You are correct, plus a 914 is very simple to work on and doing nothing but going up in value.. Real car guys don't mind getting their hands dirty and part of the fun of owning an older Porsche is working on it.

Aerodynamics will help against the jeep. It really depends where you will be driving it more than anything. On a two lane blacktop road no Jeep is going to come out of corners as fast as you can. You slow down less before corners if at all, and accelerate your way through often passing on the exit. On constant speed free ways you can lead the packs. But if your plans are to drag from light to light, a sports car may not be for you.

When you are dicing you only have to be in front when the car behind you turns off to win. This is an easy thing to do in a middie.
