Every now and then I come across a 911 that I can’t stop looking at. The close ups, the profile, the little details, I’ll keep coming back to all of it trying to take in more and more of the car. This is one of those 911s. This 911 takes all of the best things about the 911SC and elevates them. The seller says his intention was to replicate the look of the Carrera 3.0 and in that regard it does very well. It has the “Carrera” script – perhaps the only thing I could do without but understandable in a car replicating a Carrera 3.0 – along with the front and rear spoilers from that Carrera (also shared by the 3.0 liter 930). Add in the bumper horns, the pop-out rear side windows, the various European parts, and upgraded suspension and the whole package comes together very nicely.
It isn’t just the little details that stand out, the colors are great too. I imagine there are other colors that I’d prefer, but the Tobacco Metallic paint we see here looks phenomenal fitting both the period and personality of the car well. That period-correct theme is continued in the interior which shows a contrasting cork seating with tartan inserts. It’s an unusual, but interesting combination that helps to take this 911 to the next level. All together this looks like a very well put together 911SC and definitely one of the better examples I’ve seen. It isn’t wholly original, but the upgrades are appropriate.
