Our car here started life as a real 1970 Porsche 914-6. After many years of excellent and fast road use, it was decided to take the car down the racing path, and that has been a long path! Many evolutions were undertaken to arrive at this final stage – a very fast car indeed.
The car was stripped to a shell when the original race conversion work was performed. GT flares were grafted on, and an extensive cage was custom built that extends into the front and rear trunk areas. This provides both safety and chassis stiffening for the overall package. There is an onboard fire system with nozzles in the front trunk, engine area, and passenger compartment. An ATL fuel cell resides up front in the factory location.
In addition to the added factory chassis stiffening kit, front suspension is handled via factory torsion bar, with upgraded 23mm sway bar. At the rear, coilovers handle the duties, featuring Bilstein dampening at all four corners.
The engine (no. 6451668, non-matching) has been through years of development and work to arrive at the final package – a 2.7 liter, twin plug, Weber carbs, with Electromotive ignition. 271 HP at the wheels on the dyno. Details below:
- 2.7L displacement
- Weber 46 IDA Carburetors
- Twin plug (Electromotive, crank fired)
- Elgin camshafts
- Pauter Rods
- Pauter lightened crankshaft, knife edged
- Boat tailed engine case
- Race headers exit to Phase 9 mufflers
- Large external oil cooler at front, feeding factory oil tank in the rear
In preparation for sale, a service and tune-up has been performed. Oil change, new battery, brake bias adjuster replaced, carb tune, new carb to intake gaskets, and a full compression and leak down test. The compression test was as follows – 140psi, 150psi, 145psi, 165psi, 160psi, 170psi. Leak down showed at 6%, 3%, 4%, 2%, 3%, 3%, respectively.
Power from the engine goes through a custom dual plate clutch and lightened flywheel assembly then into a factory 901 transmission. The transmission has been built up with shorter ratios for road course work, and is cooled via an external cooler at the rear of the car.
Proper 15”x7” Fuchs with Goodyear/Hoosier Racing slicks provide the traction, and the car comes with a 2nd full set of Cookie Cutter wheels with rain tread tires.
This car is well known in the local racing circles – it was enjoyable to make a few phone calls as this car was inbound and everyone said the same thing – “Oh, that car? That car is real f***ing fast.” Many a big block Ford/GM vintage racer has been upset by this 914-6.
The racing and prep pictures below span many years of reliable, active campaigning, and you will see subtle changes in the livery and graphics. Although recently mechanically serviced, please note that the seat harness, tires, and fire system service should be updated to meet current technical inspection.
Car is sold on bill of sale.
