Porsche engineers don’t make mistakes very often, but the U.S.-spec 2.7-liter 911s built between 1975 and 1977 were plagued with engine problems when new. In 1978, Porsche put those problems behind them with the introduction of the brilliant 3.0 liter 911SC. Porsche now finally mated a body that was capable of lasting indefinitely with an engine that was capable of lasting nearly that long. Well maintained 911SCs are capable of 500.000 kilometers between rebuilds.

Power was up from the 2.7 liter 911 as well, although not by an enormous amount and the SC was good for a 0-60 run of about 6.3 seconds. Leather, air conditioning, power mirrors and forged alloy wheels became all but standard. By now, though, enthusiast owners have updated the trouble spots on most cars and the 911SC remains an excellent, surprisingly affordable choice for a first Porsche.

This US example with US documents was imported to the Czech Republic in 2019. It has a complete service history since 1983! And the car comes with approx. 3 cm file of service billing and handwritten service notes.

The main features are the unique brown interior, new cover on Targa roof, service book and manuals. A new clutch has been built 8.000 kilometers ago, it is fully serviced (oil, candles, etc.). The renovation of the car was made in 1997.

The 3 owners car has only minor imperfections on the paint and us mechanically absolutely fine.
