In 1978 Porsche introduced their latest version of their 911 called the '911SC'. It featured a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. Originally, power output was 180bhp, later 188bhp and then in 1981, it was increased to 204bhp.

This UK-supplied 911 SC is finished in an appropriate 70's colour combination of Gold with a matching Tan interior with groovy ‘Pasha' covered sports seats. The car has been maintained by respected Porsche specialist RS911 in Wales and will be coming directly from them to the auction following a full engine service and some attention to the brakes including new rear brake calipers and discs. It will be supplied with a fresh MOT certificate and will be ready to be driven away from the auction.

Supplied with its original service book, tools, jack and recently refurbished wheels, this 911 SC has covered a total of 129,950 miles but has been the subject of significant expenditure over the years. Speaking with RS911, they report that the car is an excellent original car with good floor pans and crisp shut lines The car drives well and the interior is superb.

Purchased by the current owner three years ago, it has been kept in dry storage during that time and only brought out on high days and holidays. The SC remains an excellent value entry into Classic 911 ownership, with a great blend of traditional styling with a more refined driving experience than earlier models. We welcome pre-sale inspections on this car and bidders should contact the office for further details.
