Is That Yellow? 1972 Porsche 914 2.0

The Porsche 914 is one of the few affordable classics with the drivetrain with a sporty mid-rear setup and it has finally shed some of the "that's not a real Porsche" snobbery that held it back for years -- get yours before the prices jump up...or you might be too late.  Find this 1972 Porsche 914 offered for $9000 in Seymour, CT via craigslist. From Cory.

 From the seller:
1972 Porsche 914 in nice solid condition. 81,000 Some work recently done. Not presently running as to fuel injection and storage . Was a garaged and cared for vehicle. 4 cylinder fuel injected, 5 speed. Was upgraded to a 2.0 kit installed. All vin numbers match and all factory stickers are in place.

See a better car to park on your porch?


  1. Prices have already shot up in just the past couple years. Remember Doug Malkewicki's one-owner car? It went for a song ($6700 in 2013). Now you're lucky to find a solid driver for $9k. The later 2.0L cars are approaching $20k. We're too late!!!1!

  2. I think that is supposed to be Gold Metallic - L97G , but it's kind of dirty and reflecting a lot of green grass.

  3. Looks like I'm going to have to wait until 2048 for my Boxster to become desirable. Shucks.

  4. To me, the 914 has always been the best looking Porsche.

  5. If that is original paint, the car appears to be in outstanding rust-free condition. For me, that makes this deal interesting. Currently-not-running status however makes it a significant risk. This would be a tough one. Does the "2.0 kitted" engine affect value, vs an actual original 2.0 car?

  6. I've always been a fan of these. The lines are perfectly simple and I dig the minimalist interior. Black on black please... with a dash of panache.
