Porsche 914 & 914/6 Chassis Dimensions

Consistent (Except for the Bumper Crop)

Porsche 914 and Porsche 914/6 vehicles did not undergo much chassis variation during their respective production runs. With the exception of the Porsche 914/6 GT and 916 models (which had flared fenders), the only real dimensional changes resulted from bumper variants meant to satisfy changing regulations: the addition of front bumper guards ("bumperettes") in 1973, rear bumper guards in 1974, and the shock-mounted, rubber-covered bumpers on the 1975-1976 model year cars. Each of these changes added a few centimeters in length. Additionally, wheel sizes and suspension tuning resulted in an overall two centimeter increase in ground clearance by 1975.

Buttons on the left lead to pages with chassis dimension diagrams for the model year(s) indicated. These diagrams are reproduced from the factory owner's manuals for the appropriate model year range.
