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!

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.

1979 Porsche 911SC Targa

Here’s another 1979 Porsche 911SC, this time a Targa, and you’ll notice it’s a good bit different from yesterday’s example! For one, it’s from Europe (or, at least, the European market since they’re all from Europe). For the most part the differences between Euro market classic 911s and their American counterparts aren’t all that significant. So it usually is not a huge deal to find one and we don’t really see too much difference in value. We hear various anecdotes about better handling and performance due to revised suspension and varying weight, and while they certainly may be true those changes are more subtle. You’ll probably notice them, but it’s not like the Carrera RS vs RS America.

There are some aesthetic differences though that can make these an attractive alternative. For one, there’s a greater prevalence of cloth seat inserts, which I love. They provide contrast as well as a very period-correct look and feel. Add in the wind-up windows of this SC and you’ve nearly left the world or technology behind.

1979 Porsche 911SC Backdate Hot Rod

I didn’t know exactly what to call this 911. I’ve sort of gone with how the seller has termed it as a 911SC Hot Rod, which I guess is accurate, but it’s also a backdated build since it now sports a long hood in place of the standard SC impact bumpers. Though unlike a lot of backdated SCs the goal here wasn’t to replicate the RS or RSR. So this one sort of stands separated from many of the rest and I actually appreciate that diverence.

With all of that out of the way, it looks phenomenal! There’s a great mix of subtlety and flash here that comes together really well. It also appears to be very well done in all regards. We come across a lot of these builds and they come in a variety of levels of execution. From what we can see here, this is one of the better ones.

1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe

I said I wanted to look a some cheaper Porsches this week and now I’m finally getting around to that. As is many times the case that means checking out a 911SC. While not every 911SC is inexpensive – last week’s Talbot Yellow Coupe being a prime example – the majority of them lie very much on the value side of the air-cooled spectrum. Once we move away from the very-low mileage examples our choices expand a good bit. They’re also fantastic cars! I don’t want to say the 911SC was the savior of the 911, but after the difficulties Porsche suffered with consistent reliability of the mid-70s models the SC did return the marque to its heralded status and, along with its successor the 3.2 Carrera, cemented the 911 as Porsche’s top dog. That wasn’t always destined to be the case.

The one we see here, a Slate Blue Metallic 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe located in Los Angeles, fits into my reasonably priced parameters more in theory than in current practice. The BIN price is on the high end and it’ll need to come down before we can truly consider this a good value. But as current bidding on this auction suggests, its true value should be a good bit below this BIN price so with some patience we should get there.

True, 2 owner car – this car is better than a barn find; it was meticulously cared for throughout the years Was kept indoors and only driven on sunny days since the mid 1980’s. Look at the pictures closely, it is nearly impossible to find a car so original, and in this condition.

Talbot Yellow 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe

I’m gonna to start this post off with a bit of an apology. At its current asking price this 911 isn’t going to sell. I don’t think it will sell at a price even close to this asking price. In that regard, this is kind of pointless. But the same reasons that lead this seller to attach this very high price are what make me interested in writing about it. It just isn’t going to sell.

This is a Talbot Yellow 1980 Porsche 911SC Coupe, with Brown leather interior, factory sport seats, and 122,515 miles on it. It’s a pretty rare color combination and a very attractive one at that. It’s said to be entirely original paint and interior, with the exception of a Porsche classic radio. As 911SCs go it should attract a strong price even at this mileage.

With regard to the price, we must keep in mind two things: first, the air-cooled 911 market continues either to hold or move downward for cars like this one. I just don’t see a SC attracting this kind of collector attention. Second, this SC, as interesting a color combination and condition as it might be, is priced a above the Signal Yellow 911SC I featured last November. That SC was even more rare, came in a better and more iconic color, had lower mileage, and was being offered by a very well regarded Porsche seller.…

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.

Price: $59,900

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.

You are looking at a “Single Owner” very rare and original 1982 Porsche 911SC. This car runs and drives like new. Everything works and is original to the car including the factory Blaupunkt Stereo with remote. This car has 70900 original miles and comes with the service records from the beginning of it ownership. There is no history of body damage or a spec of rust. There are several options on the classic including, Factory Alarm, Factory Air Conditioning, Factory Fuch Wheels, Cruise Control and more.

This is the first time this car has been on the market since new. If you have always wanted a 911SC, you won’t find one better than this.

This car is located just outside of Sacramento CA.

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.…
