Despite rumors that Porsche is considering producing a new 914 , according to Wolfgang Dürheimer, Head of Porsche Research and Development, in a recent interview with the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport.
The Boxster will remain the baby of the line-up and contrary to the rationale that the sports car maker would make their own version of the Volkswagen Bluesport Concept , in essence a 914. The head of Porsche R&D said that because of the current economic climate the Germans said forget about it.
On the other hand, Volkswagen officials said that they need both Audi and Porsche to make the future roadster fiscally possible. This is especially strange considering that the recent Porsche/Volkswagen merger and 40th anniversary of the 914 would make for a most opportune comeback.
