1980 Porsche 911SC

This particular car intrigues me so I’ll get right to it. Here we have a 1980 Porsche 911SC with a little under 60K miles. The intriguing part to me, though, is the color: Talbot Yellow over Brown. We simply do not come across many of these cars. I’m always a fan of bright colors on particular cars, even though for my own car I almost always choose black. My personal contradictions aside, there is a particular allure to such a popping color and while not every owner enjoys the lack of subtlety these cars provide there are few that would deny that these cars represent something a little more special than what we get from most of the popular color options. Talbot Yellow over Brown is definitely a period-correct choice and sure to please many enthusiasts looking for a 911SC that stands apart from the crowd.

Much of the appeal of the 911SC lies in its value relative to other options, but, sadly, with a car in good shape and in a rare color like Talbot Yellow much of that value is negated. The asking price here of $37,500 is near the top of the market for a 911SC, but many of the rarer colors are highly coveted by collectors, which naturally drives up the price of such a car. Still, even given the higher cost this remains an incredibly eye-catching example of the SC and is sure to make for an excellent investment.
