MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to offer a Teutonic favorite, a 1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa that has had the same owner for the past 32 years. Road & Track magazine called it one of the best GTs in the world, exotic cars notwithstanding. Its performance, handling, looks, ride and quality are secondtonone This is a rare model, with just over 3,600 examples made in 1979 and this particular 911 is a european market spec car that benefits with lighter weight and more torque than the NA market 911's.
Finished in striking black exterior, this cars new professional metallic paint is in excellent condition as expected. This remarkable paint job has a slight purple violet tint that reminds us of the violametallic paint from 1993 Jahre 911's. The cars windows are in overall very good condition, clear and intact. This Porsches lights, including its Hella headlights, are also clear and hazefree. This wunderauto rolls on new Bridgestone tires, 195/60R15 in front and 215/60R15 in back, and surround Fuchs alloy wheels that are painted charcoal gray and look great against the black paint.
All of the Porsches body panels are straight and solid and was a recipient of a window out quality respray, including the removable targa top and the famous Whale Tail rear wing. The engine bay is quite tidy under that whale tail and the cars bumpers look great. Under that giant spoiler is a 3.0L horizontally opposed sixcylinder engine with Bosch KJetronic fuel injection and buttoned to a fivespeed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include power brakes and heated sideview mirrors.
Inside, the cars distinctive corkcolored interior is very eyecatching. If you hold still after opening the doors, you can hear the cars original clock still tick. The cloth and vinyl bucket seats are in very good order while the back seat looks equally fine and makes a great place to temporarily stash the targa during a drive. The matching color carpet is in overall good condition, as is the instrument panel with its VDO gauges but there is a crack visible on the passenger side of the dash. The blower motor switch is inoperable. A fourspoke steering wheel is present and in good order, as are the cars inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and shifter. Finishing off the interior is a Sony AM/FM stereo with CD player.
In 1978, Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC (as distinguished from the race engined 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The SC stands for Super Carrera. It featured a 3.0liter aluminum engine with Bosch KJetronic fuel injection and a 5speed 915 transmission.
In 1979, Porsche had plans to replace the 911 with the new928. Sales of the 911 remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 editions.
Competition to this Porsche in 1979 included Chevrolets Corvette, Ferraris 308 GTS, Mazdas RX7, MercedesBenzs 450SL, Nissans 280ZX and Porsches own 928.
