Kiln Red 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe

Like yesterday’s Conda Green 911T, this Kiln Red 1983 Porsche 911SC Coupe provides a chance for me to revisit a color I had only recently come across for the first time. Back in March this Kiln Red 3.2 Carrera came up for sale (and is still for sale). With its very low miles and excellent condition the price was very high. This 911SC presents us with a much more reasonably priced option, but the condition remains quite good. It’s not quite as pristine, especially in the interior, but I actually would prefer this color combination to that of the Carrera, and with just over 71K miles on it there’s still a ton of life left in this SC. And unlike the 27K mile Carrera you can spend plenty of time behind the wheel of this SC enjoying the sound of that air-cooled six without worrying those extra miles will negatively affect its long term value. Winner!

Super clean 1983 911 sc coupe in Kiln Red metallic(looks like bronze and lighter in person). Complete car and all original with no modifications. Runs and drives great, pulls strong, transmission and gears are smooth with no grinding. Body is straight with no dings, dents or scratches. Everything seems to be in working order except for sunroof, it seems to work intermittently. Interior is all original except for radio and in excellent shape. Some normal wear on drivers seat bolster and very small hole on passenger seat, dash is free of any cracks. Very honest car that just needs a new owner. Feel free to call with any questions 917-282-3896.

For those on the market for either an early 3.2 Carrera or the very similar 911SC I think this 911 would be well worth investigating further. For some the more common Guards Red is simply too bright, perhaps too flashy, and Kiln Red provides just enough a reduction in those elements that buyers might feel quite comfortable with it. Yet, it isn’t Burgundy either. It still possesses the vibrancy that attracts most of us to these types of color in the first place. Contrasted with a tan interior the entire package looks really nice.

We’re told of, and can see in the pictures, a couple of blemishes to this SC’s seats and while these issues aren’t of significant concern they are a little bit of a bother. Perhaps of greater significance is that the sunroof sounds like it isn’t working well and we are provided little regarding its history. The Carfax doesn’t appear to show anything of concern, but it’d still be nice to see some detailed receipts. Perhaps those are available, but not shown here. On the bright side, these issues have left us with some pretty reasonable bidding so far as we sit at only $24,011. The reserve is unmet and we’re a good deal away from the BIN price, which is probably too high anyway. So we’ll see where this ends, but it looks like a promising driver-quality 911SC.
