1978 Porsche 911 SC Targa

The debut of a new model for any manufacturer is a big deal, but for Porsche this was a big game changer for the company and for the sports car industry. The Porsche 911 has been the longest production vehicle in existence that has retained the name and the authentic body style from the first generation. With the all new 911SC coming to market, it was a significant improvement over its predecessor. The upgraded 3.0L horizontally apposed engine proved to... be very dependable and stronger. This easily compensated for the additional weight that was added to add some extra creature comforts for the driver and passengers. The additional horsepower and more torque available to the driver, this car was not only an everyday driver option, but one that begged to be brought out to the track and prove to the driver or anyone chasing it that it was still a 911 and still a Porsche that must be respected! GR Auto Gallery is thrilled to bring to market this thoroughly enjoyed 1978 Porsche 911 Targa. Finished in classic Black over Black interior, this 911 appears to have had only three owners and has been enjoyed for 181080 miles until our recent acquisition. We here at the Gallery have sold hundreds of air cooled 911's and what we have learned, service history matters over low miles. Buy on condition not on miles. The 911 offered here has an impressive service history with the far majority of its services being completed by the same Porsche specialist in Reno, NV. The car remains highly original features its original Sport seats with its original perforated leatherette, Momo steering wheel, short shifter, Speedline wheels, tool roll and H-4 headlights. The car has been consistently serviced and does feature the chain tensioner and pop off valve upbrade. Other highlights include aftermarket sound system, mono mirror, newer targa top and good tires. The Porsche market remains strong and good 911's remain globally sought after. Cared for examples such as this remain a value and represent an entry level car to Porsche market. If you always wanted one, then this is the one to have. This car has an impressive service history.
