Up for auction is an extremely rare 1980 911 SC Coupe Weissach Edition. While showing just 9k miles on the odometer and still wearing tires from 1983, this car is a true time capsule and is quite possibly one of the lowest mileage Weissach Editions in circulation. This SC was a winner of the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance as well as the recipient of an AACA National Champion Award in 2011.
The Platinum Metallic paint is in exceptional condition minus a few minor flaws in the metallic paint which are noted in the gallery. The selling dealer disclosed that European turn signals were added to the front fenders by its first owner, but were later returned to stock by the second owner, resulting in some paintwork to the nose. All panels are original and there is no evidence of this car ever being in an accident.
The Doric Gray leather interior is completely original and in excellent condition, having only normal wear on the seat bolsters. Beautifully contrasting red carpet and red seating accents are present and exclusive to the Weissach Edition. Finding a survivor in this type of condition is truly a rarity and makes this car a very appealing proposition.
Power comes from a numbers-matching fuel-injected 3.0 liter flat-6 engine, connected to a 5-speed manual transaxle with limited slip differential. The seller reports that the odometer was changed in the mid 1980's from the 85mph original, like many other 911's of the period. Because of this, the seller cannot guarantee the exact miles, but states that the underbody condition is that of an extremely low mileage Porsche as seen in the gallery. The selling dealer also states that after performing an inspection and fluid change, this 911 is in excellent running condition.
Being a 1-year-only limited-edition package, the Weissach was named after Porsche’s freshly minted development complex near Stuttgart. Only 400 of these limited edition 911's were imported to the US. It offered special paint, wider wheels and tires, stiffer shocks, larger Type-930 disc brakes, rear whale-tail spoiler, sealed-beam halogen headlamps, power remote mirrors and leather interior trim.
Accompanying the sale of this car are 4 sets of keys,, books (not stamped), and Certificate of Authenticity.
