1981 Porsche 911 SC

Low owner example LHD recently imported with desirable wide arches akin to a Turbo; recent recommissioning works including glass-out bare-metal respray - a real eyeful!

Dating from 1981 this 911 SC screams 80’s Nirvana with its wide arches, Guards Red paintwork, whale-tail, BBS gold alloy wheels and black leather interior– it couldn’t be sexier.

A useful online Vin de-coder reads the 17-digit chassis number ‘WPOZZZ91ZBS120109’ in the following manner, which helps to shed a little light on the car’s origin – W built in Germany (West Germany until ’89), P Porsche, O Sports Car, ZZZ European Model (suggesting that this was a European import to the USA), 91 911 model, Z market - Europe, B built 1981, S made in Stuttgart, 1 911 model and 20109 the serial/production number.

Imported from the States in need of restoration, the car has been subject to a glass-out bare-metal respray and recommissioning by West Wales specialist restoration shop to the lovely state you see today.

While undergoing the work, its sonorous 3.0-litre flat-six engine was serviced, the wheels refurbished, the glass seals renewed, the interior completely re-carpeted including under the bonnet, new brakes fitted, new sunroof mechanism installed and a new headlining fitted.

The car looks and sounds mean with its Turbo style wide arches (fibreglass), big rear wing, Turbo badging and lowered stance with those big deep-dish polished lip X-spoke BBS alloy wheels wearing new Bridgestone Potenza tyres.

Within the history file, we find the V5C showing the sole UK owner, registration application docs, receipt for purchase from California from the Beverly Hills Car Club Inc who sold it as a ‘911 SC Turbo look Coupe’ dated July 2020, copy US Title showing the car to have been an Orlando, Florida registered car with what looks like just 2 American owners, the last since 1990 at 51,000 miles who took ownership in 1988 and then sold it to the Beverly Hills Car Club inc some 33 years later in 2020 and a host of invoices relating to the recent works undertaken for its recommissioning.

Invoices include powder coating for the wheels, Guards Red paint, wheel bearing, prep materials, seals, hub-centric wheel spacers, carpet sets, window mouldings, hoses, badges, brake calliper, engine service kit parts, brake pipes, bulbs, belts, relays, leather treatment, lenses, wheel centre badges, gaskets, new battery, door check strap and blower motor assembly.

There are also a few bills from its time in the States for servicing dated 1988. The car has not been MOT’d given its now exempt. We did note the mileage indicated is 024,490 – suggesting the car may have had a speedo change at some point given it was recorded with 51,000 miles on in 1990 on the U.S Title document.

If you want to look like a Boss then this could be the car for you, freshly recommissioned and re-sprayed its ready to be enjoyed and turn some heads. Given the way air-cooled 911s have rocketed in price, this could prove to be a shrewd investment.
