Why did this Porsche have a VW badge?

The Porsche 914 wasn’t really a Porsche at all. Well it was, but it had a bunch of Volkswagen bits in it. But then again, it wasn’t exactly unique in that respect! What was different about the 914 was the Porsche and Volkswagen badge on the back, and the fact that it was sold in Volkswagen dealers, right next to the Type 2 panel van! It was born out of a mutual need for a sports car, but its development would severely damage the close relationship the two companies had shared for decades.
