Porsche 914 & 914/6 Gauges

No Pressure

Given the fact that there were only seven model years for the Porsche 914 and three for the Porsche 914/6, it is surprising how many different gauges were used. Gauges were standard or optionally available for every important measurement with the unexplainable exception of oil pressure, for which only a dummy light was provided. Our experience has been that oil pressure dummy lights are aptly named; they reinforce what is already painfully evident. This omission becomes still more surprising when you consider that oil pressure gauges had been standard on the Porsche 911 and 912 for years prior to the introduction of the 914.

Details & Fine Print

Anyway, this section describes each of the the gauges that were provided in the Porsche 914 and 914/6 automobiles as well as depicting which styles were used in which models during which year. The buttons on the left lead to pages with detailed information on each gauge used in the various 914 models throughout their production. As labeled, the upper section of buttons focuses on the gauges and bezels housed in the dashboard, while the lower section concentrates on the gauges contained in the center console included in the optional "Appearance Package" beginning with the 1973 model year (914 only). All gauges used in the Porsche 914 and 914/6 models were made by VDO and have a blue production date stamp on the back (month & year) and may also have the production date engraved on the side of the case. This, combined with the part number printed on the top edge of the face, makes it easy to determine the original model and year vehicle in which the gauge was delivered.
