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 5 Speed manual Porsche 911SC was delivered new to UK equipped with the desirable and rare optional electric sliding sunroof. Recently imported into Hong Kong, this 911 belonged to a true Porsche enthusiast. The car has undergone restoration and is painted in Helios Blue. It retains matching numbers and the Dark Blue leather interior is in very good condition. The car currently displays 89,700 Miles on the odometer, and benefits from a recent gearbox rebuilt by professional Porsche specialist Auto Farm Ltd in the UK, whilst a new stainless-steel sports exhaust was fitted for improved power and aural enjoyment of that famous flat six sound. Moreover, a genuine Porsche Classic Radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity was installed.
A high performance Classic Retro Fit air conditioning system, the same unit used by Singer and RUF from Jonny Hart was also fitted. The system operates using an enhanced alternator and electro compressor fitted into the front of the 911. It is both highly efficient and superbly lightweight. Turning the classic 911 into a usable everyday car even in the hot summer heat of Hong Kong.

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.
