The Porsche 911 SC started production in 1978 and was released in coupe, cabriolet and Targa forms. The SC (Super Carrera) name was reintroduced for the first time since the 356 SC in 1964 and the 911 SC received several revisions from 1980 onwards. The Porsche 911 SC officially stopped production in 1983 after it’s five-year production run and was replaced by the 911 Carrera in 1984.
The 3.0L naturally aspirated 6-cylinder boxer engine made 180 BHP on its release in 1978, however thanks to revisions it received a power increase of up to 204 BHP between the 1981 and 1983 production period. It was mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox and the engine was air cooled like most of the rear engine Porsches back in that era. It could reach just over 220 km/h and could hit 100 km/h from a standstill within the 6 second mark.
Thanks to the configuration of the flat six engine, it also has a lower centre of gravity which improves handling remarkably. This made it a force to be reconned with against other sports cars of its time and is still used in the newer 911 models to this day.
