THE PORSCHE 911

A "modern classic" if ever there was one, Porsche's long-running 911 arrived in 1964, replacing the 356. The latter'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 favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp. Progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than three liters and, in turbo-charged form, would put out well over 300 horsepower.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This lovely white over black European specification 911 was originally imported new by a Maryland-based dealer in 1983. Subsequently, it was sold to a local enthusiast who would maintain ownership for 33 years. Being aware of the many merits of such a vehicle, a neighbor of the original owner inquired about purchasing the vehicle; therefore, the 911 would obtain its second owner. The vehicle had been well-maintained and only covered 23,000 miles up until that point. Nevertheless, the owners decided to conduct a modest restoration and bring the vehicle into wonderful condition. Cosmetically, a new top, dash pad, and door inserts were installed, and a fresh coat of paint was applied. Rounding off the package were a set of "must-have" restored Fuchs wheel shod in four corners worth of new tires. Additionally, the engine was cleaned, and the transmission received a new set of gears. Work has been documented through a set of receipts. Today, just over 24,400 miles appear on the dashboard, meaning that, on average, the Cabriolet covered just 700 miles a year. Furthermore, books, tools, and maintenance/restoration receipts are accompanying the car.

Ever popular for their enjoyable driving experience, ease of maintenance, and near bulletproof reliability (when well-prepared and maintained), these 911 SCs still offer a phenomenal driving experience at an approachable value.
