1979 Porsche 911 SC

Icons don't come much more recognizable than this 1979 Porsche 911 SC. However, even as arguably the world's most popular sports car, there is always room for improvement. So a few well-chosen upgrades have transformed this one into something both unique and spectacular to drive.Silver always works on the 911's sleek shape, and you can spend a lot of time studying this SC and still might not see all the improvements. The front bumper was swapped out for lightweight and streamlined unit like those found on RUF's "Yellow Bird" supercar. So it gives this coupe a bold face that makes it appear as if it could also break the 200 MPH barrier. This not only looks fantastic, but also it should improve air flow to the oil cooler for improved reliability. Euro-style headlights give it a much sleeker look, too, and a very trick "whale tail" spoiler makes it one of the sportiest looking 911s around. It's all coated in lovely silver paint that has a great luster in the sun and shows off Porsche's incredible build quality with even gaps throughout. Combined with 17-inch Fiske forged wheels, and this one looks like there's plenty of substance to go with its added flash.No other door opens with the same mechanical and deliberate sound like a classic 911 does. Enthusiasts turn around when they hear that iconic 'pop' (yes it sounds crazy, but true.) And when people look, they will see a black interior just as nice as the exterior. Stepping inside you sit in the comfortable and supportive bucket seat. Then you grab the upgraded Momo three-spoke steering wheel. Porsche's race-ready sensibilities means the tachometer is directly in front of the driver. The rest of the instruments have their own clearly marked pods to give you a comprehensive view of what's going on with the engine. While this 911 is obviously a driver's car, it doesn't skip on comfortable features. This includes power windows, air conditioning, power locks, and a sunroof. This one even has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD player so you can play more modern tunes.The air-cooled Porsches have one of the unique sounds in performance cars, and this one has been expertly maintained to make sure it always is pitch perfect. The numbers-matching 3.0-liter fuel-injected flat-six motor was rebuilt around 23,000 miles ago, a new clutch was installed a few months ago, and this sale comes with the all-important maintenance records. So you know that you are buying a solid example of German engineering. Porsche always made sure that driving a vintage 911 would be a memorable and rewarding experience for those who knew how really drive it right. That can be felt in every piece from the five-speed manual transmission, to the rack and pinion steering, to the upgraded four-wheel disc brakes. It also doesn't hurt that this one is wearing superior Michelin Pilot Sport performance rubber.A vintage Porsche is joy to own and drive, and you can show it proudly with everything from the original warranty card to the maintenance records. This 911SC is a key part of the evolution of this rapidly appreciating icon. Call today!!!
