Details Specification

In 1978 Porsche introduced their new version of the 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 finally 204bhp. This single mirror, left-hand drive early 911 SC Coupe was delivered new in 1978 and was owned by the first owner until 1999 when it was passed to a family friend. He owned the car until 2014 when it was imported to the UK. With 2 previous owners, this stunning 911 SC has covered just over 29,500 miles from new. Whilst not completely substantiated by service history, the condition of the car is commensurate with a very low mileage car. Benefitting from many years in the dry climate of California, the Guards Red paintwork is in superb condition and shows very minimal paint thickness on the main panels. The floors are in superb order and the interior needs to be seen to be believed. We have never seen a better interior that has survived the test of time quite so amazingly. The carpets, headlining, switchgear and seats are totally original and in beautiful condition. The inner wings are factory correct and the wheels are in lovely condition. Supplied with the original wallet, books, jack, tools and benefitting from a technical inspection at Porsche expert Charles Ivey in London, who recently carried out a full service and fitted a new clutch and starter motor. Consequently, the car is in superb order both aesthetically and mechanically. Offered without reserve, this 911 SC is not to be missed.
