1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe

Typically, a post featuring a 1983 911SC will highlight its melding of classic design, reliability and performance with the reasonable value that these 911s tend to command. As the last year of 911SC production the 1983MY tends to be an especially good candidate for such illustrations. This post will not feature sure a car. Rather, here we have an immaculate Guards Red 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe, located in Southern California, with only 36,770 miles and a fairly high asking price. While the market for the 3.2 Carrera has accelerated across the board over the past year, values for the SC have increased at a much more gradual pace. We have, however, seen some excellent examples command higher values, while the higher-mileage, less-pristine, examples have held steady on the lower end on the scale.

Late production 5/1983.
Possibly the nicest 911SC anywhere.
Impeccable original car, always garaged, recently serviced. All manuals
Fuch 7″s and 8″s.
For the serious collector/enthusiast. Please don’t ask to negotiate, price is firm. Kindly have funds ready to wire and permission from your wife.
Too many cars. An incredibly rare opportunity for an SC of this caliber.


From the outside this certainly is one of the best looking examples of the 911SC I can remember coming across. The interior looks in nearly as good of condition, though the seats do show a little wear (if I’m being picky) and the radio appears non-original. Even for such an excellent looking example from the last year of 911SC production the asking price here feels pretty high, and the seller seems set on this price. The original ad came from April of this year and the car is still available so we’ll have to see if the market has come up enough, but I would think the seller is going to have to come down on the price. Though given the air-cooled market this SC should still make for an excellent investment.
