BaT Auction: Modified 1972 Porsche 914 3.2L
This 1972 Porsche 914 is a modified example finished in Signal Orange and powered by a 3.2L flat-six and 5-speed 915 gearbox sourced from a 1987 911 Carrera. The build was completed under the previous owner, and the seller has added around 500 miles since he purchased the car on BaT in September 2015. Details of the build include steel fender flares, a custom-upholstered interior, Koni/Boge dampers, big Boxster S brakes, 993 Cup wheels, and more described below. The car has been serviced within the past six months, and folders of receipts for parts and work from the previous owner are included. This 914 is now offered with build records and a clean Virginia title in the seller’s name.
Bodywork is finished in Signal Orange, which was recently applied at the time of the 2015 sale with steel fender flares welded in. Grey 993 Cup wheels were added by the previous owner on hub-centric spacers, which conceal Boxster S disc brakes for improved braking performance. 205/55 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus tires are fitted at all corners.
The car rides lower than stock over Boge front shocks with Koni inserts, and Koni coilovers are equipped at the rear. The targa roof panel is said to be watertight.
The original cracked dash is concealed with a cap, and a MOMO Montecarlo wheel and aftermarket stereo were installed in the refurbished cockpit. The WEVO shifter operates the 915 gearbox in a standard H-pattern, and is flanked by a fire extinguisher bottle.
Custom upholstery features orange houndstooth center inserts, which are carried over to the door panels. Rubber honeycomb mats line the carpeted floors. ~11k miles are indicated, with true mileage unknown. 9k miles have been driven since the drivetrain swap, with around 500 miles added by the seller
The 3.2L fuel-injected flat-six was reportedly sourced from a 1987 911 Carrera donor, flipped 180º to place the engine amidships, and the 915 transaxle was installed with a revised shift linkage from Patrick Motorsports. Drivetrain mileage is estimated to be around 96k, with ~9k miles driven in the current build. An oil service was performed in early 2018.
Rear trunk storage includes a space-saver spare, and targa panel retaining hardware.
The front trunk is carpet-lined, containing the battery and other equipment.
A few current pictures of the underside can be seen in the gallery, and a large selection of images from the previous owner can be viewed in the 2015 BaT listing.
Receipts for parts and work document the build process, and are included in four organized folders.
