The Pick of the Day is a 1975 Porsche 914-6 that was purpose-built for one reason — Porsche Club of America races. It is being advertised on ClassicCars.com by a dealership in Oakwood, Georgia, with a long and successful history in competitive motorsports.

“The car has held two track records and has enjoyed 15 victories,” the dealership notes in the advertisement. “It would be an extremely competitive car in any vintage racing series.”

With an asking price of $39,900, “This is the perfect car to learn the art of racing without spending a fortune on a car that will never perform even close to this one.”

The engine which was recently overhauled is a dual-plug 2.8-liter but with oversize high-compression racing pistons that expand displacement of the 6-cylinder to 2.9 liters. 

“The cylinder heads received new valve guides along with all new valves and retainers,” the dealer adds. “The cams are a custom 11.1 mm lift grind. New timing chains and ramps were installed.

“The slide plate throttle fuel injection system uses RC Engineering SL2-310 injectors, crank trigger fire, dual plug ignition, AEM ignition coils, and a AEM Infinity stand alone engine management with a wide band air fuel gauge. 

“There is a Peterson dry sump oil tank with an oil heater. The fuel cell is excellent and the cell foam is in great shape.”

According to the ad, “You can go into a turn very deep, stand on the brakes, turn in, look for your apex, and stand on the throttle, all without worrying about the rear end coming around. A true delight to drive and enjoy.”

Further, the car could be used in autocross events and the dealer notes that “The fender flares are the nicest we have ever seen.”

The ad also points out that the transmission has been rebuilt with Wevo short shifter, the car has Pagid brake pads with Super Blue Racing brake fluid, and rides on Hoosier tires.
