From the very moment you put the key in the ignition of this 1980 Porsche 911 SC, you will know precisely why Porsche is among the most respected names in the entire automotive world. Prepare to be amazed as you check out this quintessential legendary sports car.
Isn't it amazing how some colors just look like they belong on a particular body style? No question about it, the sinister black finish that adorns this automobile is a perfect match for the sleek lines of the 911 SC. This car is wearing what is likely its original coat, and although it shows a few signs of use, it still maintains a nice bright shine and deep luster that looks great under our lights. The finish looks very fresh for its age with very few imperfections to speak of, including chip-free front fenders and hood, although the rear deck lid does have a few minor chips. This car presents itself extremely well cosmetically overall though, a testament to the 63,286 low and careful miles that are on the clock. All the plastic trim is in good shape and perfectly accentuates the overall appearance as well, the painted bumpers are in great shape, and the sunroof up top seals flush against the roof. Factory 16-inch Fuchs rims shod with grippy Michelin radials add yet another nice touch. And to top it all off, the wraparound red taillight/reflector displays the Porsche name with a boldness that reminds you what a legendary car this is.
If you're a Porsche aficionado, you'll have a hard time containing your enthusiasm once you hear the unforgettable sound of a 911 door being opened and shut. It's deliberate and authoritative. If you've ever heard it, you know what we're talking about. Looking inside, you'll see a wonderfully attractive black leather interior with super-clean seat covers and plush carpet below. It is without a doubt the perfect color combination to complement the exterior, nothing beats black-on-black. When you crawl inside this 911, you know you're sitting in a car that was designed with the driver in mind. Grasp the upgraded three-spoke Momo steering wheel (OEM wheel available with sale) and look around as you bask in the comfort of the plush seats. You'll appreciate the way the inside is laid out. Race-bred instrumentation places the tach directly in front of the driver, while all other stock VDO gauges are clearly marked and well within view. Rest assured, this interior possesses all of the amenities you'd expect from a high-end sports coupe as well, including power windows and door locks, a Pioneer AM/FM/CD, and factory A/C, although it will need to be serviced to blow cold again. This thing is loaded! And as you pull out onto the street, you'll experience that feeling of unbridled freedom as soon as you open the power sunroof. This is luxury in motion!
Revered for its performance and durability, the 911's tried-and-true 3.0L flat-six motor has long been acknowledged as one of the best Porsche engines ever built. Air-cooled and fuel-injected, this potent power plant has a sound and feel all its own. It was rated at 188 HP for 1980 and generates an insane amount of torque that enables it to launch like a rocket ship. If you're looking for a sports car with some serious motivation, this is it. The flat-six powering this 911 is not the car's original motor, but it is reported to be a 1983 block with 43k miles on the clock, so it should certainly have plenty of life left in it. The five-speed manual transmission that it mates to is the only transmission you ever want in a 911, and it's managed by a short-shifter inside the cabin. Take a peek underneath and you'll see a super-sanitary suspension that showcases the benefits of German engineering and an easy, low-mileage life spent in Texas. Power four-wheel disc brakes provide ample stopping power, and it sits on a set of black Fuchs wheels wrapped in Michelin radials at each corner.
It takes some cars decades to be considered a classic. This 1980 Porsche 911 SC was an icon on wheels the moment it rolled off the assembly line. This is the epitome of a driver's car. Shouldn't that driver be you? Call today!
