In fact.. I posted here when I sold it:
The Porsche is SOLD.... new wheels/tires bought
Now.... I miss it.... horribly. I love those little cars, and always will. Poor little bastard child of VW and Porsche. Neither company wants to claim it. Ironically, it handled curves better than anything either one of them made at the time. That is why they are such popular AutoX cars.
They are however... maintenance nightmares..... and prone to rusting like nothing you've ever seen. You have to be EXTREMELY careful when buying one.
I'm still considering selling the Brat once it's finished.... and then coming up with a few Gs out of my pocket and buying another one.
And yes.... they do make SBC conversions for the 914.... and more recently, Subaru conversions for the 914 as well. Renegade Hybrids out of Las Vegas are the leaders in the whole Suby-powered 914 movement...... and I have BOOKS worth of notes needed to build one.
