The 914 is the Classic Porsche You Can Actually Afford
Classic cars are a commitment, but Porsche car owners can get the original parts for any model through Porsche Classic, which makes the brand particularly attractive. However, even more appealing is that a car enthusiast who wants a classic Porsche and has a budget of $25,000 to $40,000 dollars can get a pretty good deal on a Porsche 914.
It should be noted, though, that some purists say the 914 is not really a Porsche. As the automaker explains on its website, Porsche partnered up with Volkswagen via a deal between Ferry Porsche and VW Director Heinrich Nordhoff in the mid-1960s. The 914 was built in two versions: one with an engine from VW and the other with an engine Porsche built.
Ferry Porsche himself was a 914 fan, as he wanted an affordable Porsche model to give young drivers a taste of what the company's vehicles could do. Today, Porsche defends the 914 as sporting a "typical Porsche design," making it a proud member of its family of classics. Without a doubt, the 914 is the most affordable route for getting into the world of Porsche ownership.
