A NEW APPROACH IN AN AGE OLD BUSINESS+44 (0) 1926 691 141
In 1978, Porsche introduced their latest development of the 911, christened the '911 SC', with the SC standing for Super Carrera, Powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a five-speed, 915 transmission, power output initially was 180bhp, later 188bhp and then, in 1981, it was increased to a heady 204bhp. 1979 was the year that Porsche had envisioned that their new 928 would replace the 911 (we are still waiting for that to happen), however, 911 sales remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into their core model. This early SC was manufactured in 1978 and is finished in Red with a black leather interior, piped in red and its history file shows that the car had spent a number of years in Ireland, with Irish Vehicle Test Certificates dating from 1993. Historical photos and invoices show the car had a wings-off respray in the late 1990s, and a letter from the Porsche Club GB around that time states the car was in "Very good condition throughout. Recent wings-off respray.". Sundry other receipts and invoices show work carried out in England by Red Triangle of Kenilworth in July 2014. Further receipts from noted Porsche specialists Autofarm are on file, with a recent invoice from Jaz Specialists in Porsche of North London in August 2015 to the tune of £1,947.20, and the vendor informs us the car was serviced at this time. Purchased by our Porsche enthusiast vendor on the 14th April 2014 to "tick the red 911 box" the car has been well maintained by him. Presented to auction with an MoT until 1st February 2017 and showing 81,127 miles, this lovely Porsche makes an ideal entry level example for those also wishing to tick "the red 911" box.
