Factory Tool Kit Contents

Same Engine, Same Tools

All Porsche 914 and 914/6 vehicles were delivered with a tool kit in the front trunk. The four-cylinder Porsche 914 cars were assembled by Volkswagen, and the tool kits provided greatly resembled the VW kits of the era. The Porsche 914/6 vehicles were assembled by Porsche at the Zuffenhausen factory and subsequently outfitted with the same tool kit as the model with which they shared engines, the Porsche 911. The single difference between the Porsche 911 and 914/6 tool kits is the inclusion of a towing eye in the 914/6 (which actually came mounted in the front trunk, not in the tool bag).

Conveniently, the Porsche 914/6 was produced from 1970-1972, thereby narrowly avoiding the Porsche 911 tool kit overhauls undergone during the 1969 and 1974 model years (thus making life much simpler for the 914/6 Concours crowd). In fact, only the tool kit pliers and the spark plug wrench were changed during this period of time (despite the popular misconception that there were no changes in the Porsche 911 tool kit between 1969 and 1973). Details of these subtle changes are documented and pictured on the corresponding individual tool pages accesible via the buttons in the left panel.

As noted above, there were two minor changes to components of the tool kit from 1970-1972. During the early part of the 1971 model year production, the combination pliers were changed from an unbranded style with a raised cutting edge to Hapewe pliers with a flush edge. Additionally, the Klein spark plug socket experienced some subtle stylistic changes prior to the 1972 model year production run.
