Does anyone know what #40 was able to hit at Le Mans?

I have only had my 914 up to a blistering 35mph around the block a few times before I took it apart. Considering the condition of the brakes at the time, that was about 34 mph too fast.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif) ,after getting my 6 in I did 100mph fairly easily then ran out of road,felt great.
I guess Glen or Marty could chime in with the top speed of the 914/6 GT Lemans cars,would be interested to know also ?

hum my cousins car has to be one of the fastest 914s. he had a nascar SB2 878hp engine in his and he would pull the 911 turbos. bob stopanovich and joe wong in his GT2 on the straights. i will find out how fast he clocked on the straight at T Hill.

Now I am curious about this.

Stock 996 GT2 was 135 mph indicated on the way into Turn 1 at TH on a crisp cold day with a pro driving back in 2002, 130 with me.

Stock 991.2 Turbo was 145 mph into Turn 1 at TH a couple of years ago on a 106~ F afternoon with me driving. Oh yeah: it was a Cabriolet with an automatic transmission and heated & cooled seats. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

But Wong and Bob were both very, very quick and know TH well. Curious what that 914 was seeing if it was pulling them on the straight. Now wondering what the fastest trap speed on that straight is. @SirAndy , do you know?

135moh in a with a 3.6 out of a C2 and a Wevo trans. I remember thinking I could’ve gotten higher... right before I got pulled over.

I don’t think 150 is out of reach at all, given the right conditions. Safety first!

Huge difference that Carl and co. achieved with a few effective aero devices.
Surely, someone has, in the past 31 years, gone faster in a 914 in that road race, or any other.
Carl's ' Porschaus 914-6 ' had set the standard with the run through the canyons, and a radar trap speed of 175. Tremendous legacy if their record still stands.

I hit the 100mph number briefly. 1911cc motor with FI. Only exterior mod is the LE front spoiler.

I think I could have pushed it a little more....

Tony @Cracker has track video of nearly 170 in his. Granted, it's got an LS7 and Boxster S trans and brakes. Does that still count as being a 914? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

And it's not just the 170 top speed that's fun... the acceleration is BRUTAL!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/w00t.gif)

Likewise, I run out of revs (gears) around 135 which is plenty fast in any 914 lacking extensive aero.

I imagine Roger Sheridan's "hippie" car which is barely a 914 at all, cooks pretty well around Turn 8 at Willow... I saw it run a number of times but unsure of times/speeds

I stood next to a 914-V8 going 180 on a Dynojet roller.
Nick Ventura's "batmobile" has to be about the fastest 914 track car, pushed by a 956 motor.

It will be interesting to see how fast Marty's 1,000 hp twin turbo Cayenne power 914 will go.

I can confirm a stock 1.7 with Webers and no valances (and a burned intake valve on #1) tops out at 95, measured with GPS.

And just to reiterate a point i was trying to make earlier:

More horsepower does not change your top speed, it just gets you there faster


Your (potential) top speed is a combination of the max. rpm of your engine plus your transmission gearing plus your wheel/tire diameter.

170 is what Ralph Meaney told us.
