The Porsche 914 was introduced in September 1969 as a collaborative effort between Porsche and Volkwagen. The radical design they came up with was a mid-engined vehicle with seating for two, and featured a removal targa top. Volkwagen needed a vehicle to replace the aging Karmann- Ghia while Porsche was looking for another option to add to their impressive line up. Topping the range was the 914-6, a six-cylinder version. It was short lived, with only 3360 examples produced between 1969 and 1972, and all standard cars featured a 2.0 litre flat-six engine.
In 1970 Porsche entered a 914-6 GT in the grueling 24 hours of Le Mans race. It finished 6th overall and won its class, only the first chapter in the vehicle's extensive racing career, which continues to this day.
