The 911SC arrived in 1978 and was significant as it streamlined the previous somewhat confusing range of 911s into one single model. if you wanted to buy a normally-aspirated 911 in the late 1970s or early 1980s, it had to be an SC. However, there were many interpretations of the new badge. Some have said that SC stands for “Super Carrera”, “Sports Carrera” or even “Special Carrera”.
The engine was a beauty even in its original 180bhp guise as it produced more power and torque at lower revs than the rather peaky Carrera 3.0’s unit whilst remaining remarkably free-revving and eager. Non-US cars were increased to 188bhp in 1980. Then, the following year, as in this example, the output was raised to 204bhp.
This is a particularly stunning example of a 911SC – a well-maintained Sport Pack car with the all-important sports seats, suspension, spoilers, alloy wheels and sunroof and only 99,000 miles on the clock.
Finished in its original colour of Guards Red with Black Leather interior, she has all her original hand books and service book which contains many Porsche dealer service stamps and invoices having been serviced at Porsche Wolverhampton in 2017.
Recent expenditure of her maintenance includes new heat exchangers, sports exhaust, Becker radio and detailing.
She received a full “glass out” repaint at Porsche around 2005 and her paintwork stills looks just as beautiful today. She also benefitted from a top end engine rebuild.
911SC’s are one of the best driving cars of the 1980s. A turbine-like engine revving all the way to the red line coupled with a slick gearbox (915 type) provide long-legged cruising capabilities meaning daily use is easily achievable.
