Arrow Blue 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

This car really checks a lot of the boxes for my own personal preferences. So I hope others like it just as much! This is an Arrow Blue 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in New York, with black interior and 105,627 miles on it. The 911SC remains my favorite of the 911 models, not necessarily the best model but my favorite, it’s a Targa, which I love, and it has a bright blue exterior. As far as best 911SCs I’ve featured this one should run close to the Signal Yellow 911SC I featured almost exactly one year ago. I guess this is the time of year for selling my preferred beautiful 911s!

Rosewood Metallic 1982 Porsche 928

The 928 still manages to amaze me. Let’s not be confused, this 1982 Porsche 928 is an old car. But it doesn’t really look old. Or at least not in the way most cars from the ’80s look old. The design clearly was ahead of its time – a point driven home by how similar the design remained over the 928’s 17 years of production – and even today the older versions still look good. It is in the interior where things most quickly begin to date themselves, but on the outside the 928’s curves still look fresh. We certainly won’t confuse it for a current production model, but as I said when we compare it to the various cars of its day it just doesn’t quite show its age to the same degree.

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Alright, let’s move away from green, but we’ll still keep things vibrant. This one also will be much more reasonably priced. Here we have a Guards Red 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in Oregon, with 133,700 miles on it. If we want to see the relationship between the 911SC and yesterday’s 930, they both utilize a variant of Porsche’s 3.0 liter flat-six. Porsche took some of the lessons learned from development of the Turbo and applied it to this naturally aspirated 3.0 liter and through that was able to excavate itself from the issues that plagued the 2.7-liter engine that preceded it. The 3.0 liter is a stout and reliable engine when shown proper care and we’ve seen plenty with mileage exceeding 200K. Granted, some of those have been rebuilt, but it’s still a fine engine and a sound base for a sports coupe. Those looking at a 911SC now should feel secure knowing that these are very good engines.

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

You’re really going to have to be a fan of red to like this 911. And not a subtle red; not a burgundy. Not only does this 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa sit with Porsche’s well known, and bright, Guards Red for the exterior, it also has the brightest of the reds in the interior: Can Can Red. There’s some black to break up that interior, and of course the SC Targa itself has plenty of exterior elements to set off the paint, but overall you won’t miss this one and the red definitely dominates.

Wine Red Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe with 5K miles

This one is going to be tough as this 911 possesses some attributes we simply do not see with almost any other car. Here we have a Wine Red Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe, located in California, with Beige leather interior and a scant 4,934 miles on it. I can’t say definitively that this is the lowest mileage 911SC I’ve ever come across, but it’s certainly close. The Wine Red Metallic paint looks in nice shape and is a fantastic color. The interior looks nearly spotless. In those regards everything is exactly as we could wish for and nearly looking showroom new.

This is an original 1982 911 Super Carrera or SC with ONLY 5K original miles and one owner.
It is Wine red on tan leather. Full history of the car is included in the sale including all service records and window sticker.

The car is in excellent like new condition inside and out.

Has following options:

– Option group M05
– Automatic speed control
– Electric sliding roof
– 172 HP engine with fuel injection
-5 speed manual
-Power windows
– Center console
– Power heated mirrors
– Blaupunkt Radio
– Veloce alloy wheels

Anyone familiar with the 911SC will notice immediately the problem: this SC has a non-factory wide body added. The seller has called it a Turbo-look addition, which I guess it is since it has the tea tray and wider rear like the Turbo, but we should not confuse it with the M491 factory package as that also added Turbo suspension and brakes. I suppose we might say this one is even more just a Turbo look than the factory version that gets called similar.…

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

Here is the second of the 911SCs I wanted to look at, also from 1982 though this time a Targa. Frequent readers will know that I love the Targa, but I will admit this one doesn’t grab me quite the way yesterday’s Coupe did. The colors just aren’t as captivating. Still, it’s a very pretty car, even if in a more subdued palette. I think outside of my lower regard for the color combination the rest of this SC presents as all together a better package than the Coupe. I have less questions about its present state and history, which should alleviate most concerns buyers might have.

This beautiful 911SC comes with the “Porsche Certificate Of Authenticity”

Of course, the grand equalizer of these two 911s could be price. I said yesterday that I thought the Coupe was pretty well overpriced at $52K. It likely would be overpriced in pristine condition, let alone with a few flaws and questions about its history and originality.…

1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe

I have a couple of 911SCs I want to look at today and tomorrow (and possibly after depending on what else I come across). There is no particular impetus to this, it’s just nice timing for a couple cars I like and my general interest in the 911SC market. This first one is the more striking of the two, though not necessarily the better of the two. I’ve become increasingly enamored with a dark gray over red/burgundy color combination and this one is really speaking to me. We aren’t provided the necessary documentation to support its originality, but we can hope such documents exist because outside of a few blemishes this 1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe looks pretty damn good!

