History

In 1978, Porsche debuted a new variant of the 911 – the 911SC – reintroducing the SC (Super Carrera) designation for the first time since the 356SC. The 911SC Cabriolet was launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1981.

The 911SC featured a 3.0-litre aluminium engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed 915 transmission. The change to aluminium was to regain reliability and strength of certain engine components. Magnesium was previously used and this had caused problems.

Originally power output was 180 hp. It was later increased to 188 hp and then, in 1981, to 204 hp.

In 1979, Porsche had made plans to replace the 911 with their new 928. Sales of the 911 remained so strong however, that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into the 911 model. Porsche sold a total of 58,914 units of the 911SC.

The last Porsche 911SC was produced in 1983.
