1982 Porsche 911 SC
This 1982 Porsche 911 SC Coupe is a matching numbers example finished in a striking specification. It is powered by a naturally-aspirated 3.0-litre flat-six-cylinder engine which sends 150kW (201hp) to the rear wheels. The transmission in this example is a five-speed manual. The car currently shows 209,489km on its odometer.
In 1977 the then-new Porsche 911 SC took the place of the 911 and Carrera models. While not explicitly mentioned by Porsche itself, common understanding suggests that SC stands for Super Carrera. The 911 is known as a landmark 911 because it was the first model to appeal to a wider market than just the enthusiast driver. It is the iteration that kickstarted the 911’s reputation for strong reliability and build quality. There was relatively little in the way of differing specifications, though the later models are preferred for their higher outputs. It uses a non-turbo version of the 930 Turbo’s 3.0-litre engine to deliver a more refined, more driveable, more dependable 911. It was also the most luxurious 911 to date.
This car’s specification selects a bright blue exterior colour which is paired inside with black upholstery. This isn’t the car’s original paint, which was a darker blue with blue leather. No aftermarket modifications are added to this car, though the current owner has removed the factory radio system and speakers. It currently rides on a set of 16-inch Fuchs wheels with silver rims. Tyres fitted to this car are Pirelli P Zero Rosso.
As one of the final-build 911 SCs, this car benefits from the most powerful 3.0-litre engine. The current owner acquired it in 2008 after a lengthy search and set to work repainting the exterior the original colour and reupholstering the interior. The owner then sent the vehicle to a Porsche specialist who performed mechanical and electrical works before he immigrated from South Africa where the car was delivered new. Since arriving to Australia it has regularly been driven, and garaged when not in use. Its most recent service was completed by BWA Auto. On occasion the ignition switch is ‘sticky’ and may require a few turns before starting.
Exterior condition of this 911 is very good considering its age and mileage. The blue paintwork presents excellently overall – few signs of paint damage are observed throughout – though it could benefit from a detail. Very minor chips in the paint can be seen under the front bumper and on the engine lid. All other exterior trim pieces present in fine condition. Very minor marks are seen around the wheels, though a deep amount of tread is remaining.
Interior presentation is fantastic. The black leather-upholstered seats retain a good shape and display no overt marks or creasing. Door cards, dashboard, and carpeting all appear without obvious wear and tear. This car misses its original radio and speakers which the current owner uninstalled.
This car will come with its original service book, tool kit, and two keys.
