Introduced in 1978, the 911SC was more refined, driver friendly, dependable and still out-performed every other car in its class. It was designed to attract not only on-the-edge sport driving enthusiasts, but also to the rather gentler sport touring genre. The SC, which stands for "Super Carrera" was destined to be the last of the 911 line as the all-new front-engined V-8 Model 928 was to take over as the flagship for the 1979 model year. Built around the heartbeat of the classic 1974 Carrera 3.0 Turbo, an engine design that could be further tuned for performance and still be deemed practically "bulletproof", it is what helped attribute to the model's lifetime of success and appeal.

Completed in April of 1979 and sold new through Century Porsche+Audi of Alhambra, California, 9119201511 came finished in Black (A1) over Black Partial Leather upholstery (09), along with an extraordinary list of factory optional equipment. The Porsche 911SC would reside in Southern California for the remainder of its life, while casually driven and pampered, which certainly reflects in its excellent presentation.

The Porsche remains in largely original condition throughout, with the benefit of a recent, inspection, service, and extensive detailing. It's black "cookie cutter" wheels are freshly shod with correct-as-delivered 205/55 and 225/50 Pirelli tires, while its strong running, matching-numbers powerplant is fitted with original smog equipment and working air conditioning. In addition to Porsche's Certificate of Authenticity, this 911 is accompanied by its original books in vinyl folio, such as the VIN-matched Warranty & Maintenance booklet, Owner's Manual and original 1980 California Temporary Operating Permit. A 1980 University of Southern California parking permit remains affixed to the windscreen. Known for their exceptional reliability and underrated performance, this 911SC offers an abundance of opportunity for its next caretaker.
