Both Porsche and Volkswagen were in need of a new car in the late 1960s. They collaborated on projects before, and the VW-Porsche 914 was going to be last one. Production was going fine, but during the development Porsche realized that it would be risky to sell the same body with a Porsche and Volkswagen badge. Porsche shared their thoughts with VW, but they refused to make any changes in the contract. The price of the chassis went up and the flat-6 car ended up costing only a bit less than the 911 T – which was the 911 entry car. The flat-6 version became a failure while the Porsche 914 with flat-4 became Porsche’s best seller during its model run. This example is powered by the desirable flat-4 and is currently for sale.
