I’ve driven a few Porsche 914s in my life, and most were underpowered compared to modern cars on the road. The 1.7 liter version is particularly gutless, but it brings a certain amount of pre-planning to your driving style and I found it fun. However, I don’t doubt that a 914 with an upgraded engine would be a blast, but I never in my wildest dreams imagined that someone would shoehorn a Turbocharged Buick V6 from a GNX into the middle of a 914. Find this 1973 Porsche 914 offered for $12,500 in Sandown, NH via craigslist.
