Porsche 914 Day and closing celebration of the International 914 Meeting

June 2nd until July 7th, 2019

On 2nd of June, Porsche Museum will be opening the four-week special exhibition “50 Years of the Porsche 914 – typically Porsche” with the Porsche 914 Day – together with the Porsche 914 Clubs and over 120 privately owned 914 models.

In the autumn of 1969, the 914 was presented at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt as Germany’s first mid-engined series sports car. There were two variants: the 914 model with four-cylinder engine, as VW-Porsche, and the 914/6 with six-cylinder boxer, as Porsche. Fifty years later, the Porsche Museum is dedicating a special exhibition to this series. You can visit “50 Years of the Porsche 914 – typically Porsche” from June 2nd to July 7th.

914 Club President Georg Eberlein is - of course - also publicising the anniversary celebrations. “This year sees the International 914 Meeting in Germany to commemorate the anniversary. It will be centred in Wiesloch, close to Heidelberg and we will be exploring the beautiful Kraichgau district, the Kurpfalz and dive into the Neckar river valley,” explains the President. “On the anniversary date of 2nd of June, we will be driving a special tour to the Porsche Museum with 120 vehicles and 240 participants and exhibiting our cars there. Our aim is to fill the streets all around the Museum with colourful Porsche 914s. We are also calling out to the whole 914 community: Come and join us on 2nd of June at the Porsche Museum with your Porsche 914!”

We will join and are looking forward to the beautifully colored sight.
