Power output was initially 180bhp, later 188bhp and subsequently, in 1981, it was increased to a heady 204bhp. 1979 was the year that Porsche had envisioned that their new 928 would replace the 911, however, 911 sales remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into their core model. We are pleased to offer this remarkable Guards Red 1982 Porsche 911 3.0 SC which started life as a standard road car before being completely stripped and rebuilt for circuit racing by RPM Technik for their own use. Campaigned on track with success, it was then sold to a Mr D. Buck who had RPM rebuild it to compete in the Tour Britannia 2012. A six- point, welded-in Custom Cages roll cage was installed, not only for safety but to help stiffen the shell. To reduce weight further, the car was fitted with fibreglass doors, fibreglass front and rear bumpers, Plexiglass windows, RS ducktail and a lightweight roof panel. Inside the cockpit, Recaro bucket seats are fitted with Schroth harnesses, along with a Monit G100 GPS trip computer and a Lifeline fire extinguisher. Prospective buyers should satisfy themselves as to the currency and legality of all safety equipment in this car. At the time of the build, the 3.0 engine was also rebuilt, lightened and balanced with all new internals, a 964 C2 camshaft and a competition exhaust, resulting in a free- revving engine that feels suited to either circuit or rally use. The 5-speed manual 915 gearbox is fitted with a Wevo 915 short shifter allowing smoother and faster gear changes – imperative for competition use. The car has uprated suspension which is adjustable at the rear having been fitted with Elephant ‘quick-change’ plates and also runs a limited- slip differential. The car wasn’t quite ready in time for the 2012 Tour Britannia, but it was certainly ready the following year, and it went on to win the Targa Class in 2013. Scrutineering stickers on the cage show that it also competed at the Fat Albert Stages Rally in 2016 and the Winter Raid Rallye International in 2017. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive history file including two previous MSA logbooks, a UK V5c and an MOT valid until January 2020, along with a host of invoices. This car was built by respected marque specialists who have many years of motorsport to their name and is an incredibly versatile 911 that would be equally at home on track days, circuit racing with 750 Motor Club, or possibly a Porsche Club Championship entrant? The two rally lamps adorning the front of the car would suggest it would certainly feel at home on the Tour Britannia, a HERO Rally or the Winter Raid Rallye Series. Looking, every inch, like the legendary RSL/R of 1973, but guided at less than 10% of an original, this well-built, beautifully presented 911 SC offers serious fun and real driving pleasure whether on the road or in competition which, basically, is what they were designed for in the first place.
