This 1978 Porsche 911SC coupe is finished in white over black leather upholstery and powered by a 3.0-liter flat-six paired with a 915 five-speed manual transaxle. Equipment includes a sunroof, sport seats, a short shift kit, H4 headlights, a Blaupunkt Bremen AM/FM stereo, air conditioning, staggered-width 16” Fuchs wheels, and front fog lamps. The car was acquired by the current owner in 2018, and work has since included converting the A/C to R134a, repairing oil leaks, and replacement of the tie rod ends, engine and transmission mounts, sway bar links, muffler, and front wheel bearings. This 911SC is being offered on consignment by the selling dealer in Portland, Oregon with service records since 1995, a tool kit, and a clean Washington title.
The car is finished in Grand Prix White (908), and exterior features include European-spec H4 headlights with chrome trim rings, front fog lamps, body-color side mirrors, and impact bumpers. The door seals were replaced in 2022. The selling dealer notes the front valance has been repainted in June 2022.
The 16” staggered-width Fuchs alloy wheels are mounted with Pirelli P Zero Rosso tires sized 225/50 up front and 245/45 out back. The rear wheels and tires were replaced in 2021. A space-saver spare is found in the front storage area. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel discs, and a brake fluid flush was performed in preparation for the sale. The inner and outer tie rod ends were replaced in 2020, while the rear sway bar links were replaced in 2022.
The cabin houses sport seats trimmed in black leather with a matching dashboard, door panels, and carpets protected by Coco floor mats. Amenities include a sunroof, air conditioning, electric windows, a WEVO short shifter with a 917-style wood knob, and a Blaupunkt Bremen AM/FM stereo wired to an Alpine amplifier. The sunroof mechanism was overhauled in the late 1990s and the door panels were replaced in 2020. The air conditioning has been converted to R134a and was recharged in preparation for the sale.
A leather-wrapped steering wheel sits ahead of VDO instrumentation that includes a 7k-rpm tachometer, a 150-mph speedometer, an analog clock, and auxiliary gauges. The six-digit odometer shows approximately 45k miles, though total mileage is unknown. The steering shaft bushing was replaced in 2018, and the speedometer was recalibrated around two years ago.
The 3.0-liter flat-six was factory rated at 180 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a 915 five-speed manual transaxle. The engine was rebuilt in 1996, while the first gear synchros and clutch disc were replaced in 2003. More recent work within the last two years has included repairing various oil leaks, adjusting the valves, and replacing the oil pressure sender, muffler, fan and A/C belts, and engine and transmission mounts. The results of a compression test can be seen in the gallery below.
