Check this sucker out.  You folks know I am a car nut, I love me some muscle cars, pre war cars, rat rods and old trucks and if I had the money I’d have one of each.  However,  I hold a special place in my heart for all things Porsche. This car here is a rare bird. There have been many 914/6 replicas but to find a real one is pretty unusual. To find one in New England is even more unusual. I do know of a 914 “hoarder” in R.I. That has at least 5 914’s and two of them are 6’s. So they are out there. For those of you that don’t know, the 914 was one of the few “bastard” children born by Porsche, I own one of the others, the 944. The 914’s came equipped early on with 1.7L flat fours and there was a 1.8L and later on finally a 2.0L. Then there was the 914/6. The /6 designates it as being equipped with a flat six 911 engine and if you have ever had the pleasure of riding in a four banger, the six would blow your mind. I believe the value of this car will increase Check it out on Barnfinds.com here Real Deal: 1970 Porsche 914-6, it’s up for auction on our favorite second most favorite “get scammed” site, eBay. Obviously it will need some restoration work, but imagine the faces on all the Porsche 911 and BMW M3 drivers when you whoop their asses in auto cross with a flat six powered go kart like this one?
