When you can find a well-kept model without the car's unfortunate …

the forgotten porsche 914 petrolicious

Why is the 914 treated with such apathy within the Porsche community? It is a brilliant car that handles much better than its 4-decade-old appearance would lead you to believe.

Recently, I sold my Mercedes CLK AMG Cabriolet and the resulting hole in the garage is getting bigger as the weather turns warm. In an attempt to assuage my need for open air driving I have looked at a number of 914s (love the big open targa top) and I'm close to making a purchase. The car in question is a 1973 914 1.7 liter.
