For Sale: 1978 Porsche 911 Carrera in Gilroy, California

Vehicle Description

In 1978 Porsche introduced the new version of the 911, called the '911SC'. Porsche reintroduced the SC designation for the first time since the 356SC (as distinguished from the race engine 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The "SC" stands for "Super Carrera". It featured a 3.0-litre aluminum engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission.  The move to an aluminum engine was to regain case reliability, something missing for many years with magnesium.  This is a stunning example of a numbers matching 1978 911, powered by the 3.0 6 cyl engine and driven by the 915 5 speed transmission. This is finished in its original Talbot Yellow with Cork leather interior. This little German sports car runs and drives great, super fast, dependable, handles like its on rails and very collectible.  #103827.  Now on display at the home of “over the top cars”CHECKERED FLAG CLASSICS7743 MONTEREY ST GILROY, 408-847-8788 or 888-625-2774, sold as-is, California buyers are responsible for sales tax and license fees.                                                   On the web: checkeredflagclassics.com   Buy with confidence I am a licensed bonded California dealer.
