1975 - 1976 "GC" Engine Code

A Bit Less Power to the People

Most 1975-1976 Porsche 914 vehicles came equipped with a 2.0L "GC" coded engine. The "GC" engine incorporates air-injection, a catalytic converter and other emission control devices not found in the earlier (1973-1974) "GA" 2.0 liter engine. The addition of this environment-protecting equipment reduced the "GC" code engine performance by seven horsepower (DIN @ 4900 RPM) and 9 ft-lbs of torque @ 3500 RPM (6 ft-lbs of torque @ 4000 RPM) from the earlier "GA" code 2.0L engine, resulting in diminished acceleration and top speed. Additional information regarding the "GC" engines is located (not surprisingly) on the ENGINE SPECIFICATIONS page.


The 1975-1976 Porsche 914 2.0L vehicles reach 60 MPH in 11.2 seconds.
They cover a quarter-mile in 18.5 seconds while reaching a speed of 78 MPH.
The one kilometer mark is reached in 33.7 seconds at 98 MPH.
The top rated speed of Porsche 914 2.0L "GC" vehicles is 112 MPH.
