Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1980 Porsche 911SC coupe. This Euro SC was a grey-market import to the US in 1985 and as such has some unique options that are not often seen on US-market cars. It is being offered on behalf of the estate of its long-term owner who purchased the car in Atlanta in 1992 from the physician who imported it. It was imported with 60k miles and it is now showing 147k.
The black metallic finish over black interior with striated cloth inserts is an attractive departure from what we typically see, and we are particularly fond of the rear wiper. Extensive import documentation and service records accompany the sale; highlights include a top-end engine rebuild, head stud replacement and Carrera tensioner update approximately 25,000 miles ago.
The paint and body show to a driver standard -- there are some rock chips on the hood, some rust at the bottom of the headlight buckets and some paint lifting where the fenders meet the cowl that the next owner will likely choose to have repaired -- but the car shows well overall. Underneath appears rust-free and original. The interior is nice with an excellent dash and door cards; the passenger front and rear seat bottoms show some deterioration in the original fabric. The 16-inch Fuchs wheels have been refinished and look good.
Although this example has not seen many miles over the last few years and could likely benefit from routine servicing, it is a strong runner -- the 3.0 liter is smooth and pulls strong, particularly in the upper rev-range and the gearbox syncros feel very good (see video). The engine is quite dry.
A COA has been ordered and will be included with the sale. The engine number matches the import documentation from 1985 and is correct for a 1980 model year. Also included are federalization docs, service records, owners manual / service book, collapsible spare, jack and air pump. A unique and desirable SC sunroof coupe that is the perfect candidate for some light cosmetic freshening.
