Porsche 914, 914/6 & 916 VIN & Engine Numbers

Did It Come Like That?

The table below provides an overview of VIN, engine number and engine size per model and model year. This data is useful in validating whether a  Porsche 914 or 914/6 retains its original engine as well as validating engine size and expected performance characteristics. Data provided is based on original Porsche factory publications. Nominal Porsche 916 information is also included. Our apologies for the remaining gaps in information, but the factory literature currently at our disposal is not comprehensive. We'll fill things in appropriately as our library expands.

KEY:
-- indicates engines designed for worldwide (not region or country specific) distribution.
SM indicates vehicles equipped with the "Sportomatic" transmission.
(USA) denotes cars manufactured to meet United States federal emissions standards.
(USA-Cal) denotes cars manufactured to meet both United States federal and California state emissions standards (note that all vehicles destined for the  U.S. after 1974 met California emissions standards and suffered the expected drop in PERFORMANCE).
