In 1978, the German company realised that it had to create a special department that would cater for customers looking for something beyond the Porsche catalogues. In order to launch this new department that was still unknown to customers, they decided to create limited edition 911s in only 400 examples, all destined for the American market. In 1978, the Porsche SC Weissach Edition was presented, named after the motorsport team that worked in Weissach.
Many years before it was offered as an option on production cars, this car featured a whale-tail rear wing. It was inspired by the 77 Carrera Turbo, but in this exact form it could only be found on this edition. It was offered in just two colours, 200 in metallic black and 200 in metallic platinum.
The wonderful example we are offering at auction is one of the very few surviving examples in Platinum colour (to be exact, only 86 remain) known worldwide as the 911 3.0 SC Weissach Edition, destined for the US market (exclusive). It was imported to Italy several years ago and has all the features that distinguished it from the standard models. One example is the 15'' Fuchs wheels with metallic platinum centres, but perhaps the most significant feature is the exclusively produced interior, sporty turbo seats in perforated leather in Doric Grey with burgundy trim, which coordinate with the burgundy carpets and black perforated leatherette headliner. The car has been largely restored, especially in the bodywork and in some parts of the interior, the engine has also undergone a general overhaul in order to make it ready for any use, whether it be grand touring or in a sporty mood. The car is presented in excellent condition. This car is part of a beautiful collection of cars belonging to a gentleman from an esteemed Italian family. It will be auctioned along with two other cars from the same collection at the Milano AutoClassica 2021 show in excellent condition.
