1981 Porsche 911 Coupe
In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC (as distinguished from the race engined 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The "SC" stands for "Super Carrera". It featured a 3.0-litre aluminum engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. In 1981, horsepower was increased to 201 hp. The move to an aluminum engine was to regain case reliability, something missing for many years with magnesium. Porsche now finally mated a body that was capable of lasting indefinitely with an engine that was capable of lasting nearly that long. Well maintained 911SCs are capable of 300,000 miles between rebuilds. Power was up from the 2.7 liter 911 as well, although not by an enormous amount and the SC was good for a 0-60 run of about 6.3 seconds. Leather, air conditioning, power mirrors and forged alloy wheels became all but standard.
This Porsche 911SC is essence of what a purebred German sportscar should look like finished in classic silver with black interior. It is a 3 owner car with clean CARFAX and history maintenance records back to 1989. It has had one owner for the last 15 years who has treasured the car and maintained it very well until he was no longer able to drive it. This 911 is equipped with factory sunroof, 16 inch Fuchs wheels, and leather interior. The car has had one repaint in the original Zinc metallic color approximately 10 years ago. Upgrades include poly bronze front suspension bushings, Turbo tie rod ends, pop off valve, 180mph speedometer, and Weltmeister quick shift. A valve job was performed in 2009, along with complete head stud replacement and clutch replacement approximately 10k miles ago. This 911 SC coupe is in remarkable condition with light patina to interior surfaces and nearly blemish free paint and trim. You will be hard pressed to find a better example!
