1982 Porsche 911SC

There are times when I forget that part of the success of the 911 comes not only through it’s excellent performance but also because it has almost always provided that performance with a high level of refinement. It is a hallmark of the marque itself, as evidenced by its forays into halo-car territory with the 959, Carrera GT, and the new 918 Spyder. None of these were stripped-out racers like the F40. This digression was sparked by the car we see here, an otherwise standard 911SC that happens to be in a stunning shade that showcases the refined nature of the 911. There are 911s that are brash, like yesterday’s 930 Slantnose, and then there are 911s that appear almost serene in comparison. Of course, the performance is still there, but it’s packaged entirely differently. Here we have a (possibly) Rosewood Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC, located in Nashville, with 65,325 miles on it. It is, in a word, beautiful.

I have been quite curious about the state of the 911SC market and this example should give us a nice gauge on where things stand. It’s a one-owner car with very reasonable mileage that looks to be in very good condition and, to top it off, it’s a rare color. And my is that color beautiful. The color looks a little lighter than other Rosewood Metallic examples I’ve seen (it looks more like Wine Red Metallic) so it would be useful to have the paint code, but it’s also possible the lighting is throwing things off. Either way, it’s really pretty and the contrast with the Tan interior makes this an elegant SC. The only negative from a collector standpoint appears to be the aftermarket stereo, but while those aren’t always easy to source it is something that can be replaced. Bidding currently stands at $21,100 and I’ll have my eye on this auction for sure.

    It is gorgeous! Also looks very similar to Port Rose Metallic that was used at the same time on Audis. Rare but very pretty.

    A second look reminds me that Port Rose is quite a bit lighter but overall achieves a similar effect. Boy, this car is pretty.

    Beautiful. Has anyone found an effective way to produce air conditioning on these cars?
