rear logos

Does anyone know where I can find definitive info on how different 914 rear logos looked?
I have seen some with PORSCHE letters, and some with Porsche badges.
On a 1970 914-6, which was correct? I love the badging on this Martini version.

What's the deal with the '76s having stickers for the 914 on the back? I'll have to see one of those someday.

Some of those "cost cutting moves" I heard to use the stickers. Looks fine until you get up close....

jackmech,

cost savings by the factory........

every little bit helps.......the letters on the grill used to be metal, then switched to plastic, a few other parts of the car saw changes very similar to save money


I like the look of the decals of the 914 2.0 over the regular emblems

DD where are you?
When did 6's have Porsche logos on the back and when didn't they?

Mine and many I have seen have just 914-6. I am thinking about addin gthe Porsche badge there, but need to justify it to myself.

I thought only the 916's had the Porsche emblem on the back. US 914-6's had just 914-6, while the euro's had 914-6 VW Porsche on the back.

The Martini car is a copy of one of the 916 rear badging styles (they all were a bit different), with one addition. The 916 copied said "916" then the crest, then "Porsche". Being that the Martini car is still a 4cyl, it says "916 4" then the badge then "Porsche". It was made with a "euro" 914-6 "VW" badge that was very carefully cut apart, and the hood crest from an early 356.

Yup. The only badges that said "PORSCHE" on them were the European ones, and they said "PORSCHE (VW) 914", where the (VW) was the Volkswagen logo. The 914-6 had the same kind of logo, but with "914-6".

Apparently the 2.0 cars used the same Porsche-VW 914 logo, then added a (smaller?) "2.0" below and to one side of it. See "Caught By Camera" for several examples. I haven't seen Euro 1.8 badging, or Euro 73 1.7 badging.

Yeah. Stick on emblems. My 76 has them. The only benefit is that you can wax over them without making a mess. Did the 75 model have them too?

My car also has the chrome plated plastic Porsche letters on the engine lid. The chrome plating is peeling off on three of them. Talk about quality. Looks like well used detroit iron. I bought a set of metal chrome letters from Tweeks several years ago but haven't used them yet. Waiting for the restoration.

Apparently you missed my thread on bi-weekly waxing, that includes bumper removal, lens removal and more.

I pull those off to be sure they don't get wax residue on them.

Speaking of rear logos, they should also be removed when waxing,if it is a pre 76.

there is a pretty good book "restoration guide to 914" by brett johnson that discusses alot of "how it's supposed to be" and many variations of the theme, including badging.

I have thought that ...on the right car... a guy could use the new-more-scripty numbers ala 993.

don't know if the sizes are right but one could take 911 and a 4 from C4 to make a new version of 914..

Just a thought.
