This is a study about a remarkable little car that, on its appearance in 1969, was thought, at best, a mish-mash of ideas, and not a ‘proper’ Porsche. It’s also a story of the ‘little’ guys … the privateers and dealer teams that did most of the development that turned the 914 into great little racer.
