"The 911's little brother", "People's Porsche", "Housewives' Porsche" - the Porsche 914 had to put up with many inglorious nicknames when it first put a tyre on the road in 1969. Fifty years later, these have become affectionate pet names at best, because the offspring of the marriage of convenience between Porsche and VW has long since driven its way into the hearts of its fans.
Jürgen Lewandowski, one of Germany's most renowned motoring journalists, has chronicled the history of this special sports car, which began in the late 1960s with a handshake between Ferry Porsche and Volkswagen boss Heinrich Nordhoff.
As an inexpensive entry-level model, the lightweight 914 was intended to succeed the 356 for Porsche and combine the expertise of the two major car manufacturers in production. Porsche's influences are reflected above all in the 914's design, which remains fresh to this day and is popular with Porsche fans and classic car collectors alike.
In this book you will find all the details, from the entire development and production history to entries, titles and victories in racing and technical data on all models and series.
