Casablanca Beige 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe

It almost seems as if these days I can’t venture into the classifieds without tripping over a Porsche in a rare color. Taken a step further, I’ve even been coming across colors I have either never come across previously or at most come across once or twice. Earlier this week we had the Raspberry Carrera Targa and now we have this Casablanca Beige Metallic 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe, located in Tennessee. Unlike Raspberry, this color isn’t likely to make some prospective buyers immediately turn the other way. It’s a lovely golden metallic, similar to the Platinum Metallic of this 930, that contrasts well with the various chrome and black trim pieces of the 911SC.

The car was Purchased new by Dr. John Pryce an Orthodontist in Knoxville Tennessee on November 19 1980 with 195 miles on it. He purchased the car from Rodgers Porsche Audi Knoxville Tennessee (now Harpers Porsche, Jaguar). The car was always Garage Kept. Dr. Pryce had the car Professionally repainted 1988. He Later sold the car in 2015 to a Mr. Irwin of Andersonville TN. I purchased the car in January of 2016. The Original Owner owned this car until 2 years ago.

This is a great car. The paint is very nice and the Original Interior is in great shape. The sun roof, power mirrors, Power windows, Factory Radio, heat and AC works great. All the gauges work. I have the complete Pre – Purchase Inspection That was Performed on March 29 2017 that I will gladly email interested buyers. You can fly in and drive this car home.

The car is selling with NO RESERVE so Please feel free to email or call 865-621-4012 with any questions.

While I know not everyone prefers them, I strongly feel that this SC needs the chin spoiler and whale tail. One thing that really stands out to me when looking at this 911 compared with the similar colored 930 is the way the trim pieces complement the gold color so well. So I think this SC needs more of them.

Otherwise, for its age and mileage this 911SC presents pretty well. The seats show a decent bit of wear though there don’t appear to be any significant cracks or tears. It shows as clean, but a little worn. Besides a recent service receipt we don’t hear too much about documentation. The original owner had this 911 until 2015 so perhaps there is more available than revealed here, but we’re probably going to have to be content with that recent service. All in all, this is not a bad looking 911SC and it’s an interesting and period-correct color combination. With bidding on the no reserve auction sitting currently at $25,600 it may end up selling for a pretty reasonable price as well. There’s some time left so we’ll have to see how much more bidding rises, but I don’t expect this one to get out of hand.

  1. “… I strongly feel that this SC needs the chin spoiler and whale tail.”

    Completley disagree. The original clean lines of the 911 just get gummed up by whale tails and front spoilers. The worst is when you find them on a non-930 Targa. Just way too many body lines fighting with eachother. If it’s nota 930 or a 491, keep it clean and simple – the way butzi intended.

  2. Agree with you RPM. On another point when you examine the invoices, when the seller bought the car it apparently had bad rings and broken engine studs and broken oil lines. While the seller calls it a complete rebuild I wouldnt characterize it as such. It also begs the question of the engine having been fairly worn out when the current seller bought it. As I am not familiar with the stoutness of the SC engine, maybe someone can chime in the comments with some accurate observations about the engine..

  3. To each their own. While I agree on the Targa, I always will prefer the whale tail on any post-’73 Coupe. They are best on the early 930s, but I like them on the regular cars too.

  4. I am firmly in the anti-whale tail camp. Such perfect lines without them. (I really dislike spoilers too.) This is a sweet car!

  5. This is a very nice color combination. I own a Targa in the same colors, and random people seem to like it.

  6. The 3.0 liter SC motor is famously reliable and long-lived.

  7. Sold for $36,011
