1978-1983 Porsche 911 SC

1978-1983 Porsche 911 SC Specifications SpecsThe 1978-1983 Porsche 911 SC replaced the 911S and Carrera. No longer were their other models available except for the 911 Turbo (930). The Porsche 911 SC came with a 3-liter flat 6 horizontally opposed engine that again saw a reduction in power in exchange for a flatter torque curve to improve drivability. This Porsche 911 represents one of the more reliable and cheaper to maintain models ever produced, as proof in the mileage a typical example has today.
