Of the many iconic cars to have graced our shores, the Porsche 911 has a special place in any motorhead’s heart. The Porsche 911 was first produced in 1964 as a two-door, 2+2 seater high-performance rear-engined sports car. As of 2022, we can safely say that the Porsche nine eleven is still up there and lives to its heritage. 1978 saw Porsche introduce the 911SC, with the SC standing for Super Carrera, it was produced till 1983 and saw sales of 58,914 units worldwide. Of the 58,914 units sold, one of those Porsche SCs, a 1980 Porsche 911SC Targa is up for sale with just 188,000 miles and sold by the original owner.
This vintage 1980 Porsche 911SC Targa is finished off in an exquisite Charcoal Gray patina that beautifully highlights the iconic silhouette that continues to this day on the current-model 911s. It is reported that the color was repainted to Charcoal Gray almost 20 years ago. It sits elegantly on a set of 5-spoke black and silver painted OEM wheels with the Porsche shield on the hubcaps. The Targa top is finished off in black. Tan is the theme for the interior, interspersed with black for that smooth look of comfort and luxury. The standard radio has been upgraded to a radio with a 12-CD changer and an amplifier mounted in the back, all from Blaupunkt. The vintage 3-spoke steering wheel is reminiscent of the 80s look, with a boxy design and the Porsche shield etched in the middle. The owner reports that the seats have been recovered and that he has done whatever the car needs since it was new. The new owner will also receive all the original books and manuals with the car at sale.
This 1980 Porsche 911SC Targa is powered by a 3.0L 6-cylinder aluminum engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. Power output is estimated at 180hp with the 5-speed manual transmission. The Porsche 911SC comes with all-around disc brakes, a sure way to ensure a speedy stop when necessary. 0-62 mph was clocked in at 6.8 seconds, but auto reviewers at that time were able to achieve better numbers, as Porsche was known to be a bit conservative with their performance figures.
