    The 914 was always a Boston Whaler of a value.

    What people don't understand is that the 914 in this picture is being pushed by the boat

  • both have the engines in the correct location. Kudos on the color matching too

    Wow, I'm normally accustomed to seeing John Vachon's pictures on Shorpy.


    Judging from the fact they're not moving, it looks like towing capacity was just exceeded.

    …..Oh wait, it's a still, not a you tube

  • I wonder if that Porsche has any Lastwagen Nüsse?

    • Vavon

      Hahaha!!! Super Scherz!!!

      • Vielen Dank! I'll admit though, I am a google translate cheater…

    The pedal on the right just became the rust accelerator.

    Judging by it's bumper and and the hubcaps it could be 1972 914-6. If this is the case, I do not see a problem

    PS The boat his pulling is Mark Twain

    Even the smallest engine in a 914 is just fine for towing that boat. Our family used to have a trailer full of stuff everytime we went on holiday, my dad drove a Fiat Tipo with a carburetted 1.4 with all of 70hp and it worked just fine. In addition to the trailer there was usually two adults and three kids in the car, and five bikes on the roof. I can't imagine that boat weighing more than five people and bikes plus trailer full of holiday-stuff.. Sure it was slow as hell but it always got there safely.

    Not the same car but same bodystyle and colour.
