Porsche 914 Acceleration
1974 - 1976 "EC" Engine Code

Slow and Low

1974-1976 Porsche 914 vehicles equipped with a 1.8L "EC" coded engine produce the acceleration curve shown below. As noted on the ACCELERATION main page, the 1.8 liter engines outperform only the factory 1973 Porsche 914 1.7 Liter California specification power plants ("EB" engine code) due to the lack of domed pistons and emission control oriented changes such as reduced compression. Additional information regarding the "EC" engines is located (not surprisingly) on the ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS page.


The 1974-1976 Porsche 914 1.8L vehicles reach 60 MPH in 13.5 seconds.
They cover a quarter-mile in 19.3 seconds while reaching a speed of 73 MPH.
The one kilometer mark is reached in 35.3 seconds at 92 MPH.
The top rated speed of Porsche 914 1.8L "EC" vehicles is 107.5 MPH.
