Introduced in 1978, the SC would cement the legacy of the 911 and ensure that Porsche continued to produce this rear-engined rear-drive sports car. Upon release it featured a 3.0 liter flat-6 engine with Bosch fuel injection producing 180 hp that was mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. While European models would eventually see power output raised to 204 hp by the 1981 model year, US models remained at 180 hp (the difference due in large part to the higher compression ratio of the European engines). The SC, along with its successor the 3.2 Carrera, remains a great opportunity for one’s first foray into the Porsche 911 market. These cars come with stout engines, the classic 911 body, and, at least for now, reasonable prices.

1981 Porsche 911SC finished in Black with Black leather seats. Driven 50k miles since new. The 911SC has proven to be one of the most reliable of all the 911 Series. Finding one as clean and as original as this one is next to impossible. The weak spot on the SC Era cars was the head studs. Back in 2003 at 38,250 miles, a well respected Marque specialist completely rebuilt the engine at a cost of over $10,000.00 and addressed that issue during the engine’s complete and total rebuild. Prior to that, the car had been sitting idle for over seven years. The seats have never been sprayed and almost all of the body retains it’s original paint from the factory. Besides some stone chips from normal driving, the paint remains in beautiful condition. The car comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, all it’s tools and packaging, original spare tire air compressor, all books, keys, original window sticker and service history. Original equipment includes an electric sliding sun roof, Black headliner, Cruise Control, Option Package J17, original five spoke Fuchs alloys, air conditioning, front and rear factory spoilers, power windows and mirrors and much more. It has also been fitted with a leather wrapped sport steering wheel and CD player. Considering this is a 32 year old Porsche, I’d say it’s in remarkable original condition. It has just been serviced and the air conditioning system has been updated and works well. It is realistically priced. All serious inquires and offers should be directed to Mark Starr @ 914 217-4817.
Whale tail? Check. Black paint? Check. Black Fuchs wheels? Check. Classic 911 styling? Check. Were I in the market for my first 911 this car would fit the bill pretty well. While other exterior colors might look better in pictures (most notably a red SC with black wheels), for me there’s little better than a clean black 911 when seen in the flesh. This car’s paint looks to be in excellent condition and the interior looks to have been well maintained. Having already had an engine rebuild that addressed the head studs this example should run well for many more miles. Bidding is currently at $18,100 with reserve still on and I’d expect an SC like this to sell somewhere in the mid-$20,000 range. Frankly, that sort of price would be fantastic as a way to get one’s first taste of what the 911 is all about.
