1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

Porsche has never been shy about celebrating or commemorating its achievements through special edition models of the 911. So, when they wanted to celebrate and honor the achievements of the Motorsport department, the choice was obvious and the Weissach Edition 911 was released in 1980. Based off of a standard 911SC Coupe, the Weissach Edition came in either a Black or Platinum Metallic exterior with Platinum painted Fuchs wheels all surrounding a Doric Gray leather interior contrasted by Burgundy carpeting. Each car would also come standard with a whale tail, but it is the interior especially that set these cars apart from others versions of the 911SC. The Weissach Edition featured here is located in Carlsbad, California and sits with 66,309 miles.

1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition

I’ve written about a few 911SCs here at GCFSB recently that were typically very well maintained, original, and very pretty. The SC was the first 911 I had any experience with so those models tend to be the examples that immediately draw my attention. This time I’ll go with one that’s a little bit more unique though not quite in perfect condition. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC Weissach Edition located in Toronto. There were 408 Weissach Edition cars produced for the US market in 1980 as a testament to Porsche’s Motorsport team housed in Weissach, Germany. These cars featured either a Metallic Black or Platinum Metallic (like the one featured here) exterior to go along with a Doric Grey leather interior fitted with Burgundy carpeting. Other touches included a front chin spoiler, whale tail, and Platium-painted Fuchs. As of its last update, the Weissach registry shows 61 surviving cars.
