As stated, this car found it’s way to us via a part exchange from the new lady owner of an SS100 – only so much space in the garage you see!
It came over from the USA in the mid 2000s and was a little down at heel, though the cool metallic blue, would appear to be it’s original paint colour.
Since its time on the British Isles it’s had a full respray that’s very presentable, and also the all important RHD conversion, done by an engineer, using both new and original RHD 911 parts.
The space inside is good and once one acclimatises to the standard offset pedals that longtime Porsche owners will know all about, it really is a sensational little car that feels fiesty, fierce and fun all at the same time, zipping away from traffic lights and round roundabouts at speed.
The 2.0 engine gives this car more power than a standard 1.7 litre, and the history file has a good raft of paperwork from the car’s importation to it’s present day.
We have done a few hundred miles since we acquired it to make sure this little car was in good shape, and after a go through by our workshop the car is now ready for sale.
Definitely, these quintessentially 70s cars are coming into their own now, and with a 911 of the era now over £100,000 in comparable condition, it’s really quite good value too.
For non-believers in the 914 the proof is in the pudding (driving) as this feels from behind the original Momo Prototipo wheel, like a real little European supercar.
£22,500 with classic car and related part exchanges considered.
