In 1978 a brand new model 911 was introduced to the world with the Porsche 911SC. The Model 911SC was more refined, more driveable, more dependable and still out performed every other car in it’s class. The 911SC was Porsche’s ticket to a wider range of owners – it was designed to appeal not only to the hard core sport driving enthusiasts but also to the somewhat gentler sport touring genre.
The SC, which stands for “Super Carrera” was destined to be the last of the model 911 line as the all new front-engine mounted V-8 Model 928 was waiting in the wings to take over as the flagship for the 1979 model year – alas, it was not to be. The SC was built around the heartbeat of the classic 1974 Carrera 3.0 Turbo, an engine design that could be further tuned for performance and still be deemed practically bulletproof.
The model 911SC offered American buyers an attractive 15bhp bump over it’s predecessor the model 911S. Porsche sought to make the SC a ‘world’ car by fitting every model for every market with an exhaust emission air pump. The emissions regulator created a 20bhp loss for the Europeans when the SC replaced their 200bhp model Carrera 2.7. Porsche made compensation for the loss of power by advancing the timing of the camshafts by a mere six degrees, allowing it to pull surprisingly strong from low rpm’s – a classic feature that still graces the grunt of every Porsche on the market today.
By 1980, the model 911SC was equipped with a speedometer that read up to the US DOT-mandated 85mph (by 1983 the standard speedo read 160) and standard features that included, air conditioning and power windows which were a plus for luxury seekers, but ultimately frowned upon by enthusiasts due to the loss of power and added weight that had also become standard. Despite the added heft and waning power, the SC was still in high demand and was outselling it’s newly introduced successor, the model 928, by nearly fifty percent. It was now clear to Porsche that production of the model 911 should continue and with this new direction focus would be shifted toward resurrecting the legendary aggressiveness that Porsche enthusiasts were left longing for.
