After the doldrums of the '70s wrought by energy shortages and rising government regulations, Porsche approached the '80s with renewed optimism and a popular new model lineup that included the special-edition 1980 911 Weissach Edition. A one-year-only limited-edition package, the Weissach was named after Porsche’s freshly minted development complex near Stuttgart as a way to reassert its commitment to the “Pursuit of Excellence.” Advertising literature pointed out that at $32,000, the Weissach Edition package was 15-percent less than if the various components were ordered individually, but the point was moot; all 400 of this limited edition 911 sold out with more potential buyers left wanting.
Essentially a Turbo minus the boost and the wide rear body work, the Weissach was powered by Porsche’s fuel-injected 3.0 L flat-6 engine driving a 5-speed manual transaxle with limited slip differential. It also offered special paint, wider wheels and tires, stiffer shocks and larger Type-930 disc brakes, a front chin spoiler and rear whale-tail spoiler, sealed-beam halogen headlamps, power remote mirrors and antenna and leather interior trim.
The superb example offered here has come out of a 25 year ownership and was recipient of a Local Porsche Club of America Award in 2001 & 2014. Like many other Weissach Editions, when new it went straight from the dealer into a private collection and was sparingly used until its second owner a resident of Tijunga Hills, Ca, the car was meticulously maintained and we have receipts for a variety of service work, Tune-Ups, Brakes, Rebuilds etc . Now showing just over 100,000 miles the car is still as strong as the day it was born. Smog certs show very minimal change in Carbon output over the past 3 years which tells us just how good this car is, it has been so well maintained for instance the Max CO2 emissions % is 14.5 set by the State of California in 2013 this car blew .3 in 2016 it still blows .4 and at speeds of 25mph or more this degree changed back to .3 out of 14.5 allowed, that’s 100% un-heard of on 35 year old cars, my brand new Lexus blows 3.5 - 6.5. It is finished in the original Platinum Metallic Paint with Platinum Leather upholstery and Red piping.
