In 1977, Porsche rationalised the 911 range, reducing it to just two models, SC and Turbo, the normally aspirated 3.0-litre SC having 180bhp at its disposal initially and 204 horsepower by 1981. Road & Track recorded a top speed of 138mph (222km/h) in their California-specification (172bhp) car in 1980 while more powerful models were good over 140mph. Using the new Turbo engine in un-blown form ensured bullet-proof mechanical reliability, while the other major development was the introduction of a fully galvanised bodyshell.
This Porsche 911SC was sold new by Dent Volkswagen Inc, Porsche Audi Northwest of Idaho Falls, USA on 21st October 1977 to Mr Jerry R Miller and kept by him for 35 years. In August 2013, the car was sold to Mr Richard Watley, who immediately commissioned Valhalla Automotive Inc of Lafayette, California to carry out a major service. The car had covered 46,500 miles by this time and was then sold at auction.
The current owner purchased this Targa model in 2016 and advises us that the car is rust free, having benefited from the dry climate of California and Arizona. Since its importation into Switzerland in December 2016, the Porsche has been modified to meet Swiss requirements (new lights, US bumpers removed, speedometer changed, etc). Included in the sale, the original odometer displays a total of 46,906 miles while the current km/h unit, changed when the car arrived in Switzerland, reads 7,000 kilometres, making the distance travelled from new circa 82,400 kilometres.
Since 2016, the engine has been stripped and overhauled, several parts being renewed. The total cost of maintenance since importation in Switzerland is around CHF22,000 (invoices in file). The Grand Prix White paintwork is in excellent condition and the black leather interior very clean, and the car drives very well. The aluminium-framed Targa top is in excellent condition and can be removed easily. Accompanying documentation consist of a Swiss Carte Grise 'Veteran', Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche USA (issued in 2016) and its original purchase invoice from 1977. The vendor, an owner of several classic Porsches, is only selling this one to reorganise his collection.
Please note that this car is from 1978 and not 1976 as stated in the printed and online catalogue. Please note this car is now offered with an original old Californian title document.
