Porsche 914 Acceleration
1973 - 1974 "GA" Engine Code

Power to the People!

1973-1974 Porsche 914 vehicles were equipped with a 2.0L "GA" engine produce the acceleration curve shown below. These more powerful four-cylinder cars, initially marketed in the U.S. as the "Porsche 914-S," were meant to help fill the performance vacancy resulting from production termination of the 914/6. The 2.0L "GA" code is the strongest of the production 914 four cylinder engines in all categories as evidenced in the acceleration curve below. Additional information regarding the "GA" engines is located (not surprisingly) on the ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS page.
