Finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior, this 1979 Porsche 911SC Targa was acquired by the current owner in May 2021 and has since undergone a major engine-out service and top-end rebuild. Accompanied by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and maintenance records dating back nearly 20 years, this Targa is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California with approximately 45k miles showing on the odometer.
This 911SC came factory-finished in Guards Red and is said to have been completely repainted in 2016. European-spec taillights have been installed and the original lenses are said to accompany the sale. The removable black Targa top was reupholstered under prior ownership. Factory equipment includes white rectangular fog lights, heated/tinted outside mirrors, painted headlight trim, and 16” Fuchs light alloy wheels that are currently dressed in Bridgestone Potenza Sport tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin is appointed with optional black leather upholstery and includes a leather safety steering wheel, electric windows, air-conditioning, a center console, and a Porsche CR stereo paired with two additional loudspeakers on the rear shelf. The cabin is described to be in very good original condition with only minor lifting noted on the dashboard. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional.
An air-cooled 3.0-liter flat-six engine sends as much as 180 HP and 175 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transmission. Optional Bilstein struts were equipped from the factory and the engine was removed for major service in 2021 including a top-end rebuild, new belts, a new engine insulation pad, and A/C recharge as well as new brakes and two new shock absorbers. A corresponding invoice from Gran Turismo of Los Angeles totals over $21k and additional service records are said to be available dating back to 2003.
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, an air pump, a toolkit, service records, and a clean title.
