MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to offer a Teutonic favorite, a 1979 Porsche 911 SC Targa that has had the same owner for the past 32 years. Road & Track magazine called it “one of the best GTs in the world, exotic cars notwithstanding. Its performance, handling, looks, ride and quality are second-to-none…” This is a rare model, with just over 3,600 examples made in 1979 and this particular 911 is a european market spec car that benefits with lighter weight and more torque than the NA market 911’s.

Finished in striking black exterior, this car’s new professional metallic paint is in excellent condition as expected. This remarkable paint job has a slight purple violet tint that reminds us of the viola-metallic paint from 1993 Jahre 911’s. The car’s windows are in overall very good condition, clear and intact. This Porsche’s lights, including its Hella headlights, are also clear and haze-free. This wunderauto rolls on new Bridgestone tires, 195/60R15 in front and 215/60R15 in back, and surround Fuchs alloy wheels that are painted charcoal gray and look great against the black paint.

All of the Porsche’s body panels are straight and solid and was a recipient of a window out quality respray, including the removable targa top and the famous “Whale Tail” rear wing. The engine bay is quite tidy under that whale tail and the car’s bumpers look great. Under that giant spoiler is a 3.0L horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and buttoned to a five-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include power brakes and heated sideview mirrors.

Inside, the car’s distinctive cork-colored interior is very eye-catching. If you hold still after opening the doors, you can hear the car’s original clock still tick. The cloth and vinyl bucket seats are in very good order while the back seat looks equally fine and makes a great place to temporarily stash the targa during a drive. The matching color carpet is in overall good condition, as is the instrument panel with its VDO gauges but there is a crack visible on the passenger side of the dash. The blower motor switch is inoperable. A four-spoke steering wheel is present and in good order, as are the car’s inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and shifter. Finishing off the interior is a Sony AM/FM stereo with CD player.

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 engined 356 Carrera). There was no Carrera version of the 911SC. The “SC” stands for Super Carrera. It featured a 3.0-liter aluminum engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission.

In 1979, Porsche had plans to replace the 911 with the new 928. Sales of the 911 remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 editions.

Competition to this Porsche in 1979 included Chevrolet’s Corvette, Ferrari’s 308 GTS, Mazda’s RX-7, Mercedes-Benz’s 450SL, Nissan’s 280ZX and Porsche’s own 928.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 44,430 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
