1979 Porsche 911SC Targa


As the years go on the 911 Porsche grows in value and the Targa’s become more sort after, so having one now in the market now is a fantastic opportunity is invest in a new Classic Toy that will give you pleasure and grow in interest in the years to come.

That is enough chat about the money which isn’t the full reason not to buy this Black Beauty.

Let’s look at the Heritage of the Targa and bring it to the present on this 911 Super Carrera Targa.

Porsche was founded by Ferdinand Porsche if you didn’t know and also the designer of the Beetle many years before the Porsche Company was started. The first 911’s came to market in 1964, and now is one of the most iconic engine formats for Porsche is the Flat Six, rear engine setup.

The first ones came with carburettors and as the years have gone by the 911 has grown up, got wider, the engine has got bigger and even run turbos. Today, the 911, like back in 1979, remains one of the most user-friendly daily Sport Coupe. The SC was a little wider than the normal 911 but unless you have them side by side you wouldn’t see the difference.

Our 911 SC is an old girl at 43 years old but still very original as far as we can tell. In fact, she is actually very spritely and a really fun car to drive. Once you understand how things work in this LEFT-HAND DRIVE and how the 911 handles, it’s easy to give it beans. The flat-six just wants to please and sing its sweet song that you don’t get from other sixes, like V6 or straight 6.

The gear ratios are exceptionally long, which suits the engine topping out at 6500 rpm when pushing the throttle hard. On the other side of the coin, she is happy to trundle along in 5th gear at 2000rpm doing 100km/h and daily runner.

Things like the high backrests, the cookie cutter wheels and the 3.0l engine came standard in these Targa’s but things like the passenger mirror were an option at the time.

The Black interior has worn well for her age but does need a little TLC and the same can be said for the Targa top.

This SC still has a lot of life in her. She really wants to be driven along beautiful passes, or just be admired by you and others around as she gains in value daily.

Interesting trade-ins will be considered.
