"I have had a very good experience dealing with Jesmond, both buying a 68 Jaguar and selling a 1917 Veteran. They are honest, reliable people and trustworthy operating a very clean and tidy business. I would be happy to do business with them again and would recommend that others do so too."Bruce Oliphant, Waiheke Island, New Zealand
Porsche celebrated its 1,000 plus-horsepower wrecking machine in 1974 by selling 1,000 special 914s, each a 2.0-liter model with a couple of specific options and each available with special badging and only on two separate color schemes.
The Porsche 917/30 crushed all competition in the Can-Am series in 1973, so dominating the series, with Penske driver Mark Donohue winning the last six of eight total rounds, that the SCCA rewrote the rules to essentially outlaw the last of the truly unlimited road-racing cars.
Known officially as the 914 Limited Edition, or LE, all 1,000 cars were shipped to North America for sales in the U.S. and Canada. Porsche selected the LE moniker because the SCCA simply asked too much for the rights to license the Can-Am name on the cars, though they agreed in principle to allow it.
Along with the regular Appearance Group option (fog lamps and center console with clock and additional gauges) at $300, the LE package set buyers back another $320. What they got for their money, however, were add-ons to make quite the slick-looking 914: a special interior, alloy wheels, a spoiler below the front bumper, front and rear anti-roll bars and one of two unique paint combinations, highlighted by a "negative" stripe that spelled out "Porsche" just above the rocker panels.
