The GT project for the Porsche 914/6 was launched in 1970. The GT’s engine was tuned for around 220bhp, while glassfibre panels and Plexiglas windows helped get the weight down, and dramatically flared arches accommodated wider wheels. In addition, the factory offered a GT kit that could be ordered with a regular 914/6 to be installed by designated Porsche dealers.
In 1970 Porsche entered a 914/6GT in the gruelling Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race. It finished 6th overall and won its class, a quite remarkable accomplishment. The 914/6GT’s first official outing as a rally car was at the 1971 Monte Carlo Rally, Bjorn Waldegard’s works entry finishing in 3rd place, after which Porsche returned to the perennial 911. The 914/6 was a relatively short-lived model with only 3,360 examples produced between 1970 and 1972.
