Consistent Functionality

Porsche 914/6 and 1969-1973 Porsche 911 cars were equipped with five double-end spanners (open-end wrenches).Each wrench has a satin chrome finish and is cast with "DROP FORGED STEEL GERMANY" in large block print on one side.

There is a lot of debate and confusion regarding the exact script type found on authentic open-end wrenches delivered in factory Porsche 914/6 tool kits. With the exception of the late 1968 and 1969 model year 912 vehicles, "DROP FORGED STEEL" (DFS) spanners were included in the tool kits of all cars assembled in Porsche factories beginning in 1964 and ending during the 1974 model year production. During this period, there were some subtle variations in the script of the DFS wrenches used in various Porsche models and model years (perhaps most notably on the 10x11 mm wrench -- variations pictured at right with the correct 914/6 wrench at top). Additionally, DFS wrenches were (and perhaps still are) commercially produced with slightly more rounded lettering. Whether there were actually specific script styles associated with specific Porsche models/years is (thankfully) beyond the scope of this site, as it deals only with Porsche 914 914/6 models, and 914/6 DFS wrenches had a consistent print style as shown.

The Porsche 914/6 factory tool kit included double-end spanners in the following sizes:

Porsche 914/6 tool kits also came equipped with a 200 mm long, 19x22 mm box-end wrench. This tool has a satin-chrome finish and is marked "CHROM-VANADIUM" on one side.
