Looks Good In Red: 1972 Porsche 914 1.7

The Porsche 914 was originally conceived as a dual purpose range topping Volkswagen and low-end Porsche, to replace the Karmann-Ghia and 912, respectively. The initial plan of marketing the 6-cylinder version as Porsche and the 4-cylinder as Volkswagen was eventually canned and lowly 4-banger version got a Porsche crest too — and today, the easiest way to get in a fight with a 914 enthusiast is to call his car a Volkswagen.  Instead of picking fights with people who like driving slow cars, why not join them by picking up this 1972 Porsche 914 1.7 offered for $7500 in Mesa, AZ via craigslist.
