What’s there not to like about the classic G-model Porsche 911 shape, purists may wonder. However, some folks simply prefer the appearance of the legendary Carrera RS, and various companies have long been offering suitable body kits to cater to their needs. This 1982 Porsche 911 SC was given its cosmetic treatment in 2010 as part of a thorough refurbishment, which also included a rebuild to the lightweight variant specifications, new paintjob, complete brake system overhaul, as well as a new stainless steel heat exchanger and muffler. Inside, headliner, carpet and door panels were renewed and Recaro bucket seats and a rollover bar fitted. Since then the 911 has been handled with due care, so that a recent Classic Data appraisal estimated its value at € 46,500 (condition 2+).
The engine bay underneath the characteristic duck tail rear spoiler looks clean, it houses the 3.0 litre 6-cylinder boxer engine which produces 150 kW (204 hp) of power and was revised in 2010 together with the five-speed manual gearbox. The two-colour (silver/black) Fuchs alloys are in fine condition, as is the car’s underbody, completing the positive overall impression of this very special sports car.
The 911 comes with German registration documents and yes, it also has historic plates: Fastening RS-style body panels is something that’s always been done to 911 models, so this does not impede their classic car status.
The second generation of the Porsche 911 (G model) came on the market in 1973 as a successor to the Porsche 911 (original model). It was a 2+2-seater sports car and available as coupé, convertible (as of 1983), Targa and Speedster.
The 911 was equipped with the following engines: 2.7 to 3.0 litre petrol engine (150-188 hp) and, for the Carrera version, 2.7 to 3.2 litre petrol engine (200-231 hp). The last Porsche 911 G-model rolled off the assembly line in 1989.
For the 1981 model year, Porsche had introduced a 7-year warranty against rust, they were the first manufacturer in the world to do so. The entire chassis was made of double-sided galvanized steel. From these corrosion protection measures, the Porsche 911 benefits until today. As of 1986, the warranty was extended to 10 years.
This car is almost a must in any good garage!
