Searching for the combination of reasonable price and interesting model/color/options can be a tough row to hoe in the world of air-cooled 911s. This model tends to defy that difficulty: the 1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet. Of course, there are caveats. The model is interesting only to those who find a particular appeal in the first ever Cabriolet model Porsche offered for the 911. There are plenty of people for whom a 911 Cabriolet never will be a serious consideration. But I do think this model is interesting. It’s not only the first year of the 911 Cabriolet in general, but also the only year of the 911SC Cabriolet. And Porsche long has shown an interest in open-top motoring so the debut of that concept in its full form for the 911 – somewhat ignoring the short-lived Soft-window Targa – should attract our notice. The other caveat is that the 911SC Cabriolet isn’t always a reasonable value relative to other models of the 911SC. They don’t tend to be super expensive simply because few examples of the 911SC are, but value is always relative and in that sense the Cabriolet can seem a little pricey.
Here we have one in pretty standard form and I think it looks quite nice. The asking price ain’t too bad either:
