    A lot of those were before my time, but they're sure are some great looking cars on that list.

    I'm not sure how well-researched that article was. For their time, the 912 was a very quick 4 cylinder. They also failed to mention the 914 came in a six cylinder, which won the C-Production National Championship for several years in a row. Having driven a few modified 914s, I can say they were very responsive and satisfying cars to drive.

    Agreed. Most of these articles I post are from Yahoo and they have a history of poorly researched facts. I drove a 914-6 back in the 80's and it was quick. Believe it had 110 HP in a car that weighed 2138 lbs. The 4 cylinder had 80 HPI also drove a 914 that had the 1960's General Motors all aluminum block 215 cu. in. V8 that was sold to the Brits (Rover). Fastest go cart I ever drove Have to scan those old pictures someday.

    I never knew the 914 came with a 6-cylinder. When I was open to picking one up for a long term project, I had read about people putting in 911 motors.
