This incredible European performance car is stylish and fast.
In the 1980s, the German car brand Porsche set out to create one of the greatest road-going sports cars of its time. The 911 model was pretty much an obvious choice as the platform had been refined both on the road and track for many decades at that point. Eventually, the sled Porsche created the 1980 911 SC Coupe, the car which you see here today. From the engine in the rear to the incredible handling afforded by a suspension setup, everything about this car screamed functional fun. Here's why you should consider buying this Porsche and completing your quest for the perfect 80s sports car.
First of all, it's pretty hard not to notice the light blue metallic paint job which covers the body in all of its nooks and crannies. Despite having been made around 43 years ago, the body looks to be pretty much without dents or blemishes. Even the sunroof, something that is usually pretty hard to take care of, seems to be a really good shape which might even have you believe that it's brand new. A lot of these great qualities come from owners whose emphasis was primarily on maintenance but you can also see documents detailing a refurbishment service included with the car. On top of that, the brakes were also serviced before the sale listing for you which should give you some peace of mind as it pertains to stopping power.
That's something you're going to need a lot of with the 3.0-liter flat six powerhouse operating on all six cylinders. Utilizing its pretty decent displacement for the time and a five-speed manual transaxle, the vehicle was capable of putting out around 172 Horsepower. Such a number was pretty impressive for the time and worked well with the vehicle's lightweight stature and Chassis built for handling performance. Overall, it was marketed as and lives on today. A true representation that you can have a fast car without sacrificing styling or comfort. The only question now is who will be the next to drive this 1980 Porsche 911?
