This Guards Red 1980 Porsche 911SC presents itself as a well-sorted driver-grade coupe with 81k miles on the odometer. Power comes from a 3.0-liter flat-six that is paired to a smooth 5-speed manual gearbox. The current seller purchased this SC from a Porsche enthusiast who had owned the vehicle for roughly 11 years.
The Guards Red paint is an older re-spray which the seller states is a 7 out of 10 with some imperfections and sanding marks on the hood. The vehicle is said to be structurally solid with consistent gaps and straight bodylines. The seller also states that there is no rust present. The Factory Fuchs are in very good condition and currently wear a set of Bridgestone RE760 tires.
The original interior including the rare factory leather dash is in above average condition showing the SC was well maintained. The A/C compressor was removed, as this is very common with earlier 911’s. The SC comes equipped with a power sunroof and windows, which are both in working order. The Blaupunkt head unit is currently not functioning.
Mechanically, this SC is said to be in good running order. The seller took liberty of addressing a few service items necessary to make this a solid driving car, including:
The sale will include all records or work performed by seller, books, copy of Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and set of keys.
Porsche reintroduced the “Super Carrera” (SC) designation in 1978 for the first time since the 356SC 55 years prior. The SC featured wider rear fenders and a larger engine from the earlier 911. The more aggressive stance created the SC to be a very sought after sports car.
