Some cars are wildly heralded before the even hit the showrooms — Corvettes, Ferraris, Corollas (for better or for worse). Some cars never get the attention or the treatment they deserve.
It never really made sense in the first place and now it's dead. You do have to love the cheap midengine sports car, though, don't you?
Parents make a lot of sacrifices for their families. Often, it's a beloved car. For Dave, the money he saved to restore a 1973 Porsche 914 was just enough to cover a wedding.
Porsche fans are an odd bunch. They love their 356's and their 911's but anything that deviates too far from that formula gets shunned from the limelight. That's a shame because they've made some brilliant cars like the 924, 928, 944 and this, the 914.
I've seen a lot of drivers and a lot of vehicles respond to a #burnoutnomination challenge. But I never expected a Porsche 914-6 to enter the fray.
The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe 914 suggests the V8-powered car lacks gentility and will scare your dog. My dog’s scared of having baths so I don’t know if that’s an accurate indicator of its meanness, but you can still use that to determine if its price is doggone scary.

Although some might say that the Porsche 914 was nothing but a bastard child made to replace the aging Porsche 912 and the VW Karmann-Ghia, we simply love its design, and the whole idea of a Porsche two-seater made for the masses... even if it only had 80 horsepower.
Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Warsaw’s Verva Street Racing festival has officially made the Polish capital the coolest car city in Central Europe, with 110 cars racing on a street circuit in the middle of town. Famous car people were also in attendance: joining the six vintage Lotus F1 racers were, among others, Jay Kay and the artist formerly…
For the ultimate in avoiding high pump prices, you can go electric, however new battery-powered cars from Tesla and Fisker are pretty costly. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe electric 914's price proves that needn't be the case, but is it still shocking?
Every year to mark Thanksgiving, a U.S. president pardons a turkey. In unrelated news, here's a 1972 Porsche 914 with a Chevy 327 V8 and body panels from three Japanese donors.
You've seen the Telluride Marine Sniper VW Bus, but that wasn't the only vintage German machine I photographed while I was 9,000 feet up in the Rockies.
The car that really got me addicted was, of course, the new Fiat 128 my parents bought when I was 6; it sounded amazing going through the gears. However, I never thought "I must have one of these someday"
