Porsche 914 Factory Tool Kit Screwdrivers

If It's Good Enough for a Volkswagen...

All Porsche 914 tool sets arrived from the factory with the same screwdriver provided in Volkswagen kits for that model year. The tools issued had a reversable shaft which enabled use as either a Phillips or standard-tipped screwdriver (Porsche 911 tool kit screwdrivers were also changed to this format in 1974). With the exception of some of the screwdrivers distributed in 1973 Porsche 914 tool sets, these tools possessed a black plastic handle (the aforementioned 1973 models have a white-ivory handle). The overall design of the screwdriver did not change for the entirety of the 1970-1976 Porsche 914 production, although there were some subtle variations in the later model years as described below. The most frequent problem experienced with the Porsche 914 tool kit screwdrivers (other than damage from misuse) is loosening and eventual slipping of the removable shaft.

Later Porsche 914 tool set screwdrivers are either the black-handled variety found in earlier model year kits or units with a slightly different grip, embossed simply "Made in W-Germany," and containing a metal insert to secure the blade.
