It is with great excitement to announce that #40 has found new ownership with us, in the Schneider Family. Michael & Renee Hagen, two of the most amazing individuals I have gotten to know so well, have entrusted #40's ownership to us going forward, and we couldn't be more thrilled. With such history, we are honored to oversee this vehicle in to its next chapter of life within our possession.

Awesome bucket list item. To not only have the car that was on the poster, but to have THE car that was on the poster. Congratulations! And it sounds like you appreciate the car as more than just an investment.

I remember seeing that famous 914 at the Dunkle Bros show back around 2003 or 4.

I didn't even know the significance of it back then !

Congratulations, it is going to a good home for sure.

my sincerest congratulations, I remember when Cary first got it for the Hagens. Great car. Some of our French 914 enthusiasts have made a clone of it, had it on display in paris last february. Says a lot about the rich history of the marque

Congrats, you two!

You almost guessed us as the new owners of #40 last week with the GT fuel tank thread , all in fun. Never take the victory lap until the goods are in hand, right ¿¡

Just a shout out to all lovers of Porsche 914 Renn history, when #40 comes back from a light restoration she will live in SoCal . We will have it avail for a look see , at certain functions, tracks , Rennsoprt.

Today...still pinching ourselves that we are the caretakers of #40 , and are humbled with your enthusiasm by all of you here on 914World.
Thank you to you all !

I watsched "Le Mans" tonight and saw #40 in several scenes...from starting line up and all through the film. Great to see this historic car in action back in 1970 and now still in good care. beerchug.gif
Cairo94507
I am so glad this historic Six will be living in Southern California so we can see it at local events. Looking forward to seeing it soon I hope. beerchug.gif

AFAIK...the #40 has remained in private ownership through the decades following its 1970 (2L gt) class P1 at the 24hr. Even included some daily driving duties while back in the Paris /Sonauto dealership driving.gif driving-girl.gif
Then on to a private museum in Germany. Finally making it's way here to the States in the late '80s (I'm told), then into our caretaking in 2020.

This is awesome aktion035.gif
It's so much more incredible knowing that this car is in the hands of a true 914 enthusiast who will use, enjoy and share the awesomeness of this car with the community! Congratulations!!!

It's a legit 4 speed with a 304, but becoming a 401-XR spec v8 tribute driving.gif
Only 21 or 22 XR originals built...so very rare + the tribute will be fun enough
