1978 Porsche 911SC Targa

The 911 SC is faithful to the Porsche tradi¬tion. One of the best built in our opinion. It does the quarter-mile in 14.8 seconds at 94 miles per hour, and the top speed at 136. The car is remarkably quiet at cruising speed. Ironically, as Porsche's horsepower ratings have crept ever upward from hum¬ble beginnings, the cars have become quiet¬er. Porsche credits a new cooling fan and muffler for the present happy state of af¬fairs, and in truth the old Porsche thrashing noise is nothing more than a distant mechanical presence. The SC engine offers 172 hp at 5500 rpm and 189 foot-pounds of torque at 4200. This feels like a lot, and in these days of microscopic jets and maiden's-nostril venturis it is. The 911SC goes! Full throttle acceleration from a halt demands that you keep your right hand on the shift knob, because you'll run through the first two gears before you know it. Third gear, on the other hand, is a long one. The sen¬sation of massive thrust is almost as great as in first and second, yet third feels far more flexible and all-round useful. Some¬times, in heavy traffic moving between 40 and 55, the choice of third or fourth was a toss-up and I'd opt for third, simply be¬cause it had so much extra punch. This kind of driving does not win economy runs, but it sure is fun. The interior of the 911SC are very German, that is to say more function¬al than decorative and generally built to a very high standard of quality.

There is a hard-to-define "rightness" about this car, inside and out. It's tight, solid and very well put togeth¬er. It fairly shouts quality. Driving it is an exercise in euphoria, a chance to sample something as different from conventional cars as turbo-props were from piston-driv¬en aircraft. If you've never owned a Porsche, or driven one, you owe yourself the experience . . .

This is a very early production 911SC built September 1977 for 1978 year modle. Excellent running and driving 911 with a strong 3.0-liter engine, four wheel disc brakes, and a 915 manual 5-speed transmission. Very nice re-paint, original interior, the body is solid and rust free. If you are looking for a nice driving 911SC look no further. Family owned since new, original window sticker and service history!
