Porsche 914 Acceleration
1970 - 1973 "W" and "EA" Engine Codes

Not So Fast

1970-1973 Porsche 914 vehicles equipped with the five-speed manual transmission produce the acceleration curve shown below. This initial "W" (or later re-coded "EA") engine type provides reasonable acceleration given its size, but drag racing is out of the question. Additional information regarding the "W" and "EA" engines is located (not surprisingly) on the ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS page.
