We are pleased to offer this custom 1983 Porsche 911SC RS-style backdate. Beginning with a final model-year 1983 example, this SC was transformed by Willow Automotive in 2012 into the one-of-a-kind RS-style tribute we see today. In addition to its distinctive RS body styling and graphics, this 911 features upgraded brakes, suspension, and a 993-sourced 3.6 L flat-six Varioram engine mated to a G50 5-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential. Previously listed and sold on PCARMARKET, this well-executed RS-style backdate is now being offered for auction by its owner out of Pennsylvania while showing just under 65k miles on the odometer.
This 911SC is finished in White with Blue Carrera RS graphics which have been covered with a clear protective film to prevent from peeling, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. Backdated fiberglass RS bodywork has been installed including the fenders, bumpers, hood, and Ducktail rear spoiler. Other features include European-market headlamps, polished side-view mirrors, front hood tie-downs, and 16” Fuchs wheels which are finished with Blue-painted centers and anodized silver outer lips. These wheels come dressed in Bridgestone Potenza tires that were installed in 2017.
Inside, this 911 features a black interior with a rear seat delete, RS-style door panels, a bolt-in roll bar, and a MOMO Prototipo steering wheel. Other details include a short-throw shifter, pushbutton ignition, Sparco safety harnesses, Rennline adjustable pedals, a fire extinguisher, and an aftermarket Kenwood stereo. An upgraded air-conditioning system has also been installed which includes front and rear condensers.
Power comes from a Porsche 993-sourced 3.6 L flat-six Varioram engine that sends as much as 282 HP to the rear wheels through a G50 5-speed manual transmission with a billet side-cover and limited-slip differential. Other performance upgrades include dual oil coolers, a lightweight flywheel, Porsche 930 brake calipers, a front strut brace, and Bilstein shock absorbers. The left cylinder head was replaced along with the #1-cylinder, piston, and connecting rod in 2018 following a valve failure. Replacement drive axles were also installed during the engine conversion by Willow Automotive in 2012.
This sale will include a toolkit and a clean title. Offering up the iconic looks of the 1973 RS coupled with a powerful 3.6 L Varioram engine and a host of other performance upgrades, this custom 911SC is sure to satisfy any passionate air-cooled enthusiast.
