  1. In 1969 Porsche introduced the 914 as both a 2.0 L 6 cylinder Porsche Engine or a 1.7 L 4 cylinder VW Engine. With neither engine really giving any Porsche-like performance; in 1971 Ferdinand Piech had a Prototype built for him as a 916.

  3. The 916 was never brought to market as it was determined ($14,000 to $15,000) to be too expensive by 1971-72 competition. You could get a new 911S Targa for $10, 230, or a more prestigious Ferrari Dino for $14,500. Even the 2.0 L 914-6 was being outsold in 1970 by the 914-4 by 5 to 1 margin. And 1971 was even worse being outsold by a ________ margin!

Porsche Engineers planned on a S3 variant for 1992, but since they had changed so much that only about _______ of the parts were the same, they decided to introduce an all new model as the 968.
