Porsches For The Road, The Survivors Series by Henry Rasmussen has a chapter on the 914-6 but nothing really on the 4's.

It was the correct orientation on the phone and my computer
Also das ist mein problem!!
Lots of stuff online :
I just read this one:
https://www.pca.org/news/2020-05-01/book-review-50-years-porsche-914 ( 50 years Porsche 914)
Shared more info regarding development and the VW/Porsche relationship at that time and its impact on how the car was developed than I recall reading elsewhere.
I've got a copy of that, it's a fun read.
A great resource, highlights differences between the years. Available from Auto Atlants
If you have 3.0 or 3.2 the Bentley 911 guide is very helpful.
