This one is going to be tough as this 911 possesses some attributes we simply do not see with almost any other car. Here we have a Wine Red Metallic 1982 Porsche 911SC Coupe, located in California, with Beige leather interior and a scant 4,934 miles on it. I can’t say definitively that this is the lowest mileage 911SC I’ve ever come across, but it’s certainly close. The Wine Red Metallic paint looks in nice shape and is a fantastic color. The interior looks nearly spotless. In those regards everything is exactly as we could wish for and nearly looking showroom new.

Anyone familiar with the 911SC will notice immediately the problem: this SC has a non-factory wide body added. The seller has called it a Turbo-look addition, which I guess it is since it has the tea tray and wider rear like the Turbo, but we should not confuse it with the M491 factory package as that also added Turbo suspension and brakes. I suppose we might say this one is even more just a Turbo look than the factory version that gets called similar.
How do we value such a non-factory addition on such an insanely low mileage 911? Well, it obviously will detract from the value – and given the asking price relative to other ultra-low mileage 911s I’ve seen the seller is aware of this – but the question is by how much? I don’t really think we can precisely say. All classic cars are only worth what the market will pay for them, but in most cases we at least have comparables to establish what the market should be. With this one there really isn’t anything else to compare it to.
I should state, I’m taking at face value all claims about the originality of the mileage and other aspects of the car. Those points will need to be verified and whether the mileage especially can be verified certainly affects value as well. Assuming the mileage can be verified I’m still quite curious at what price this 911 will sell. I don’t imagine I’ll see one like it again, and that, in itself, is exactly the sort of thing that could push the value up.
The market has already spoken on this car’s valuation as its been on the market for much more then 6 months. Some chatter on the usual sites about it and questions which remain unanswered about it.
