This 1978 Porsche 911SC is finished in Guards Red over a Black interior and benefits from an engine overhaul completed in 2015 which included an upgraded 3.2-liter displacement. The car also features 17” Fuchs-style wheels, a Magnaflow exhaust, a fender-mounted oil cooler, a Nardi steering wheel, a rear spoiler, an aftermarket Alpine stereo, and a Wevo shifter. This 911SC was acquired by the seller in 2022 and is now being offered for auction out of Tennessee.
This 911SC is finished in Guards Red with a black Targa roll hoop, a removable roof panel, black rear fender stone guards, a front chin spoiler, and a Carrera rear spoiler that was installed under prior ownership. Other equipment includes a heated glass rear window, body-colored headlight rings, a fender-mounted antenna, and aftermarket 17” Fuchs-style wheels dressed in Yokohama Advan Fleva tires from 2018-2019. The seller notes that the car was refinished in Guards Red from its original Black color under prior ownership, the Targa top was refurbished in 2015, and some stone chips are present on the front fascia. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
Inside, the driver is greeted by a Black interior featuring a three-spoke Nardi steering wheel and an upgraded Wevo shifter. Other accessories include power-adjustable front seats, power windows and door locks, a heater, a locking glovebox, a quartz clock, and an Alpine CD stereo paired with upgraded Pioneer speakers. The seller notes a maintenance record shows the odometer was inoperative in 2015 and the car’s total mileage is unknown.
The air-cooled 3.0-liter flat-six engine was rebuilt by Protech Motorsports of Greenville, South Carolina in 2015 which included new pistons and a 3.2-liter displacement increase. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed 915 manual transaxle. A new clutch assembly was installed in 2015 and Turbo tie rods were fitted under previous ownership along with an aftermarket front strut tower brace, a Magnaflow exhaust, and a fender-mounted oil cooler.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a spare tire, a car cover, some documentation, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “I'm only selling this car because I recently bought a 911 GT3 and with 3 small kids and just a 2-car garage, I simply don't have the time to enjoy this car as much as I would like to. It's always run great for me, starts right up, and everyone who's driven it or worked on it has said it is a very good and solid example of this era of 911 Targa. It doesn't need anything, just get in, start it up, and enjoy!”
