Love the GT-40. But I also like my cars.

914
911
what engine do you have in the 914? it looks like you changed out the porsche air-cooled engine for a water-cooled.

that is a beautiful 911. is it your everyday driver?

Thanks, actually the black car is a '66 912, the 4 cyl. one. The red 914 has a 300 hp Subie WRX turbo motor in it, I just got it and am still working out the bugs (I bought it for just about what the conversion parts would cost) so there are some bugs.
The only 6 cylinder Porsche that I have is a 914/6 resto project, the 275th 914/6 that Porsche made. I will most likely be pushing retirement age when I get that one done. I hope I can still crawl into it by then.
Before you other guys judge me, I got a lot more bikes than cars.

cool. the subaru engine is one of the best conversions there is. i have heard of people even squeezing chevy v6s and v8s into 914s, but that just seems... wrong. at least the subaru is a boxer.

even though the 912 only had the 4 cylinder pumped up bug engine in it, it was still pretty fast and got great gas mileage. they both had the 901 transmission (i think), so in theory one could just bolt in the six cylinder engine and have a 911. i'm sure somebody must have done this, but the four was such a good engine, that i don't think many bothered.

i'd love to have an old porsche, but i'm too lazy to roll up and down windows or use a key to open/close doors.

Ford Pantera

This is when the Pantera and other Italian sports cars had Campagnolo wheels.
