Bumblebee and Creamsickle: Two 1974 Porsche 914 Limited Editions

The holy grail of Porsche 914 collecting isn’t the 914-6 like you might think…no, the 914-6 is great, but too expensive, and it isn’t the Bumblebee or Creamsickle.  In 1974 Porsche released the Can-Am inspired Bumblebee and Creamsickle as limited edition cars for North America with production of less than 1000 in total.    Find these two 1974 Porsche 914 Limited Editions offered for an undisclosed price in Denver, CO via craigslist.

Both Limited Edition 914s were well equipped with front/rear anti-roll bars, leather steering wheel, vinyl delete from the targa bar, and a center console with additional gauges, but Creamsickle variant was covered in cream color paint with Phoenix red trim over the lower valence, bumpers and Mahle wheels — it looks reminiscent of the ’73 911 Carrera RS paint scheme.

The Bumblebee was covered in black paint with Sunflower yellow accent paint on the valences and wheels. Both of these cars are complete basket cases, but it isn’t like you find Limited Edition Porsche 914s just sitting around for sale.  Take a peek at the Can-Am 914 registry to see how many of these things still exist.
