Listen as the Porsche 914's 2.0 liter horizontally opposed six cylinder rips through gears as the vehicle is launched.

The greatest aspect of this footage is that we get to witness a first hand account of the Porsche 914's performance abilities.Even though it's old, doesn't mean it's slow. It might not be the most powerful vehicle on the street, but once it gets speed it can hold it through some of the most intense corners. The beauty of the 914's chassis design is that it maintained a low center of gravity which everyone found unique. Watch below how the handling of the Porsche 914 can still compare with modern sports cars. Great job Porsche!
