Beautiful Porsche 914 - modified for autocross and comfortable spirited driving.

Jake Raby 2316cc Turn Key Engine, Full Race Balance with all options - approx 4000 miles on engine
Engine alone should be worth $15K+
Raby has a long waiting list for his Type IV engines

Tangerine Stainless Headers
Dual 48mm Spanish Weber Carburetors
Accusump Oil System
External Oil Filter
Stainless Braided Fuel and Oil Lines
Cylinder Head Temperature Gauges on All 4 Cylinders
Wideband AFR Gauge
Fuel Pressure Gauge
2 sets of wheels and tires -
one set of black powder-coated 5.5" Rivieras running 185/70-15's
one set of 6.5" Aluminum Racing Wheels made by Keizer running 205/55-15's (I have also run Hoosier 205/50-15 AX Slicks on them in the past)

No Rust
Bare Metal Repaint of Exterior in 2013 - Guards Red with PPG Deltron - not perfect but close
Underside stripped and recoated
Interior stripped and recoated
Very quiet and rattle free - especially for a 914
Extremely Clean interior
Top of the line Alpine stereo with external sub amp - sounds excellent
Dino Steering Wheel
Rennshift Kit

Adjustable suspension
Koni shocks
175 pound rear springs
Tarett front sway bar
Elephant bushings on front end

Transmission rebuilt by Original Customs in Sonoma
Throttle Linkage also from Original Customs

This car is fast and handles great. Very reliable.

I've owned it since 2008 and have done most of the work myself. All records since approx 2005 available. Some extra parts as well. Clean title. This is my second 914 and I have extensive experience working on these cars. I've been through everything on this car other than the engine which Jake himself built.

Please email / pm me with questions. Happy to show the car.

I'm moving on to other projects...


Thank you!
