I fancy something to mess around with and i like the thought of something different and a 914 would be a great little car for pottering around town.
Where do I start???..
Any constructive help appreciated Embarassed

Oh and a little bit of piss taking is ok too! Very Happy

I'd start with an American import unless you can find one over here at the right price and not too far gone.

This is probably not a bad place to start when they've got them in: http://www.beverlyhillscarclub.com/inventory.htm

Actually I'm liking these the more I see them and wouldn't mind picking one up before the prices start getting out of hand Rolling Eyes

I concur. Those things are as cool as a very cool thing. Especially the 914-6.

I have had an interest in these for many years and I think the styling is looking ok now.At the money they have to be worth a punt.
They are sure to set sail soon!

I admitted my secret (of about 20 years) last week about the need for one of these, BUT if I get more time on my hands I'd like to fit Boxster running gear to one. Prices are expensive from when I was looking at buying a Cali import as they were about £1000, they are about 10K for a reasonalble RHD at the moment.

I don't get it, The whole thing is Aesthetically repulsive, it's like some visually challenged German in the 1960's looked at a Lotus Elan and thought "Hey, I could make something similar, yet so mind numbingly ghastly that even people that love the brand will pretend it never existed" and the (presumably boss eyed) designer next to him said "Yes, lets make a visual abortion of a car that's miles away from what we do best just to see if people really will buy a turd with the name Porsche on it".

The reason the designers of this four wheeled vomit are not well known, is because shortly after completing this pile of rancid automotive bile, they poked out their eyes with their pencils and fed themselves into the shredder.
nooo


It's not for me, in a herpes kind of way.

Chief, If I was given the choice between having to own one of these or shagging you, then you would be a wise man to start running...

I think the point is you cant polish a turd but you can roll it in glitter Grin

This guy loves his 914-6

Admittedly the looks aren't to everyones taste (One things for sure is that clarkycat wants one Grin ). However that 914-6 in that vid looks like a really fun little car to drive especially with no roof Cool
Makes a good noise too Thumb

And if there was a world shortage of such cars then everyone would want a 914, but there isn't, and they don't. Because you can buy "a really fun little car to drive especially with no roof" from virtually every decade in the last century, you can choose from many different manufacturers, from many different engine sizes and from almost any price range.

The 914 is that meal, you know, when you forgot to shop and all the stuff left in the fridge and cupboards is the stuff you liked least. It was on your list because it seemed a good idea, but you ate everything else first.

It's the honesty you hide from yourself, sat eating a plate of brown rice, curried beans and chilli chutney - you thought it would be a good idea, but when nobody else was around, you chose everything else first because you desired it more.

The 914, the kind of council house leftover meal that makes you wince that you had any part to play in it's purchase.
nooo

Yes but I don't like smallpox. Those are the reasons why I like it.

There is a minority of people who like these cars and that's why they are not so popular but those people are entitled to have those thoughts as you are yours.

Didn't say I'd buy one if the money was mine. Just that it looked like a fun little drive Thumb
