The factory's skunkworks prototype GT for Max Moritz and then one of Ralph Meaney's Daytona 24 hours race cars, 2nd in GTU.

This was the first of approximately 12 original FIA Group 4 Porsche 914-6 GTs built at Zuffenhausen in 1970. It was equipped with Type 901/36 twin plug 6-cylinder engine #640 0295, steel wheel flares and painted light ivory. Delivered to Autohaus Max Mortiz GmbH where it was modified per factory instructions for racing with 908 front brakes and engine modifications increasing its horsepower to 220 DIN, painted Conda Green.

First race in the 1000 km Rennen Nurburgring on May 31, 1970, driven by Gerhard Quist and Dietrich Krumm The Porsche 914-6GT went on to win 9 of its next 12 ADAC series races, setting lap records at Hockenhein, Germany and Zolder, Belgium, and was described as 'Europe's Fastest GT' by the German Press.

The 914 043 0691 earned Porsche the 1970 international GT Trophy. That Trophy was later presented to Auto Haus Max Moritz, thus ending its European History.

Late in 1970 #914 043 0691 was sold to Ralph Meany Inc, in Mass. USA. This car was entered as #19 in the '24 Hours of Daytona' January 31, 1971. Driven by Steve Behr, John Buffum and Erwin Kremer finishing 2nd in GTU Class and 8th Overall. (Padro Rodriguez and Jackie Oliver won the race in a Porsche 917 K).

Ralph Meany entered another Porsche 914-6, #18 also painted Conda Green, which he drove with Bill Bean and Gary Wright. They finished 21st overall.

Both cars were entered at the '12 Hours of Sebring' race on March 20, 1971. #19, now raced as #29, was driven by Steve Behr, John Buffum, and Astronaut Charles (Pete) Courad Jr. they finished 29th overall. #18, entered as #28, was heavily damaged and was later run as the 1st windshield-less GTU car in IMSA.

During 1971, #19 raced at the 'Six Hours of Watkins Glen' July 24 and ran the inaugural IMSA event at Virginia International Raceway finishing 2nd in GTU, 3rd overall. After several SCCA races in the northeast it won the B/P Championship. (The Porsche 914-6 GT was later banned by the SCCA because of its prowess.)

Its last professional appearance was on September 19, 1971 at the 'Newly Created' Summit Point Raceway.

914 043 0691 is one of the few cars (let alone Porsches) that has both significant European and USA race history.
