1971 Porsche 914/6 GT Werkswagen Selling At The Amelia

Unveiling a Rally Legend.

Gear up for an extraordinary journey back to the golden era of rally racing with the unveiling of the 1971 Porsche 914/6 GT Werkswagen, a masterpiece of automotive engineering and racing history. Set to grace The Amelia Auction 2024, this iconic racer carries an estimated value between $1,200,000 and $1,500,000, a testament to its unparalleled legacy and rarity.

With a prestigious lineage as one of only 12 factory Werkswagen 914/6 GTs crafted for the 1970 and 1971 racing seasons, this vehicle not only competed under the expert hands of Gérard Larrousse and Jean-Claude Perramond in the challenging 1971 Rallye Monte Carlo but also served as "Quick Vic" Elford's reconnaissance car for the Targa Florio. Its significance is further underscored by its prolonged retention within Porsche's test department until 1973, followed by a meticulous restoration and 30-year stewardship by Porsche factory race engineer Walter Näher.

This champion of the 1971 Rallye Monte Carlo, chassis number 9141430141, stands as a symbol of Porsche's innovative spirit in motorsport. Its journey from the snowy Monte Carlo rally stages to becoming an Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance class winner and a revered participant in the Rennsport Reunion and GP Ice Race underscores its enduring allure and versatility on and off the track.

Equipped with a formidable 351 CI Stroker V-8 engine, Holley Dominator ECU, aluminum heads, and a custom IR manifold, this Porsche 914/6 GT merges historic prowess with modern performance. Its refinished black exterior, handcrafted hood, and grille trim, alongside custom rear quarter ducts, encapsulate the essence of racing excellence.

Eligible for prestigious events like Luftgekühlt and Rennsport Reunion, this Porsche 914/6 GT invites enthusiasts to celebrate the legacy of rally and vintage racing. Its story, from the snowy Alps to the Sicilian hills and beyond, encapsulates the spirit of adventure and the relentless pursuit of victory that defines the Porsche marque.
