We are very pleased to be offering this late 1982 C Series 911 3.0 SC Sport, finished in fetching Zinc Metallic, with contrasting half berber cloth and blue Leatherette trim.
Being a UK “sport package” model it benefits from having the larger all-elastomer whale tail, and front chin spoiler pinched from the Turbo model.
Bilstein gas dampers were also included and highly polished and forged 16″ fuchs alloy wheels, also shod in lower profile tyres. These new “sport” options really enhanced the visual drama of the cars over the earlier 180bhp models, and with just 3307 units produced in 1982, make them rather sought after and desirable.
The SC used the Turbo-based 930 engine of 2994 cc that had been developed for the Carrera 3.0, and it now featured a timing chain tensioner idler arm to further improve durability of this already reliable platform.
Using the same components as the previous Carrera 3.0 it also carried over the attractive flared rear wheel arches.
The nice history file documents the car being supplied new, on the 1st of August 1982, by Lancaster Norwich, it was then resold by them in 1984 at 15500 miles for the grand sum of £19500.

This took the car up to 1988 where the stamped service history pauses until 1996, there are however many parts invoices from 89-95 from reputable dealers such as Autobahn, Ian Anthony Porsche and AFN indicating that maybe the cars owner in this period was carefully maintaining the vehicle himself.

Amongst the many thousands of pounds worth of invoices, most notable being a full engine rebuild by Hanley car centre (Porsche Specialists) at 114444 miles, which included chain guides, valve guides, timing chains, starter motor, 6 barrels and pistons, and 6 inlet and 6 exhaust valves, not to mention the other associated consumables.
There are also many bodywork and trim related invoices showing that the car has been very well cared for, one invoice showing the commonly corroded b pillars being replaced.
When we purchased this car from its previous owner, it had just completed an epic European road trip covering many thousands of miles, fortunately no damage had been caused, but the tyres were well used, clutch was feeling rather heavy and the exhaust had a slight blow.
We took the opportunity to remove the engine and gearbox and carry out a major service including a new clutch and flywheel, any oil leaks were resolved, and an updated throttle linkage bush kit installed.
To fully prepare the car for its new keeper, a set of Bridgestone tyres have been fitted, front brake pads replaced, plus a Dansk stainless steel pre silencer to compliment the recently replaced rear silencer, which also cured the slight exhaust blow.
It is now mechanically sound, with silky smooth gear changes (For a 915), stops almost on a sixpence, and sounds exactly as these air cooled classics should.
The bodywork and interior present extremely well, and although not quite concourse, it would stand proud at any festival or local Porsche club meet.
We have years of experience and have bought and sold numerous early 911’s, so if this is your first Porsche purchase, or even if you are wishing to re-live the early 80’s when you used to own one, we are here every step of the way to ensure you have total peace of mind and confidence throughout.
Call us today to find out more about this, and our other fine range of Porsche.
