Porsche 914 2.0 Targa
The Porsche 914 was introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1969, with a price tag ranging from $3,015 to $4,775 USD; however, by the time the new model hit stateside, the price jumped by almost $1,000 for both models. From 1966 to 1976, Porsche built in excess of 115,000 914s, which was an impressive number given the car’s unique appearance and character. The 914 was extraordinarily smooth looking in its appearance, and its roomy interior allowed comfortable seating for two adults with few restrictions. It was designed to have ample storage room and did so by utilizing both the front and rear decks of the car. The 914’s powerplant proved more than adequate to most buyers, as the car’s light chassis and body allowed for impressive acceleration and very impressive road handling.
