DEAL TANK: 1980 Porsche 911 SC

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:

  • New transmission
  • Oil lines/cooler hose
  • Shifter bushing replacement
  • Shift lever ball socket
  • Engine mount replacement
  • Brake caliper replacement

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.

    @rover1298 the chain tension er was upgraded, I asked pcarmarket to add photos to the listing, they should be up momentarily

  • rover1298 1 week, 1 dayago

    Maybe I am missing something (not uncommon) but has anyone asked about the Chain Tensioner and Pop Off Valve upgrades that are typically done on the SCs?

  • CCSMOTORS (seller) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @Gsmall hello, I checked the records, we don't have records of any of that being done. We do know that there are none broken and no head leaks.

    @Gsmall hi. I will check my history as well as with our tech and give you a more definitive answer tomorrow. I can tell you it is in excellent running condition

    @mulsanne79 yes numbers matching motor. the transmission was changed.

  • mulsanne79 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    Does this car have a non-matching transmission? In the description it says, "new transmission" so I assume it does not refer to a rebuild, but rather a complete new transaxle from another car. Correct?

    I also just send a photo of the back of the odometer to PCARCARMARKET to add to the listing.

  • CCSMOTORS (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Gsmall thanks for the question and appreciate you pointing this out. As a driver-grade example, our main concern with this car is the structure and running condition. Since I do not have any records from the speedo being swapped out I went ahead and had a technician just pull the speedo to check it and he said it is from an 83 model. The analysis of the car is that from the condition of the interior as well as underneath the car that the mileage is certainly in the range that is shown on the odometer. I hope this helps.

    Porsche was one of the first manufacturers to switch back, offering recalibration and retrofit dials for their cars produced during 1979-1982. But there should be documentation

  • lochrie2 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    @CCSMOTORS In September of 1979, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) passed a bill which stated that all car, pickup truck and motorcycle speedometers were to display a maximum speed of 85 miles-per-hour. This federal regulation also required speedometers to have a special emphasis on the number 55. This mandate ended in 1981

  • CCSMOTORS (seller) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    @lochrie2 Hi. I will confirm if that is true and if so I will see what documents I have tomorrow. Thank you for the question.

  • lochrie2 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    What was the odometer reading before it was swapped out? These cars came with an 85 mph speedometer. Is there documentation on when it was changed? SC indeed stands for Super Carrera

  • Bobror 2 weeks, 5 daysago

    Seller says SC stands for Super Coupe. I don’t believe it has ever been determined what SC stands for but I doubt Super Coupe is it

    people can gawk over the new models or even 996 and up but there's something so simple about how these operate and how fun they are to drive. good luck with the auction seller.

    @Lakewoodpaul honestly you're right they really do. its amazing how subtle nice and clean floor mats can make a car - in this case the color and texture is spot on. contrast to this is dirty basic and small floor mats that you would think no one notices but subconsciously everyone does and takes away from how nice the car is.

    This might be strange but those floor matts make that entire interior.

    Saw a sharkwerks IG photo posted today of a 911 from around this year lined up to modern small everyday cars like a civic and it points out that they are so small but when you have one no one ever notices how small they are - they notice how damn cool it is to have a 911.
