Footnotes

  • A 'modern classic' if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356, and is still in production today. The 356's rear-engined layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favour of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six-cylinder engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3 litres and, in turbo-charged form, put out over 300 horsepower. The first of countless up-grades came in 1966 with the introduction of the 911S, the latter easily distinguishable by its Fuchs five-spoked alloy wheels and featuring a heavily revised engine. A lengthened wheelbase introduced in 1969 improved the 911's sometimes-wayward handling and then in 1970 the motor underwent the first of many enlargements - to 2.2 litres. In 1977, Porsche rationalised the 911 range, reducing it to just two models, SC and Turbo, the normally aspirated 3.0-litre SC having 204bhp at its disposal by 1981, an output good enough for a top speed of 140mph-plus.
    This manual transmission Porsche 911SC has been well maintained throughout its life by recognised independent specialists, most recently Camtune Ltd of Godalming, Surrey and comes with stamped service booklet and related invoices. Acquired by the current vendor in October 2000, the car is finished in blue with matching leather interior (instead of the SC model's customary vinyl) reupholstered by Southbound Trimmers. Other noteworthy features include a Danek stainless-steel exhaust system and s-s heat exchangers (fitted 2005); Bilstein sports suspension; electric sunroof, windows and mirrors; Clarion CD/radio; Fuchs alloy wheels; and an original Turbo rear spoiler. We are advised that the engine was overhauled in July 1997 (at approximately 120,000 miles) and that the car has covered 168,407 miles from new. New rear tyres (Continentals) were fitted in July 2007. Described as in generally good condition, 'OUF 631W' is offered with the aforementioned service history, current road fund licence, MoT to October 2010 and Swansea V5 registration document.
