Porsche 911 (1+1a+1b+1c+1d+1e) ♥️♠️♥️
(1980, Porsche 911 SC ... The short story – extracts: The short story – extracts: How to differentiate the Porsche 911 SCs ... well it all started in model year 1978, when the Porsche 911 SC (Super Carrera) took the place of the 911 and Carrera models. As of model year 1984, the SC version was again replaced by the 911 Carrera.
The Porsche 911 SC had the wider body of the Porsche 911 Carrera – and until model year 1978, the window surrounds and door handles of the 911 SC were chrome-plated, like those of the previous 911 models, but as of model year 1979, they were anodised black – again ... as in the Carrera models.
The rear window was made of safety glass, the bumpers with black bellows, the exterior mirrors were electrically adjustable and painted in the exterior colour and the tail light panel had black Porsche model logo/badge ... in all model years.
The 911 SC was fitted with 15" cast aluminium wheels from ATS as standard, but original Fuchs wheels were optional and chosen by many customers.
The headlamp rings of the 911 SC were initially chrome-plated, but as of model year 1979 they were painted in the exterior color.
The Porsche 911 SC was powered by a 3.0-liter flat engine, the output of which was increased slightly over the years: for model year 1978-79 -> 3.0 liters, 180 hp, for model year 1980 -> 3.0 liters, 188 hp and for model year 1981-83 -> 3.0 liters, 204 hp.
Porsche 911 SCs produced as of model year 1981 were recognizable from the side direction indicators behind the front wings and as optional, 911 SCs as of 1981 (to 1983) could choose front/rear spoilers from the Porsche 911 Turbo 3,0 l.
As of model year 1983, the Porsche 911 SC Cabriolet became the first fully open-top 911 (manually operated) with fabric hood and was available along with the Porsche 911 SC Coupé and Targa versions (the Targa was also an open car, but it had the “targa roll-over bar” as well, made of brushed Nirosta steel for model 1978 and black as of model year 1979, plus the “Targa top”, when not driving it as an open car.)
