A new 914 from Porsche? Will it be fun? Will it be cheap? Will it catch fire like a basement full of oil-soaked rags? All these questions may be answered if a report in Road and Track is on the money. The new niner would recall the old model's VW/Porsche connection — a stripped-down Boxster, weighing in at only 2650 lb., powered by a juiced-up version of Volkswagen s 2.0-liter TFSI turbo four producing 230 bhp. Sure it'd be panned for its degradation of the Porsche marque, but it might be good for a laugh.
