1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet

1983 Porsche 911SC Cabriolet

If you weren’t around in 1982 when Porsche announced the first Porsche Cabriolet in 18 years you can’t fully appreciate the buzz that was created. This WAS the Porsche to own and there was quite a waiting list for one. This particular car was bought new at Niello Porsche in Sacramento, CA and has always been a California/Oregon car. The car featured the following: Guards Red exterior, Chocolate leather, radio delete, forged wheels ($1580!), cruise control, fog lights, wheel locks and a 88 amp/hr battery for a total cost of $36,950. The original owner cherished the car for over 26 years and 113k miles when he sold it in 2009. The 2nd owner had the car for 3years and put just 1,000 miles on the car. All of this history is detailed through an unbroken chain of records from the original purchase order, warranty service to current. I would challenge someone to find a better-documented example!

Mechanically this car is outstanding. It has always been maintained to a very high standard by a very well regarded independent air-cooled Porsche shops. It is nearly perfect!

Here is what has been recently been done:

114,255 miles- Brand new German canvas top, headliner and straps, it is absolutely gorgeous!

113,196- New clutch, new rear main seal, new engine compartment pad, rebuild axles, reseal thermostat, new sending unit, new clutch cable, new rear shocks, transmission fluid (swepco), oil and filter, new windshield, Cat delete pipe- $3,639

The car is tight; no oil leaks and drives like new.  The car is 100% stock with the following updates: Dansk sport exhaust, LeCararra steering wheel (I have the original), Alpine head unit (which was installed by the dealer at delivery, was a radio delete car), lowered ride height and 7&8” Fuchs as opposed to the original 6&7’s.  I would challenge someone to find a better one! Suffice it to say the cars runs and drives exactly how it should and just like it did back in 1983.

I sell quite a few air-cooled Porsches and this truly is an excellent example. I know there are ones that claim lower mileage, but I would challenge any of them to be as nice as this one, this is a car you would be VERY PROUD to own! The 911SC Cabriolet was only built for one year and they are renowned for their reliability and performance. You have always wanted one, now is the time…
