1983 Porsche 911SC

I have written previously about how the 911SC represents excellent value in the 911 market. For buyers interested in a classically-styled 911, these cars provide a good mix of performance and styling but without the prices that a long-hood 911 will command. However, the market for these cars appears to be at the onset of a rise and while the value is still there, I do wonder for how much longer that will be true. Nonetheless, I remain partial to the SC and even today they are a head turner whenever I see one on the streets. The car featured here is a very pretty 1983 Guards Red Porsche 911SC with Black leather interior located in New Jersey. In 1983 the SC featured a 3.0 liter flat-six producing 180 hp that was mated to the 5-speed 915 transmission.

The difficult decision when looking at a 1983 model certainly must be whether it’s worthwhile to look for a 3.2 Carrera instead. You get a little more power with the same classic 911 styling and it’ll only set you back a few grand more. It’s difficult to go wrong with a well-sorted example of either version. The car here presents well both inside and out and the seller claims to have “many” service records. Bidding has been strong so far and stands at $17,011 with the reserve still on. That should come up a little as Guards Red almost always seems to attract more action. Assuming this doesn’t go too much above $20,000 then I think we’d be looking at a pretty good value.

1981 Porsche 911SC

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.

1978 Porsche 911SC

As we’ve touched on in the past here at GCFSB, the SC, or Super Carrera, is an excellent choice for those first time Porsche owners looking to be a part of the club. The 911 went through a somewhat forgettable phase in the mid 1970s, but that all changed in 1978 when the SC was introduced. This was meant to be the ultimate interpretation of the 911, as Porsche had intended the 924 and 928 to take over the reins and lead Porsche into the future. We all know how that story ended, but now, over 30 years on, the SC remains a very desirable and practical classic sports car that, with modern upgrades and proper maintenance, can live a long, hearty life. This SC for sale in Los Angeles has been in the Southwest and California all its life, having covered just under 50,000 miles.

This 911 ticks all of the boxes for me. The red with black Fuchs alloys is one of my favorite combinations, and the whale tail gives it those Turbo looks without the Turbo cost or complexity. I would scan the records closely, as it doesn’t appear to have the upgraded SSI heat exchangers installed. Also, the pop off valve to prevent backfires is another modern upgrade that would lend to more trouble free ownership. SC prices, like many 911 generations, are on the rise. A good SC can run you anywhere from $17,000 to $25,000 these days, with the best examples commanding $30,000 or more. I’d say this one is priced well given the condition and mileage.

Convertible Week: 1982 Porsche 911 SC Targa

Wait…WHAT??!??! A targa featured during convertible week…are we losing it? Nope, this car is way too nice to not feature and come on, let’s face it, the targa is the man’s convertible. You can get the wind in your hair and not look like you’re going through a mid-life crisis. It’s the best of both worlds.

The SC was introduced in 1978 and featured a 3.0-liter engine with Bosch mechanical fuel injection that underwent several upgrades throughout the life of the SC. By the time this car was sold in 1982, the output had been increased from to 204bhp. Mated to a 5-speed gearbox, the 911 SC could put down some impressive numbers. Zero to 60 took 5.5 seconds and the quarter mile arrived in the low 14 second range.

With the perfect color combo and no turbo look clutter, this black on black 911 for sale in Carlstadt, New Jersey is a great low mileage car to add to any collection.

This is a great low mileage SC that I personally am about to sell everything I own to pick up. With only 66,000 miles, this car has seen 2,200 miles a year throughout its charmed life. With values on the 911 SC rising consistently, this car is a good deal at $22,850 and could be a steal with a bit of bargaining.

1983 Porsche 911 Cabriolet

After a long hiatus, Porsche released the 911 Cabriolet in the fall of 1982 as a 1983 model. Not since the 356 Speedsters of the ’60s had Porsche gone topless. It proved very popular with 4,214 sold in its introductory year and since then, the 911 Cabriolet has been a favorite on the Porsche roster. Based on the numbers these cars aren’t particularly rare, however, they are always sought after.

Generally low mileage cars like this one are commanding upwards of $30K, with average retail on the 911SC Cab at $26K. This clean looking, low mileage car for sale in Binghamton, New York could be a steal for someone looking to get in to the 911 game.

Well, Doug’s post here isn’t too full of information on the car with regards to history, condition, etc… but I’m sure a phone call will give you a sense if this car is for you or not. With an asking price of $15,500, and only 36K original miles, this car certainly warrants further investigation.

1983 Porsche 911 SC

The Porsche 911 is used by many as a yardstick by a majority of car enthusiasts. If you’ve owned one at one time or another, no matter the vintage, you’ve joined the ranks of the elite petrol heads. There are those out there who view the rear engine design as inherently compromised, but I’ve never been one of them. I’ve always wanted a 911 ever since I first drove one, a 1984 3.2 Coupe, when I was 16 years old. While there are many models and generations to choose from, I have my sights set on the SC, or Super Carrera of 1978-1983. These are among some of the most durable 911s built and split the middle between the convenience of modern 911s and the classic look and feel of the earlier examples of the breed. This coupe for sale in Maryland has a scant 55,000 miles on the clock and a full service history.

1983 Porsche 911 SC, Platinum Silver over Cocoa interior. Amazing condition, all service history and books included. Save thousands and buy pre-owned! CarFax, no accidents, gorgeous color combo, in amazing condition. Priced below market value for a quick sale. Great service history and very well maintained.

This 911 is very honest. Along with an E24 M6, a car like this has me rethinking whether or not I’ll keep the R53 Cooper S much longer. I’m somewhat torn on the color of this example. While I tend to prefer more sublime hues, I’d prefer a more bold shade of red or black on 911. I have a hunch that $25,000 is just a tad bit rich for this car. If this was the one year only SC Cabriolet, I’d say we were on the mark, but given this is the hardtop, I’d say $18,000 to $20,000 is closer to we should expect for a 911 of this vintage.
