Known for their exceptional reliability and underrated performance, the 911SC represents some of the best value to wear the famous Zuffenhausen badge.
Introduced in 1978, the 911SC was a refined, driver friendly, dependable and high performing car suitable for everyday duty. It was designed to attract not only on-the-edge sport driving enthusiasts, but also to the rather gentler sport touring genre.
The 911 is an automotive icon, the most readily identifiable sports car on the planet and is still going strong more than five decades on. Arguably the last of the classic early 911 models was the SC, which stands for "Super Carrera”, built between 1978 and 1983, devoid of the electronic aids and gizmos that increasingly found their way into Porsche’s finest driver’s car through the remainder of the 1980s and beyond.

THIS MOTOR CAR:
This ground-up restored and modified Porsche 911SC was imported and registered in Hong Kong back in 2012 and currently showing only 1 previous owners on the HK VRD. Originally a Right hand drive example delivered in the UK back in 1979, later imported into Australia and then to Hong Kong in 2012.
Bought by the current owner, a true Porsche enthusiast, 10 years ago, when the car was an unfinished project, he has decided to commission a "ground up" and "no-rock-left-unturned" interior, exterior, drivetrain and suspension restomod at Porsche specialist, GEMBALLA (Continental Motorsport) after taking over this 911.
Inspired by the "RSR" look, the whole car was being transformed. With F-Series backdate parts along with RSR front bumper, ST rear Arches and RS "ducktail" to complete the look. Meanwhile the body received a full bare-metal, panel off rust proofing and repaint. The interior was gutted then completely renewed and a much needed modern electric air conditioning system with dual condensers was installed, along with RSR Seats (with extra padding), RS type door-card styled with white tartan and black leather plus RSR style carpeting.
On the drivetrain side, an engine & transmission out rebuild was done. The transmission and suspension were also refreshe. In goes a new clutch, brand new 16 inch Fuchs, SSI headers, Brombacher muffler and KW V3 adjustable suspension.
This multi-year long project at considerable expense is ready to enter a new stable. Available for viewing by appointment for serious interest only.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY:
A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356, and is still in production today. The 356's rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the body/chassis and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out over 300 horsepower.
The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S, the latter easily distinguishable by its Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels and featuring a heavily revised engine. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's sometimes-wayward handling and then in 1970 the motor underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 litres. In 1977, Porsche rationalised the 911 range, reducing it to just two models, SC and Turbo, the normally aspirated 3.0-litre 911SC having 204bhp at its disposal by 1981, an output good enough for a top speed of 225km/h-plus.
