1981 911sc coupe easy project fresh top end rebuild.  The sunroof coupe we owned about 12 years ago and sold it locally. Like many of our Porsches it has come home again looking for a new home after being enjoyed.

 

The local prior owner hurt the  915 transaxle recently after just getting the SC out of a local engine builders machine shop who with receipts included, did install a fresh set of turbo 993 head studs and valve job.

The 3.0 engine received updated valve tensioners.  While it does not move it does start up fine.

The SC has 930 front flares steel on it and had a color change at some point from white to red. It has a nice black interior with a perfect dash and nice carpets.  The bonus is the SC has factory Sport Seats!

At Weekend Rides we can supply you with a rebuilt transaxle or do the install of one or perform a full restoration for the new owner.

The future is wide open on this 911SC coupe.

The new owner might want to choose a steel turbo body using a pair of our used steel rear quarter panels, or remove the odd front turbo fenders and put stock 911 ones on.

The SC can stay red or go back to white.

The Sc has a clear pa title and a stack of records including prior to our ownership 10 years ago.  It is solid and rust free in the battery box and lower door sills.

Starting in MY 1978, the new 3.0 L 911 SC (2994 cc) was now the basic 911 model. It was in effect a Carrera 3 (known as a 911S in the US) detuned to provide 180 PS (132 kW). The “SC” designation was reintroduced by Porsche for the first time since the 356 SC (as distinguished from the race-engined 356 Carrera). No Carrera versions were produced and the 930 Turbo remaining at the top of the range. Porsche’s engineers felt that the weight of the extra luxury, safety and emissions equipment on these cars was blunting performance compared to the earlier, lighter cars with the same power output, so in non-US cars, power was increased to 188 PS (138 kW) for 1980, then finally to 204 PS (150 kW). However, cars sold in the US market retained their lower-compression 180 PS engines throughout. This enabled them to be run on lower-octane fuel.

In model year 1980, Porsche offered a Weissach special edition version of the 911 SC, named after the town in Germany where Porsche has their research center. Designated M439, it was offered in two colors with the turbo whale tail & front chin spoiler, body color-matched Fuchs (de) alloy wheels and other convenience features as standard. 408 cars were built for North America.[6] In 1982, a Ferry Porsche Edition was made and a total of 200 cars were sold with this cosmetic package.

SCs sold in the UK could be specified with the Sport Group Package (UK) which added stiffer suspension, the rear spoiler, front rubber lip and black Fuchs wheels (de).

In 1981 a Cabriolet concept car was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Not only was the car a true convertible, but it also featured four-wheel drive, although this was dropped in the production version. The first 911 Cabriolet debuted in late 1982, as a 1983 model. This was Porsche’s first cabriolet since the 356 of the mid-1960s. It proved very popular with 4,214 sold in its introductory year, despite its premium price relative to the open-top targa.[7]Cabriolet versions of the 911 have been offered ever since.

It was during this time, that Porsche AG decided the long-term fate of the 911. In 1979 Porsche had made plans to replace the 911 with their new 928. Sales of the 911 remained so strong however, that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 editions.

911 SC sales totaled 58,914 cars.[7]
