The red varnish stood on the wish list of former customers – a typical color of the Flowerpower years. No doubt, the “VW-Porsche” also looks 40 years later more odd than other sports cars. But he is also a unique car. After a constructive cooperation between Volkswagen and Porsche, the Type 914 was launched in the autumn of 1969 with an air-cooled box motor. The four-cylinder cars with an 80 hp engine once ran off the track at Karmann in Osnabrück, while Porsche even staged the six-cylinder with a proud 110 hp in Stuttgart. The difference between this Porsche and the unusual twin-engine with a mid-engine and detachable Targadach sometimes also brought unjustified havoc: “Coal-box” was called because of its angular shape. As a “Vopo”, which was identical with “Volkssporsche”, everyone knew that the Porsche 914 was meant. Until 1976, the “VW Porsche” was built 120,000 times and is now regarded as a youngtimer of particular quality.
