Snapshot, 1970s: Bringing some sunshine to the slopes

It’s a snowy winter’s day in the mid-1970s, and one skier has brought a ray of sunshine to the resort’s car park with a bright yellow Porsche 914…

The 914 might be the least powerful Porsche on sale, but it still must have been tremendously fun on the slippery roads ascending towards the skiing resort. It’s hardly surprising that the car is drawing bemused looks from passers-by, probably wondering whether it’s wiser to ski back down the mountain than to drive.
