Not to even further continue the hijack but... yes, the 914s handled better than the 911s. Basically because of the weight distribution due to the mid-engine concept. And of, course, the snooty Porsche purists snubbed them, because of the VW connection. But even in the stock form with the 2.0L 110hp flat six, the 914/6 ate the 2.2L 911 for lunch , unless you had the "S" version with 50 hp more than the 914.
