, a custom dashboard and adjustable coil over rear springs. This one of a kind custom classic Porsche can be all yours for $29,000.
