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 body/chassis 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 3.0 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 a conservatively estimated 180bhp at its disposal initially, an output good enough for a top speed of 140mph-plus.

    This manual transmission Porsche 911SC comes with Porsche service history for the period 1979 to 1990, there being eight stamps in the booklet, all from Dick Lovett. Offered from the estate of a deceased Porsche enthusiast, the car was placed in heated storage around 1990 before being retrieved and re-commissioned circa five years ago. Since returning to the road the Porsche has been MoT'd for the last few years and currently displays a total of 86,500 miles on the odometer. In addition to the aforementioned service booklet, the car comes with a full complement of instruction manuals and their associated wallet, a quantity of service invoices, and a V5C Registration Certificate.

    Described by the private vendor as in generally very good condition, with excellent paintwork.
