1982 PORSCHE 911SC – 98,000 miles – £45,850
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. There was, though, a new badge. Some have said that SC stands for ‘Super Carrera’, ‘Sports Carrera’ or even ‘Special Carrera’.
The engine was a peach 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, while remaining remarkably free-revving and eager. Non US cars was increased to 188bhp in 1980, then, the following year as in this example the output was raised to 204bhp.
This is a stunning well maintained Sport Pack car with the all important sports seats, suspension, spoilers, alloy wheels and sunroof.
Finished in Guards red with black leather she has all the original handbooks and service book which has many Porsche dealer service stamps inc. invoices, having been serviced at Porsche Wolverhampton 2017.
