1983 Porsche 911

The 1983 Porsche 911SC (Super Carrera) 3.0 liter is a very important piece of the sporting heritage of the Porsche. Introduced in 1978, the SC has been refined from a decent car in 1978 (with engine performance inhibited by the emissions requirements of the era) to a great car in 1983 throughout its 6 year production cycle. The final production year SC is a very refined version of the SC and has all the updates: higher performance engine (about 180 horsepower for the US version), updated cam chain tensioners to eliminate failures, newer leather wrapped steering wheel, and many standard features like air conditioning, power windows, black trim (instead of chrome), reinforced valve covers, and many other minor details. It is quite a step up from the 70s 911s because of the refinements performed in the name of comfort, performance, and drivability; In typical German fashion of course!

Now to this collector caliber, turn-key, very well-sorted, California, Guards Red, original paint, original black sport seat interior, original engine, numbers-matching 1983 911SC. When purchased, it was a very nice, original car, but not quite up to my high standards. It had a $20,000 service performed last March to bring this car up to the next level. It has only been driven about 800 miles since then. Among the upgrades and maintenance that the car received: 930 hydraulic cam chain tensioner upgrade, ported and polished cylinder heads with new valve guides and top quality machine work (bringing the engine power up to around 215 horsepower with the exhaust system upgrade),SSI stainless steel heat exchangers (great performance upgrade), Dansk 1974 Carrera exhaust system per SSI recommendation, new complete factory clutch assembly (since the engine was off the car, not due to wear), new Bridgestone high performance tires, oil cooler upgrade, rebuild brake calipers with new seals along with new brake pads and rotors (due to age rather than wear), and a WEVO short shift kit. Weighing only around 2600 pounds, this car moves very well now, even by modern standards! There are many other individual items which were serviced I can let you know about upon asking.
