In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC. There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The "SC" stands for "Super Carrera".
It featured a 3.0-litre aluminum engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. Originally power output was 130kW or 180hp, later 140kW or 188hp and then in 1981, it was increased to 150kW or 201hp. The move to an aluminum engine was to regain case reliability, something missing for many years with magnesium. In 1981 a Cabriolet concept car was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
In 1979, Porsche had made plans to replace the 911 with their new 928 company flagship. Sales of the 911 remained so strong however, that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 editions.
This 911 SC is a beautiful example that can be easily driven and enjoyed.
