This Porsche 914 2.0 was completed on January 7, 1976, the last month of the model’s production, and finished in Light Ivory with Yellowstone (tan) leatherette interior. It was fitted with US equipment and optioned with front and rear stabilizer bars, tinted side glass all around, center armrest console, and seat cushions. The Porsche was shipped through Chicago, Illinois, to the selling dealership Rushmore Volkswagen of Rapid City, South Dakota.
As shown on the accompanying Bill of Sale, on April 20, 1976, this very late-production 914 was purchased by Karen Massena of Gillette, Wyoming, for $7,715. Even though Ms. Massena lived in Wyoming, she would regularly make trips back to Rushmore Volkswagen to have her 914 serviced. Ms. Massena would eventually move to Washington State, where she continued to enjoy her Porsche for an impressive four decades.
In 2016, the 914 was acquired by a collector in Florida who had the remarkably well-preserved Porsche put through a no-expense-spared restoration by marque experts. The engine and transaxle were completely restored utilizing OEM parts, with work completed by Naples Classic Car.
Today the car appears very much in the way it left the factory, finished in the correct Light Ivory with a removable black Targa top. It is further equipped with fog lights and dual side-view mirrors as well as upgraded, period-correct four-bolt Mahle-style wheels. The car is in stunning condition throughout, including the undercarriage—a testament to a high-quality restoration of an original car.
The Porsche is accompanied by an extensive documentation file going back to 1976, which contains service records, invoices, and registrations. Additionally, the 914 is offered with its original factory window sticker along with the dealer accessory card, original invoice, owner’s manual and maintenance record book. A Porsche Classic Technical Certificate confirms that the 914 retains its original engine and transaxle.
The 914 has become a sought-after model in the collector market. The final two-liter examples, such as this, with extensive early documentation are among the most desired.
