I just read this one:
https://www.pca.org/news/2020-05-01/book-re...ars-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.

If you have 3.0 or 3.2 the Bentley 911 guide is very helpful.
