Porsche 914/6 Acceleration
1970 - 1971 "901.39" Engine Code (Sportomatic Transmission)

The High Performance 914 for the Low Performance Driver

1970-1971 Porsche 914/6 vehicles equipped with the SPORTOMATIC transmission (all six of them) produce an acceleration curve that begins to underperform the six-cylinder 2.0 liter cars with a five-speed manual transmission once speeds exceed 75 MPH. This results from the different gearing required by the four-speed format. Additional information regarding the six-cylinder "901.39" engines is located (not surprisingly) on the ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS page.


The Porsche 914/6 Sportomatic vehicles reach 60 MPH in 9 seconds.
They cover a quarter-mile in 17 seconds while reaching a speed of 83 MPH.
The one kilometer mark is reached in 33 seconds at 107 MPH.
The top rated speed of Porsche 914/6 Sportomatic cars is 122 MPH.
