Footnotes

  • This Porsche 911SC Cabriolet was sold new by Howells of Cardiff on 22nd March 1983 but has spent most of its life in or around London. The car is beautifully finished in Guards Red, with the special option of black leather sports seats piped in red, and the optional Fuchs alloy wheels (6" front/7" rear). It was also fitted from new with front and rear spoilers, the rear being the 'whale tail' as fitted to the 911 Turbo and extremely rare on a Cabriolet. The original service book lists all of the aforementioned optional equipment and records the service history from new (the car has averaged 3,359 miles per year).

    It is believed that during the 1990s the whale tail and front spoiler were removed, as some photographs of the car show it not fitted. The present owner, after a long search, found the spoilers in Manchester and had the whale tail professionally restored. The spoilers come with the car together with the correct Porsche-supplied 911SC rear badge. Photographs showing the rear spoiler temporarily fitted are with the car also.

    In October 2014, a major service was carried out by JGC Porsche, since when the 911 has been in purpose-built heated storage. It has been started regularly, the oil changed, and driven only some 624 miles since, which included a 45-mile road trip prior to the MoT test on 25th June 2018 when the car performed faultlessly. The car is supplied with a set of original keys and a spare set; is fitted with an operational Tracker device and a quality alarm; and has an SSI stainless steel exhaust. It also retains its original stereo system, tools, space-saver spare wheel, jack and wheel brace, original electric tyre inflater, and tyre pressure gauge.

    The car comes with a most substantial documents file (well worth inspection), which contains details of its history from new, MoTs from 1988 to date, records of previous registration numbers, sundry bills, V5C Registration Certificate, and MoT to June 2019. A lovely genuine example, many of whose owners have been members of the Porsche GB Club, with many desirable factory options.

Saleroom notices

  • From model year 1978 the Porsche 911SC was born but it wasn't until late 1982 as the 1983 model that Porsche manufactured the SC Cabriolet which only lasted for just over a year - this being Porsche's first cabriolet since the 356 of the mid-1960s. 911 SC sales totalled 58,914 cars of which only a very few were Cabriolet models and only a small number of those were genuine UK RHD cars, making UK cabriolets very rare and desirable. This 911, home market cabriolet is just such a car and with its many factory extras is highly sought after.
