Following the respected Carrera of the mid-1970s, relentless development by Porsche engineers yielded the 911 SC for 1978. Powered by an enlarged, three-liter flat-six engine fortified with 930 Turbo technologies, the 911 SC delivered outstanding performance and driveability with lowered emissions. Further updates culminated in the 1983 models.

This exceptionally well-maintained and preserved Porsche 911 SC was purchased new by Dr. Foster Thomas of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on March 16, 1983. In addition to the car’s numerous standard features, options included Light Bronze Metallic paint, a sunroof, genuine leather interior, a Blaupunkt Monterey digital cassette radio, upgraded battery, limited-slip differential, forged alloy wheels with anti-theft device, as well as front and rear spoilers. The consignor, a prominent Midwest-based collector, purchased the Porsche in early 2015 and treated it to regular maintenance and service work. Today, the car remains in pristine, near-showroom condition in all respects.

As offered, this outstanding 1983 Porsche 911 SC includes the window sticker, booklets in their factory pouch, service receipts from new, an extra key, a tool roll, an air compressor, a spare wheel and tire, roadside jack, and gloves. Showing less than 8,350 miles at the time of cataloguing, this time capsule 911 SC certainly is one of the finest available and should be an exciting find for discerning Porsche collectors.
