• The first comprehensive study of the 914 Porsche in competition
• Covers the complete development of the factory GT cars
• Demonstrates the development of the 914 privateer cars
• Includes many constructor and driver details from interviews
• Brings new information, new images, and many surprises from behind the scenes
• Shows the true, little known performance of the 914
• Reveals the sheer volume of podium positions achieved
• Raises the awareness of a forgotten model, that was thought out-of-step with Porsche thinking
• Explores the myths, bad vibes, politics, and what might have been, had the car been properly developed
• Shows how the American racers truly made the 914 perform – well enough to be a championship winner!
This is a study about a remarkable little car that, on its appearance in 1969, was thought, at best, a mish-mash of ideas, and not a ‘proper’ Porsche. It’s also a story of the ‘little’ guys … the privateers and dealer teams that did most of the development that turned the 914 into great little racer.
There are those still today who see the Porsche 914 model as a ‘funny little car,’ compared to the immortal 911. Granted, in its day professional Rally drivers were not keen on the 914: they were nervous driving it at the limit. Yet the records show that 914s were driven to at least 41 class wins, and at least 71 positions on the other two steps of the podium in Regional, National, and International Rallies.
Racing on the circuits of Europe, 914s came home first in their class, and even took overall victory many times. In the USA, in IMSA GTU championship, in nationals, and internationals, it was the same story – and that’s not counting the multitude of SCCA regional races. The 914 first raced in 1970 … the last? Who knows: even now they’re still used in the USA’s SCCA GT classes.
This is a study in pictures, statistics, factory information, and interviews, that will show the Porsche 914 in a whole new light.
The Porsche 914 is a forgotten gem, its racing exploits lost in the mist of time: this work explains all.
The first time a complete work has been dedicated to the racing exploits of the Porsche 914.
The book includes much previously unpublished factory information and photographs, and describes all the detailed body and chassis changes from prototype, and from race to race. Including new and previously unpublished information, the author’s access to the archives of Porsche, in Stuttgart, has enabled him to study all the available in house memos and commands from the time. These details expose the ideas, the rifts, the mistakes – and the successes. Also included are detailed interviews from those involved at the time – both in Europe and the USA, Porsches biggest market and where much of the racing took place, and where some of the biggest names in American motor racing cut their teeth on the 914 model. Little known details about the true capabilities of the four-cylinder model, as opposed to the more popular six-cylinder, are described, along with detailed specifications for the race and rally cars. Concludes with a huge record of racing statistics, including not just the factory cars in the early years, but most of the privateers races too. For this is, above all, a book for the many ‘little guys,’ telling the stories of the non-factory teams in National and International races in Europe, and in IMSA in the USA.
