Porsche 914: 50 Years (Limited Edition) Hardback
-Special slipcased edition, limited to 314 copies The Porsche 911's little brother...
In 1969 a very special sports car was born. The 914 rose from a marriage of convenience of Volkswagen and Porsche, because both companies wanted a small, modern and affordable sports car in their product range, but for little cost.
Thus it was decided to combine the skills of both manufacturers.
The result was a light mid-engine sports car with a lively road performance and even 50 years after its launch, it pleases the eye with a fresh design.
Back then it was often ridiculed as a 'housewife Porsche' or 'Volks-Porsche', but now, the 914 has come out of the shadow of its big brother the 911 and has a huge fan base; today it lives on in the Boxster and Cayman models.
This volume includes: the result of thorough research in the Porsche and VW archives; rich photography; all technical data; development, production, model history and racing appearances.
