The 911SC with 204bhp was produced from August 1980 to July 1983 and arguably represents the sweet spot of 911 production. Up to this point, the engines were putting out 180bhp and lacking in raw power and the next 911 in the series, the Carrera, had lost that rigid race car feel, a conscious move by Porsche to compete with other more comfortable sports cars. The 911SC therefore, is the most pure and compelling 911 to own, providing great feedback to the driver and engendering real excitement with a feeling of security. Earlier cars had developed a reputation for 'lift-off' oversteer, however, these 911SCs are on the contrary quite easy to drive on the limit and hugely enjoyable. You can search for and find the cars balance, understand what it wants to do next and throttle back in time if you push too hard. Offered in beautiful Chiffon White with the desirable Targa roof, this sports car is an original right-hand drive car with an enviable history that has been subject to around £40,000 in restorative works. Conducted by respected specialist classic car restorers, Cardock Classics of Dublin, our 911SC has been the subject of a complete bare metal re-spray. In the process, all of the body trims, window seals, and light lenses were replaced. It further benefits from having re-furbished Fuchs alloys, new carpets, and a refurbished steering wheel. The Targa top has also been completely recommissioned and married with new latches for a tight seal. The tea-tray spoiler has been removed as it gives the car a purer look, however, it is included in the sale should a future custodian wish to replace it. Prior to refurbishment, the car had been known to Cardock Classics since 2001. In mechanically excellent order and with this extensive restoration now completed, the car looks fabulous and crisply detailed in a rare and very pretty colour combination. This is a true driver's car that should prove reliable, and will provide many more thousands of miles of Porsche motoring, comfortable in the knowledge that your investment has been future-proofed.
