1979 Porsche 911SC Targa

Ah, the Porsche 911SC Targa, the car my father owned when I was a kid and my first experience in a Porsche of any type. Those early experiences have made these a long-time favorite of mine even if other models now capture my attention more or elicit greater excitement. But for that basic 911 experience this is still the model to which I frequently return and I always enjoy coming across interesting examples. The one we see here fits that bill well: a Petrol Blue Metallic 1979 Porsche 911SC Targa, located in Alabama, with 65,095 miles on it. My own first car, though not a Porsche, was of a similar color to this Targa and it’s always been a part of the color spectrum I’ve enjoyed. As a metallic shade these colors show particularly well under direct light and I think the images here bear that out. With pretty low mileage for its age this looks to be an excellent 911SC and one that should turn some heads any time it finds its way onto the streets.

Judging by where the opening bid of this reserve auction has been set this seller is aiming for near top dollar for this Targa. With its rare color, low mileage, and what appears to be a good deal of documentation, it certainly possesses many of the attributes we would associate with such a car. That said, the condition doesn’t really seem to be at that level. It doesn’t appear to be in poor condition by any means, but the exterior doesn’t seem to have that pristine freshness that we would expect from the best examples on the market. I could be mistaken in my expectations in where this reserve might lie, but that is something we’ll have to follow. Either way, I do think this is a nice example that should provide excellent motoring to its new owner!

  1. Gorgeous blue. Rather like Audi lago, eh Carter?

  2. Pretty similar but a touch brighter! Good call.

  3. Uh, the AC compressor is missing from the engine bay, no? Listed on the docs. Not noted in listing. Am I crazy?

  4. When did Porsche join the “Holy Shit” price club? I know Italian car prices are crazy as their owners, but now Porsche is joining the club.

    At one point I owned a 944S2 – it was the only car I’ve ever owned that hit me for $500.00 oil changes at the dealer. It was consistent… Someone did me a HUGE favor and stole it from my garage.
