Porsche 914 2.0 Sets 0-60-0 Record
A key automotive performance metric is often to report on the 0 to 60 mph braking to 0 time, but it is not often measured on air-cooled Porsches, especially Porsche 914 2.0-liters. In this case we are looking at sale prices where the price of this beautiful original owner 1974 Porsche 914 2.0 went from $0 to $67,200 and then back to zero in a matter of months.
What happened here?
This Porsche 914 was sold at auction at one of the most prestigious auctions held annually, the RM Sotheby’s August 2019 Monterey auction. It is rarefied air for a Porsche 914 but this Olympic Blue original owner Porsche 914 with such details as a ski rack was a looker and turned enough heads to get two bidders to drive the price to $67,200, a pretty heady price for a Porsche 914, even one looking as nice as this one.
It is hard to say what happened as this Porsche 914 is now for sale on Bring-a-Trailer (BaT). The seller states that it is the same car, but it is unknown whether the sale fell through or the buyer said “What did I do spending $67,200 on a Porsche 914?”
