Powered by a 3-litre, six-cylinder engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and a 5-speed, 915 transmission, power output initially was 180bhp, subsequently 188bhp and finally, 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 (we are still waiting for that to happen), however 911 sales remained so strong that Porsche revised its strategy and decided to inject new life into their core model. Having been acquired by our vendor a few years ago, this stunning SC was treated to a total strip down, and has been the subject of a total nut and bolt rebuild by him. Having always admired the 1970s Martini cars, the decision was taken to finish his Grand Prix White SC in Martini colours. A wide-body kit and an RS rear spoiler were added to the mix, and when those iconic Martini stripes were added, the result, as you can see, is stunning. During the restoration, the engine was fully rebuilt and the gearbox overhauled, the car was rewired, and the refurbished five-blade Fuchs alloys were treated to some new rubber. Since the rebuild was completed the car has only covered a few miles and has been kept in private storage. Thousands of man hours have gone into this build and, with the initial cost of the car, our vendor has invested over £100,000 which makes today’s guide seem very sensible. It’s supplied with a detailed history file dating back to the 1980s and contains a full set of photographs detailing the works completed adding to the car’s provenance. This is a very special 911 that is guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes. Superbly rebuilt SC with wide bodywork, a 3.8 RS spoiler and those iconic Martini stripes.