Price: $52,000

Two-owner 1982 Porsche 911 SC; current owner has had vehicle since 1983. Garage kept; excellent condition overall with some blemishes as expected due to the age. Recently had all six injectors replaced and resealed along with general spark plugs/CIS adjustments/oil change/alignment. No vacuum leaks! Fires up with vigor and settles into an aggressive sounding idle. Muffler was replaced previously with a tasteful sports exhaust. Interior is extremely clean. Leather was recently conditioned and full exterior detail done. Great running and reliable example of these cars; just hop in and go!

My guess is the exterior color seen here is Meteor Metallic, a really nice darker grey that reminds me of Slate Grey. The Burgundy interior looks in really nice shape and has a lovely patina to it, though I do wonder if there is some touching up to the photos that is bringing out some of that look. Touched up or not, I don’t see any significant wear, scuffs, tears, or rips in the leather and the dash, at least what we can see of it, appears free of cracks.…

1982 Porsche 924 Turbo

Edit 9/30/2017 – The asking price has dropped to $11,995.

Back in June and into early July, I spent some time covering the various iterations of the 924. In each case, there was something unique or interesting about each variation of the model generally overlooked in Porsche history, but nonetheless important to the survival and success of Porsche as a company. Paving the way for the 944 model, the 924 was an efficient, reliable and (reasonably) affordable premium sports car that lived through an economic and resource crisis period. Without it and the subsequent 944/968, Porsche may well have been forced to close its doors a few times.

I looked at a 924 Turbo a little over a month ago. 931s are broken into two periods – Series 1 (launch in ’79 -late ’80) and Series 2 (’81-’82). Series 2 cars all had the 5-lug, 4-wheel disc upgrade that only some of the Series 1 were equipped with. Additionally, they had a revised ignition system, improved intake, higher compression pistons but a smaller turbocharger. The transmission was shared with the B2 Audi inline-5s. They were mostly loaded examples, so like this one they have power windows, locks, mirrors, air conditioning, rear wiper and sunroof. Outside of the wheels, these changes were mostly invisible to the eye, and generally speaking don’t make a difference in the value of the vehicle. What does is condition, and when you’re looking at a 924 Turbo you want to buy the best one that you can afford. Is this the one?

1982 Mercedes-Benz 300CD Cabriolet

Back in the 1980s when the world was running rampant with small tuning and coach building companies, we were subject to creations like today’s car. This a 1982 Mercedes-Benz 300CD … cabriolet. Yes, someone took a perfectly fine 300CD and chopped the roof off to fully expose you to the wonderful feel and aroma of diesel exhaust. But it was the 1980s and the money was never-ending, so doing things like this made sense at the time. Now that reality has hit us square in the face in 2017 and keeps on punching, we are still left to live with creations like this. Of course with something like this oddity, I have so many questions I can only try my best to explain – poorly.

The condition of the 300CD is actually pretty nice. Looks to be well looked after with no major visible flaws. Sure, it maybe or maybe not has a Nardi steering wheel and maybe that shift knob is a quality piece and not an eBay special. But I’ve seen stuff like this many times over. The white wall tires look odd even with the matching white paint as I’m a firm believer that white walls only belong on the W100 600 and even then I’m iffy on them. I just can’t get over the canvas top and what went into making this happen. A bunch of coachwork houses have done these conversions but none have really stood the test of time or functioned all that well and I’d bet this one is another one of those examples.…

1982 Porsche 911SC Targa

I’m going to stick a little longer with the 911SC for today’s post. Unlike yesterday’s feature and its somewhat audacious interior, this Black Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC Targa, with black interior and 65,933 miles on it, is a bit more standard, yet in none the less nice looking condition. Though it is less rare than yesterday’s color combination – even if Black Metallic is more rare than a standard Black exterior – I expect this one will be the more desirable of the two. Collector appeal will be lower, but I’m not really sure collectors are paying significant attention to the 911SC in general so that issue shouldn’t affect things too severely. The 911SC remains a great option for those hoping for a classic 911 to drive, so we shouldn’t let lower collector appeal influence our assessment of its merits.
