The dangers to modifying a car lie in a) your tastes not matching up to others’ tastes, especially when going to sell the car, and b) going too far with the modifications. However, the seller of this 1973 Porsche 914S for sale on Hemmings.com seems to have avoided those two pitfalls, selecting a modest roster of alterations, none of which appears to be irreversible. From the seller’s description:
This 1973 914S is an exceptional, prize-winning, low-mile, California car. I’ve owned this car for years and have always babied it. It is a very sound and well-preserved show stopper. This 914 has never, to my knowledge, been outside of the hot, dry Central Valley of California, and has always been garaged and/or covered. It is 99% rust-free. Very original with only tasteful and practical upgrades done, easily changed back, if so desired. Years of extras and original pieces can be included. It has received miscellaneous awards and has a great show history. It runs very cool & is very streetable while producing 50% more HP than stock, yet it yields up to 30 MPG on today’s regular fuel. This is most likely one of the nicest rust-free survivor 914/4s you’ll ever find! Drive it anywhere with confidence.
The new 2056 engine was based off of a “GA” 2.0 case, and only the best components were used. I have the original engine, complete with all FI components, including harness, ECU and all original tin.
