Custom built by Compass Racing for it owner and completed in March 2018, this 1978 Porsche 911SC Coupe has been extensively modified and fitted with a 3.6-liter flat-six engine sourced from a 993 Carrera. The body retains its stock fender flares and is equipped with SC/RS-style bumpers while the interior has been completely redone with new leather upholstery, custom-made seats, RS-style door panels, and a host of quality aftermarket accessories. Benefitting from extensive mechanical refurbishment and with approximately 40k miles driven on its rebuilt engine, this one-of-a-kind 911SC is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
The body received a complete glass-out repaint in Black by the specialists at Best of Show Coachworks in Vista, California. The rear end has been restyled with a 911 SC/RS-style bumper and taillight assembly as well as a custom one-off spoiler inspired by Porsche’s iconic ducktail and IROC designs. An SC/RS-style bumper was also fitted in the front including inboard relocation of the oil cooler. Other custom details include modern projector-style headlights, aero-style mirrors, and a Bronze Cerakote finish for the window surrounds and brightwork to match the 16” Braid Fuchs wheels. Measuring 7.5” wide in front and 9” wide in the rear, these wheels were dressed in a set of new Yokohama Advan tires in 2018 with less than 1k miles driven since. The Compass Racing decal on the rear lid is easily removable should the next owner choose to do so, detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin has been redone with Tobacco brown leather upholstery including custom-made GTS Classic seats and RS-style door panels with red pull straps. The interior is lined with new RS-spec carpeting and vintage-style Tobacco/Black floormats and features a vintage MOMO Prototipo steering wheel as well as a custom Wevo shifter with a billet knob. The instrument dials have been refurbished by North Hollywood Speedometer and customized with an orange tachometer face. The factory A/C system has been removed although the fresh air blower is said to remain fully functional along with all other gauges and accessories.
Derived from a 993 Carrera, the 3.6-liter flat-six engine was rebuilt by Mark Kinninger of Black Forest Automotive. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed 915 manual gearbox with custom 924 Turbo synchronizers. A custom Magnaflow exhaust has been fitted and the suspension has been rebuilt with new Turbo tie rods, control arm bushings, and front wheel bearings. The steering rack was refreshed, the CV joints were repacked, and the control arms were cleaned and refinished with black urethane coating. The brakes were also overhauled with new lines and a new master cylinder.
Displayed at the Luftgehkült Porsche gathering twice, the seller states this impressive 911SC resto-mod is ready for a new owner to enjoy. The sale will include a clean title.
